2014 Tannat

2014 Tannat
2014 Tannat


Tannat is a remarkable grape varietal. Grown primarily in southwest France in the Madiran appellation, Tannat is known for its unfathomable intensity and depth of color. Lone Madrone Tannat is true to form, as dark as night, blessed with incredible structure and power, yet of fine balance and complexity. Not a wine for the faint of heart. 

Hailing from the steep and rugged hills of the Klau Mine Vineyard in the Adelaida District of west Paso Robles, this, our second vintage of single varietal Tannat, is a stunner.

In some years the Tannat from the Dodd’s vineyard has tar-like, growly and rumbling characteristics that dominate the wine but in years such as 2014 the fruit ferments itself in to a youthfully exuberant blackberries and cream laden nose. The small custom crafted American oak barrels used lend a softening to this historically ultra-tannic variety while also providing a kiss of black pepper.

Supple tannins and a coating, unctuous mouth feel lead the charge across the palate towards a latent and pleasingly tart finish. What a fun juxtaposition of sensations to be had!

I see this going very well with a duck or goose confit and some rustic more acidic cheese like Roquefort just before the main course is served.
