2021 Garzon Tannat

New Vintage just arrived!

2021 Garzon Tannat Reserva...$15.99 / 750ml
Tannat is the grape -- Product of Uruguay
This selection is the winery’s flagship and one of the greatest values you can find in the wine market today. The 2021 follows in a line of exceptional releases, this vintage heady with blackberry freshness and silken tannins with a road-tar scent that only adds to the wine’s dark beauty. Yona Benjamin of NYC’s Pure Wine responded to its “delicious strawberry flavor” and, noting the price, said “It’s better than many Bordeaux that are much more expensive.”
Rated 93/100 Wine and Spirits Magazine
Rich but fresh on the nose with a hint of cigar box to the blackberries, dark cherries and roasted spices. Medium- to full-bodied on the palate with firm, lightly chewy tannins and a juicy, flavorful center palate. Pretty long in the finish. Needs a year or two to let the tannins soften more. Try in 2025.
Rated 92/100 James Suckling
