Garzón Tannat Reserva Uruguay 2015

Tannat is a variety little seen on Australian retail shelves, let alone in its Uruguayan incarnation.  However, this is a good wine, the second Uruguayan wine I have tried recently, and the first review I have posted of a wine from Uruguay after posting on for the better part of ten years.  Deeply coloured, it has restrained aromas of plums and cedar in the background.  The palate is quite tannic, but not overly so, and the fruit is ripe with savoury overtones of blood plums and a balanced finish.  Ready to drink now, this is an enjoyable and well priced wine that could be approached over the next decade.  Rating: Very Good. Abv: 14.5%. Price: $30. Website:
