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.
