Bodega Garzón Tannat Reserva
This bold, full-bodied and tannic wine is a beast that can satisfy the thirstiest of souls.
Bodega Garzón Reserva Tannat is a juicy, full bodied wine. It has a deep, royal purple and aromas reminiscent of red and black fruits such as plums and raspberries with a tinge of spice. It has a great personality in the mouth with ripe tannins and minerality, making it a terroir wine of great identity. Aggressive tannins, accompanied with high acidity can leave you with a nice punch. It has a long, dry and tannic finish. This bottle is ready to drink now, perfect for your upcoming weekend wild night.
Pairing tips: Roasted game meats are the ideal pairing for this Tannat. The most traditional combination is slow-cooked leg of lamb, flavoured with sage, mint, garlic and olive oil. It also pairs beautifully with blue cheese and toasted walnuts.

A full-bodied red with aromas of black cherries, blackcurrants, violets and black licorice. Tannic and chewy with a firm core of dark fruit. Try from 2023."
A ruby color and spicy plum and berry aromas open this medium-bodied Tannat, with briny hints of ocean air and seashell chiming in. Lightly herbal flavors of plum and cassis are ever so slightly green, while this is smacking and intense on a juicy finish."
