Garzon Tannat Reserva 2021

Critical Acclaim: 93 pts Wine & Spirits; 92 pts James Suckling.

Winemaker Tasting Notes: Deep purple in color, this Tannat fresh aromas reminiscent of red and black fruits such as plums and raspberries on a spice-flavored aroma. It has a great personality in mouth. Its ripe tannins and its minerality make it a terroir wine of great identity.

"Garzón farms 175 acres of tannat; 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.”- Wine & Spirits. 

"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."- James Suckling. 

Pairing Recommendation: Roasted game meats are the ideal pairing for this Tannat. The most traditional combination is slowly cooked leg of lamb flavored with sage, mint, garlic and olive oil. It also pairs beautifully with blue cheese and toasted walnuts. 

Varietal: Tannat.
