Production Notes

Tannat is generally associated with the Madiran region of France at the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains, and it is also the national grape of Uruguay. Although usually used as a blending component at Halter Ranch, for the second time in 2014 we decided to bottle 125 cases of Tannat on its own. This wine has aromas of dark brambly fruits with coffee and allspice. Bright flavors of blackberries and baking spices complement the rich, full-bodied palate which leads to a long structured finish. Drink this wine with roasted and grilled meats with reduction sauces, or on any special occasion.
