Deep, dark fruit with dirt and sweet oak scream at you from the glass (which is likely stained by now). The fruit dominates the palate...but not in an obnoxious way...and is tempered by a bit of herbaceousness. The soft tannins keep everything in balance and lead to a long, layered finish.
'17 the project
Our take on a "weird-ass French grape." Chances are, you've never heard of (or had) Tannat before. Traditionally, it's used almost exclusively as a blending grape. We said "screw that!" The wine was aged for nearly 20-months in French oak barrels (following 100% whole-cluster fermentation). The final alcohol content is 14.3% by volume and a total of 47 cases were produced.
