Wine Wednesday: Tannat

Tannat is a grape I was just introduced to and I am it’s newest fan!  Tannat is a red wine grape from Uruguay, but before it was planted in South America it was grown in southwest France and blended with cabernet or merlot.  It is deep red in color and has high tannin levels.

In addition to thriving in France and South America, the tannat is being planted in the U.S., specifically in Arizona, Maryland and Virginia.  The one I tasted was from Page Springs Cellars’ Dancing Apache Vineyard, located not far from the Page Springs Cellars’ tasting room in Cornville, AZ, ten miles south of Sedona.

If you enjoy a rich cab, definitely give the smooth tannat a try!  I highly recommend!
