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.
