2016 Texas Tannat®
With care and experience, Tannat produces balanced, full-bodied red wines with power, structure and complexity.
24 months in 1/3 new American oak, and 2/3 neutral barrels
whole berry conventional fermentation
Scents of warm Texas limestone in summer rain and sharp crushed blackberries launch a burst of mouthwatering pomegranate, Tellicherry peppercorns, and espresso-tinged dusty tannins. Shades of red licorice and spearmint linger on the smoky finish.
2016 Texas Tannat® combines grapes from growers in both Texas Hill Country and Texas High Plains AVAs.
Half-ton, open-top fermentation bins, punched down twice daily.
Food Pairing Notes
2016 Texas Tannat® pairs well with robust flavors such as grilled lamb, beef, or game; aged cheeses; and dry cured hams and sausage.
