Uruguay is making the Tannat grape its own and there are more and more on the market.  14% ABV.  Inky purple in color, opaque and bright.  The nose has black cherries with baking spices.  On the palate, strong acidity.  Nice texture.  Firm tannins.  The palate has black cherry fruit.  A long finish.  There is some value here.  This should drink better with food to counter the tannins.  Cassoulet would be a nice match.  Drink over the next five to seven years.
