El Capricho, Aguará Special Reserve Tannat 2018, Durazno, Uruguay
Tasting Note: A substantial tannat with a good mixture of black fruit and leathery notes.
Deep-intensity ruby in color with some garnet around the edges, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of blackberry, leather, cassis, dried red cherry, raspberry and dried mushroom.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied tannat has medium-intensity, black-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and ripe, medium-plus tannin ultimately completing with a round, medium finish.
The wine has some complexity.
Great to pair with grilled meats or sausages.
Bottle Note: Few have seen him; he is the largest and wisest fox of them all. Aguará Guazú inhabits our land, but is rarely seen. Our Aguará is a tannat that embodies the spirit of this fox, standing out for it superb and mysterious singularity. We invite you to enjoy this limited edition of 2,000 bottles, unique and unrepeatable.
