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 produce a limited quantity of a single varietal Tannat for our Silver Label Club. The 2018 Tannat has aromas of red currant, pomegranate seed, clove, and cinnamon. The palate is rich upon entry, bursting with raspberry, cherry, and black tea. The tannins are present, but well integrated, creating a long, textured, powerful finish.

Pair with roasted meats, hearty stews, and dry-rubbed BBQ.
