Flavor & Winemaking: Tannat is a rare variety famous for making deep, spicy, smoky wines. Our Tannat has an aroma of blackberry bramble and roasted meats, typical of the variety, with a luscious chocolate note on the finish. Complex undertones of peppercorn medley, molasses, soy sauce, hoisin, & violets add layers. Aged 8 months on 40% new French oak, 20% American AO Char #3 bourbon oak, 20% maple wood, and 20% hickory wood.

    “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” —Unknown

    “Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy. For if you bake bread with indifference, you bake a bitter bread that feeds but half man's hunger. And if you grudge the crushing of the grapes, your grudge distils a poison in the wine. And if you sing though as angels, and love not the singing, you muffle man's ears to the voices of the day and the voices of the night.” Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

    “Don’t follow the path, go where there is no path and begin the trail” -Ruby bridges 

    Pairs with Gary Busey & Diehard
