Double 93 points and normally $20+! TANNAT -- savvy somms and drinkers are discovering the incredible quality and value to be had - your turn!

SINGULAR Grape, UNIQUE location and DOUBLE 93 POINTS from Decanter and Tim Atkin! Uruguay has established itself as a world-class wine region and their big STAR is Tannat. Bodega Garzon is on a meteoric rise to international stardom, first receiving “New World Winery of The Year'' in 2018 from Wine Enthusiast, and then “Winery of the Year” from Deschorchados Guide, led by renowned Chilean wine critic Patricio Tapia in 2020. Garzon has excelled in crafting exceptionally delicious Tannat that is velvety in texture with lovely dark fruit qualities.

The location is one of the most beautiful places on earth, just miles from the spectacular beach, Punta del Este, with a Francis Mallmann (Google this guy!) restaurant on site, PLUS the world-renowned Alberto Antonini is in charge of winemaking. Alberto has made some of the most legendary wines of Italy and has been called one of the "Top 10 Influential Wine Consultants" by Drinks Business Magazine, and also one of the "Top Winemakers of the World" by Decanter Magazine in 2015. In short, no expenses have been spared and it shows in these incredible wines.

When you consider all of that, $84 a six pack DELIVERED seems like an awfully good deal, right? Do what you can to experience this beauty!

93 Decanter -
The focus here, as it is with all of the Garzon wines, is on fruit expression and terroir rather than wood. It's a wonderfully stylish expression of the variety that handles its alcohol well, showing flavours of bramble and blackberry with darker liquorice, fine-grained tannins and very subtle vanilla spice. Drinking Window 2021 - 2025.
92 Wine & Spirits -
?Germ?n Bruzzone ferments this tannat in cement, then ages it in a mix of French oak barrels and casks, creating a clean, austerely tannic red that lightens up and feels coastal in the end. It?s frisky with turmeric and green-peppercorn scents, lasting on meaty dark fruit. Structured and savory, this will age well over the next several years, or decant it now for a salad of duck confit.?
92 James Suckling -
Dark berries with blanched almonds and violets on the nose. Medium to full body. Fine, integrated tannins and a silky texture. Lovely length and juiciness. Drink or hold.
90 Wine Enthusiast -
A ripe blackberry aroma mixes with a touch of saline on the nose. The palate of this Tannat from a benchmark vintage is ripe and full in feel. Blackberry jam and spice flavors are ripe and satisfying, while this is warm and complete on the finish.
