Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Pronounced “tah-not”, tannin is the perfect word to associate with this grape. It is a dry, full bodied drinker high in antioxidants. This unique grape originated from Uruguay and has found a perfect home in Texas terroir with it’s hardy nature. This vintage has a robust bouquet of raspberry, cola, and soft leather, while the palate is full and complex with ripe berries, plum, espresso, and cardamom. Firm tannins and a pop of acid lend to an elegant finish that will only continue to soften with time.
Production Notes
Two years of aging in French & American oak.
Food Pairing Notes
The firm tannin structure is best paired with fat and protein. A well-marbled cut of meat, pasta with cream sauce, duck confit, fatty BBQ, short ribs, triple cream cheese, baked brie, Roquefort, dulce de leche, cheesecake all pair wonderfully.
