Bodega Garzón Single Vineyard Tannat 2018
The Tannat of all Tannats in Bodega Garzón.
Bodega Garzón Single Vineyard Tannat has a deep purple colour. This powerful Tannat has an elegant nose, with aromas resembling red fruits, such as cherries and strawberries at first waft. The other flavours of black plums, tobacco, chocolate and spices slowly blossom from within. The full-bodied wine has a juicy and fresh mouth, giving you a pleasant sensation. It has a long and lingering finish, perfectly balanced with a touch of oak.
Aging takes place between 12 to 18 months on the lees in French oak barrels and casks. The vineyard where these beautiful Tannat grows is in a cooler area, compared to other blocks on the estate. The terrain has steep slopes and thin soils with excellent drainage due to the predominance of ballast in the upper layers.
Pairing tips:A wine of great structure, it pairs nicely with regional dishes, such as lamb. Cured cheeses like Parmesan or a duck cassoulet that can showcase the wine’s spicy notes. It also pairs perfectly with traditional French cuisine.

Extremely perfumed with violet and blueberry aromas that follow through to a full body with creamy, refined tannins. Wonderful depth, due to the compact fruit and vertical line of tannins. Black pepper to the dark fruit. Better in two or three years. Try after 2022.”

This is a ripe version of Tannat, with earth and blackberry aromas leading the charge. Toasty dark-fruit flavors benefit from integrated oak, while this tastes peppery on the finish. The palate shows a lot of grip, so it’s best to serve this with meat. Drink through 2025.”
Aromatic, smoky with lots of spice, leather and some tobacco. Solid, peppery, delicious and serious. Polished tannins with lovely texture.”
