Viñedo de Los Vientos Tannat Atlàntida 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

With the overwhelming scent of dry autumn leaves and a hint of morning dew, covering newly sprouted wild Crimini mushrooms, near a bush of ripe blueberry. With a pronounced overtone that inhibits the game-like nature of this varietal, its Pinenut finish enhances the warm marmalade coating of the palate.

We love do blends.not varietals, even blending grapes or must before or during the fermentation to achieve the most unique flavor. Read less

just enjoyed with a fine beef stew. Even my wife who does not like reds much thought this was excellent with complex flavors.

Tannat from Uruguay does not have the same complexity of flavor as those from Madiran in my opinion. I prefer Pierre Laplace Madiran.

Unusual wine - at my tasting they either really like it or not at all. I enjoyed it because 1st time I had it. Tannic and acidic but not in an offensive way.

The nose delivers overwhelming aromas of autumn leaves and earth, while the palate is black licorice and wild mushrooms. - Winery ** Only 8 in Stock **

A rarity from Uruguay Tannat is unique to just a handful of wine regions world wide predominately blended in the wines of Madiran in southwest France. It is in Uruguay however bottled as a 100% varietal where it arguably finds its most polished expression. Redish-black in the glass this young tannic red is beautifully balanced and silky on the palate. Deep dark chocolate espresso and blackberry flavors swirl around a structured frame with plenty of potential for aging. No shortage of character here yet the fruit is pure and alluring with skilled crafting.

We're no etymologists, but we think it would be fair to say that the red Tannat grape got its name from the tannins in its skins. Yes, the tannins in this wine are firm - but boy, are they good with anything meat-based, especially if it's grilled. So go ahead: lug the barbecue out to your fire escape and enjoy.
