2017 Estate Tannat

Known for tannic structure and rustic flavor, Tannat, originally from Southwest France, has flourished in Paso Robles. Ripe strawberries and lavender are infused with notes of boysenberry and cassis. Firm tannins and bright acidity offer a pinch of astringency, a welcomed pivot from finesse-driven wines. The finish is taut and quenching, arriving with savory gusto.

2017 Estate Tannat
Winemaker Notes
With only one acre planted of Tannat in RBZ Vineyards, this wine comes in as one of our smallest production runs, with only 121 cases produced. After fermenting in stainless steel, it was aged in French oak for 18 months. The final blend is comprised of about 60% new, medium toasted French oak, which helps add spice to the nose. Neutral French oak barrels are used on the rest of the blend in order to maintain varietal characteristic unique to this inky-dark and tannic wine. Enjoy now or cellar through 2028.
