2013 Tannat

2013 Tannat

Hailing from the Madiran region of southwest France, where Tannat is the primary grape grown and used for blending, this black-berried grape has found a perfect home in Virginia. Perfumed, stewed red fruits, tar. Layered with flavors of smoke, ink, cooked strawberry, with cocoa and leather from the long oak aging. A 20% blend of Fer Sevadou brings in more red fruit character with sour cherry and raspberry. The big structured tannins carry through to a long lingering finish and promise a long life in the bottle.

Wine Profile
Production
A big assertive wine like this, that is fruit forward and has firm strong tannins, will pair with red meats that are well caramelized from grilling or roasting and accompanied by red-wine based sauces. The Tannat has a particular smoky, “roasted meat” flavor profile, which lends itself to earthy mushroom dishes, bean and smoked meat dishes like Cassoulet studded with sausages and duck, as well as a simple, well caramelized beef roast. Remember the food should be as big in flavor as is our Tannat.
