Bodega Garzon 2018 Tannat Reserve
Uruguay South America
Wine & Spirits 92 Rating
Germán Bruzzone ferments this tannat in cement, then ages it in a mix of French oak barrels and casks, creating a clean, austerely tannic red that lightens up and feels coastal in the end. It’s frisky with turmeric and green-peppercorn scents, lasting on meaty dark fruit. Structured and savory, this will age well over the next several years, or decant it now for a salad of duck confit.
Must be ordered.
