Viñedo de Los Vientos Tannat Atlàntida 2007
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.
My girlfriend and I have been holding out on opening our last bottle 2009. It was suggested at a wine tasting, and though we usually drink pinot, this wine fits the bill for us. Problem is, where to buy more?
Surprising Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer and Muscato Blanco. Golden with a floral nose and succulent agave nectar. Nice acidity, tart without pucker, dry and rich, but clean. Lastly, it has a bright sparkling minerality to just confuse you a little bit further. A wine of opposites and something one would drink if you could jump into a garden picnic scene in an Italian tapestry pillow.
just enjoyed with a fine beef stew. Even my wife who does not like reds much thought this was excellent with complex flavors.
The beauty starts in the color - with a deep straw yellow hue. It continues with the aroma of orange peel and touch of almond. On the palate is a round lush touch of orange peel again along with a hint of winter spices and nice bright finish.
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.
Tannat from Uruguay does not have the same complexity of flavor as those from Madiran in my opinion. I prefer Pierre Laplace Madiran.

We highly doubt you would guess where this wine came from if you tasted it blind. You'd certainly note its clean, unoaked New World style. This is a dry white blend that’s highly aromatic and fresh, with floral and apple fruit. It’s also delicious.
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 would it be fair to say that Tannat may have the name it does due to the tannins in the skins. Yes, the tannins are firm but boy are they good with anything meat based (especially grilled). So, go ahead, bring out the grill and sneak it on to your fire escape or rooftop and enjoy.
