K&L Notes

Cabernet & Tannat blends are two red-wine grape varieties native to the southwestern corner of France, and are often found blended together in the wines of Madiran, Irouleguy and in various other appellations of the South-West. The region's staple grape, Tannat, often forms the bulk of these blends, with Bordeaux darlings Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc used in smaller proportions. That said, Cabernet & Tannat wines tend to be serious and dense, given the heavy tannins of their constituents. The blend often displays good structure, with abundant characters of sweet spice and red and black fruits like plum and blackcurrant.

To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
