Production Notes

Tannat is generally associated with the Madiran region of France at the foothills of the Pyrénées Mountains, and it is also the national grape of Uruguay. Although typically used as a blending component at Halter Ranch, we additionally produce a limited quantity of a single varietal Tannat for our Silver Label Club. This wine opens with aromas of black cherry, hazelnuts, and caramel with flavors of blackberries, cocoa powder and chocolate truffles. 

Pairs beautifully with roasted and grilled lamb or beef, or slow-cooked meat with reduction sauces.
