Description

Tannat wines typically taste of dark red fruit, raspberry and sometimes blueberry is also cited as an outreach flavor type.

Owing to its high tannin levels, Tannat is sometimes touted as having health benefits, although there is little reliable medical sources to support this.  But at Flanigan’s, we hope that does not prevent you from enjoying the entertainment quality of this lovely rich bold tannic wine.

Tannat is associated with the Madiran region of France, but may actually have arisen in the Basque country just the other side of the Pyrenees Mountains from Madiran.
