2021 Inkblot Tannat

Originating in the southwest region of France, this varietal is notable for its high tannin levels, raspberry aromas, and dark color. Known as the "national grape" of Uruguay, this varietal has slowly crept into the U.S. with plantings in Virginia and now seeing an increase in California. The 5 acre vineyard used for this bottling has found a friendly foothold in the hilly southeastern edge of Lodi. The red gravely loam soil in this area provides excellent drainage for this water adverse varietal.

Tasting Notes
Deep purple in the glass, aromas of raspberry, marshmallow and brioche bread stand out. Staining the palate with a rich, concentrated mouthfeel, flavors of blackberry jam, plum and spice spill across the lasting, fruit-forward finish.
