BODEGAS GARZON CABERNET FRANC TANNAT
The greatest wines of the world are produced where a grape varietal finds the ideal conditions to express itself in a natural and authentic way. At Bodega Garzón, we are guided by a philosophy to fully express our unique terroir with wines that are pure, have distinct tension, and a vitality that leads to delicious drinkability.
Bodega Garzón is close to Punta del Este, La Barra, and Jose Ignacio - Uruguayan Paradise at its best with mesmerizing landscapes. Located eleven miles from the Atlantic Ocean, the estate has more than 1,000 small vineyard blocks covering its hillside slopes that benefit from varying microclimates, different levels of humidity, and intense canopy management. These factors allow the vines to develop with maximum exposure to the sun providing rich, expressive fruit. The vineyards are surrounded by a lush forest, rocky soils, boulders, and palm trees.
Of an intense purple colour with violet highlights, this noble varietal has mineral aromas of ripe peppers, spices and fruits of the forest, along with a subtle note of dark chocolate and smoke from select barrels. In the mouth, there are layers of soft tannins, combining prunes and ripe blackberries with fresh notes of eucalyptus and mint, making it delightfully complex.
This elegant red wine is a perfect companion for Mediterranean dishes such as roasted pork ribs on fennel and leeks, braised pork tenderloin baked with baby potatoes with rosemary, or pappardelle with wild mushrooms ragu.

Leathery and cigar box notes.
Full bodied and balanced tannins. Alcohol content apparent on palate.
Best opened and Sampled, and then left for 24 hours - much Smoothie and fruitier on the second tasting
