Viña Progreso Revolution Tannat 2018

Canelones, Uruguay

$23.75 / each

Description:

Sassy and vibrant aren't typical descriptions you'll see for the wines of Uruguay. This fabulous find definitely defies the stereotype, opening with delicate floral aromas and showing a whole new side of the Tannat grape. Grown in Rio de La Plata which is located in the appellation of Canelones, this bottling is much lighter and more delicate in style than most examples of Tannat, and features lusty raspberry and red plum fruit on the bright, acid-driven palate.
