This varietal, traditionally and famously grown in the Madiran region of France, has a name from which the word “Tannin” is derived. Our 2014 Tannat is in the oldest and purest tradition of Tannat, 100% single varietal. While loaded with tannins, they have been softened and rounded through a long cold maceration and cooler primary fermentation followed by two full years in barrel. While still large right now, this wine will tame with age, developing further softness. Many of us will also embrace this wine early for its sheer size, big fruit and chocolaty characteristics.
