Home Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2010

28% Tannat, 24% Tempranillo, 24% Syrah, 22% Grenache, and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon (so beyond weird why Delectable calls this Cabernet Sauvignon??), this “Home Vineyard” was always the most highly-allocated and difficult to buy of Hank’s wines, but he was always kind enough to sell me 2-3 or more bottles, so huge kudos to @Hank Beckmeyer for that!!

Color is still quite purple/red, I’m getting aromatics that suggest Tannat/Tempranillo mostly, not Syrah/Grenache, shows a fair degree of ripeness (14.3% ABV, different from many of the post-2011 cuvées), tannins are smooth, long finish, I’ve always loved this particular LCF red wine!!

RPF Reserva Personal de la Familia Progreso Tannat 2013

This is only the second Tannat I’ve ever had and it good but not great. Missing some finer complexity to the wine but I was grateful to find it in the “other reds” section. — a month ago

Château Montus

Cuvée Prestige Madiran Tannat 2000

Het duurt ruim 23 jaar, maar het is het wachten dubbel en dwars waard. Eindelijk zijn de tannines zacht en geïntegreerd. Samen met cassis en pruimen is het dan een heerlijke, flinke wijn. — 5 months ago

The Owl & The Dust Devil Remolinos Vineyard Malbec Blend

Bought this just to “try” with several friends at a home get together of several grilled meats; pork, beef and lamb “pieces”. The wine seemed to work nicely with all. Deep, strong hints of fruit and good tannin; I was a bit surprised because of the blends but found it to be a keeper. It has become one of our favorite wines to bring to others when visiting! Good reviews from all who received it!

Bodega Garzon

Reserva Maldonado Tannat 2021

Inky in color with a short reddish rim.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with mild complexity.

Showing black fruits with wood, earth, light herbs, chocolates, tobacco leaf and peppercorn.

Medium finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a nice and interesting tannant from Uruguay. Smoky, spicy, and feels like a Californian Syrah.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly.

Good by itself or with food.

14% alcohol by volume.
