Price: $20

Rating: 14.5/20

Region: Canelones, Uruguay

Varietal: 100 percent Tannat

Tasting Notes: A wine varietal native to France, Tannat is now considered to be Uruguay’s signature varietal, where it produces full-bodied red wines boasting dark fruit flavors with spicy, peppery notes. The Artesana 2011 Tannat is well-balanced and surprisingly light on the palate, considering its high alcohol content.


Food Pairings: Strong cheeses, roasted or grilled meats
