Rich and round with silky tannins and elegant acidity, which help to balance the ripe fruit qualities, which are characteristic of the 2017 vintage. Drinking well now, but could be set aside for up to 5-7 years to round out those still young tannins even more.

Lush blackberry, black plum and powdered dark chocolate dominate the aromatic profile of our 2017 Tannat. The palate is rich and round with silky tannins and elegant acidity, which help to balance the ripe fruit qualities, which are characteristic of the 2017 vintage.

Vineyard Notes

Planted in the early 2000’s, our Tannat makes up just 0.85 acres of our estate vineyards. This site is well suited for Tannat, with many high-degree days to give this big varietal time to ripen. In fact, it is the largest yielding block on our Estate.
