Tannat 2012




From it’s cultivation in Southwest France and South America to our first planting in Indiana, Tannat has long been known for it’s rustic, muscular charm. Our Tannat is an ideal choice for those who crave rich, robust wines that challenge their palates, but reward those adventurous drinkers with an utterly unique and delicious experience.

Dark, brooding aromas of smoke, roasted fig, toasted oak and plum sauce combine with substantial, but fine grained, tannins that allow the creme de cassis and vanilla flavors to slowly unfold across the palate. As this mass of alcohol and tannins opens, the wine echoes the roasted fig and plum sauce reduction, still warming over an oak ember fire. The tannins pull down the curtain on this intense, young wine, foreshadowing many years of evolution to come.
