#98 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Wines of 2019
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.

This grows in Uruguay’s coastal hills, where Alejandro Bulgheroni invested in planting more than 1,000 parcels of vines. Working with consulting oenologist Alberto Antonini, the team fermented this wine in cement vats, then aged it in stainless steel and oak uprights. It’s tannat in a bright, spicy, accessible style, with an underlying structure that’s slowly revealed with air. The dark, iron-like tannins gain power as it opens, lending the wine the weight for sautéed calf ’s liver with onions.

For textbook modern Uruguayan Tannat, look no further than this. A ripe black-fruit aroma melds with flowers, while this is smooth and balanced on the palate. Blackberry and spiced plum flavors are lightly touched by oak and peppery spice, with a steady finish that brings this home.
