Wine Of The Week – Finca Las Moras Reserva Tannat, Argentina

Finca Las Moras Reserva Tannat - the wine detective

Finca Las Moras Reserva Tannat 2013

Tannat is usually used as a constituent of various Southern-French blends. It is rarely seen outside of France as a single-varietal wine, but it has found a home in Argentina, where it is made in an up-front and fruit-driven style. It produces a medium to full-bodied red wine with enticing notes of chocolate, mint and blackberries which are complemented on the palate by spicy oak and hints of vanilla.

The Finca Las Moras Tannat is from the San Juan region. It offers great fruit aromas and flavours. Open an hour before serving to fully enjoy this wine. It is an ideal accompaniment to robust meat dishes. You can cellar this wine for 3 to 5 years.

Shelve Price: $12.99 to $13.50
