What did you say? Tannat?
Native to France, Tannat has become the unlikely hero of Uruguay and put it on the winemaking map. It’s an interesting grape that continues to surprise the way it expresses terroir so specifically: where it’s grown and how it’s vinified will change its flavor profile considerably. On the nose, Tannat exhibits black fruit, topsoil, herbs, and wet stones. On the palate, it can range from highly tannic and structured to softer and more rounded. It typically displays blackberry, currant, plum, smoke, minerality, dried spices, but the berry quality can be fruitier and softer when it’s from Uruguay. We will be tasting a Tannat and a Cabernet Sauvignon from Uruguay.

What is Languedoc Roussillon famous for?
For wine enthusiasts on a budget! It is known as a great value wine region and, of course, for its delicious wines. It is also known for blending wine: Mediterranean grape varieties like Grenache and Cinsault are joined in the vineyards by more famous French varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay. Domenico will be pouring four (4) different wines from the Pays D'Oc IGT classification. We hope to see you!
