Bodega Marichal Tannat 2013
The Tannat grape has been transformed by the Uruguayan environment to become the country's prominent variety. Marichal winemaking methods produce a Tannat without any wood or oak treatment resulting in a Tannat that is uniquely approachable with softer, velvety tannins and aromas of blackberries and dark fruit. The wine is a direct expression of its terroir and the climate where it thrives.
Wine EnthusiastStalky, leathery aromas are mulchy and smell animal-like. A saucy-feeling palate and salty red-plum flavors that finish tart and leathery are not appealing.
