2008 Don Pascual Tannat "Pueblo del Sol" Juanico Uruguay

SKU #1054711

Everyday drinking Tannat? Yes it's possible with this unoaked version. This wine has bright red and blue fruit flavors of pomegranate, dried blueberries with a touch of lavendar and graphite. There is good grip here but it is an appealing style that is a great introduction to this varietal. At just 12.5% abv, there is a lot of character and charm in this delicious wine from Uruguay.

After months of lobbying Keith Mabry (begging actually) to start carrying Tannats from the obscure country of Uruguay, it's finally here. I am very familiar with Tannat from its native home, the southwest wine region of France (namely Madiran and Irouleguy) but kept hearing wonderful things about this grape in Uruguay. It sure is different than its french counterpart, but the essential is there. Sure it has tannins, as it should, but with it, it also has an intense pomegranate flavor, together with ripe berries and vanilla. It is deliciously rich, and full body. Just what I would recommend for steaks (Uruguay's national dish), not to mention a hefty dose of Resveratrol!

This juicy, easy-drinking tannat from Uruguay is very different from the dark and brooding Madiran wines from the south of France. Aromas of juicy raspberry and blackberry fruit on the nose, accented by notes of spice, are echoed on the palate, which is fresh and lifted with medium tannins. Here we have a great example of the style of Tannat produced in Uruguay: a food-friendly red wine that lighter in body, shows more fruit character, and is less tannic than the French counterpart, but still substanstial enought to hold its own with carne asada. A really pleasurable table wine for the price.

I will begin my monthly recommendations with a wine from a grape that I have never heard of, let alone, write about, and from a country I have never seen in our inventory, the Don Pascual 2008 Tannat, Pueblo del Sol,” Juanico, Uruguay. Much like a Northern Rhone Valley village syrah, this deeply colored, peppery spicy puppy is lush and broad on the palate as well as in the nose. It is rich, has incredible grip, balance, and structure (kind of like the way most California Cabernets use to be made like) and has a long, deeply flavored finish. Anderson has informed me that this will definitely be one of our house reds for the month. 12.5% abv (Jim Barr)
Drink from 2010 to 2015
