Tannat Paso Robles 700X461

Tannat, the Dark Prince of Paso Robles Wine

"Big and tannic, yet smoky and smooth, Tannat is a grape that attracts both the hedonistic and intellectual wine lover. This is especially true on California’s Central Coast, where it’s just starting to gain a foothold among more established varieties from Burgundy, Bordeaux and the Rhône." 

Matt Kettmann shines his spotlight on Tannat and highlights Tablas Creek's role in introducing it to California in this Wine Enthusiast article.
