Tasting Notes:

A bold, spicy red wine that will remind you of chomping into a blackberry/vanilla tart. The Tannat grape gives it power and depth, the Merlot makes it smooth and silky.

Food Pairing Tips:

The national pastime in Uruguay is grilling; that pretty much says it all. Pair with a juicy ribeye, pork chop and lamb! YUM.
