Tannat makes wines meant to be enjoyed with food. This brilliant ruby colored wine has a nose redolent of dark fruits (cassis and blackberry) with hints of spice and pepper. Supple and elegant across the palate with berry fruit and spice notes leading into a tannic finish. Enjoy with BBQ steak or lamb, game, and country-style terrine.
The Lapalace family has been making wine on their estate in Southwest France since the 1930s. They are passionate about continuing the tradition of winemaking and promoting local varieties like Tannat against the encroaching monoculture of corn farming. (from the vintner)
