Production Notes

Tannat is traditionally associated with the Madiran region of France at the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains, and it has also become 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, dark plum, and blackberry liquor, with flavors of bright red fruit, dried cherries, and a hint of leather.

Pair with roasted and grilled lamb or beef, and slow cooked meat with reduction sauce.
