Suburban Fracas 2020 Lodi Tannat
Tannat is a grape that needs an extra scuffle in the tank to extract its dark color and tannins.
The skin is so thick that the winery staff has to get down and dirty to wrangle the mighty Tannat, so we bleed the tank to increase skin contact during fermentation. This high-intensity varietal offers a deep, fruity nose of plum, blueberry and cherry, followed by meaty and toasted oak notes. The tannic structure is pronounced in the mouth. This exuberant wine will coat your teeth and gums forever, well, maybe not quite forever, but its dense, fleshy, intense personality will leave a lasting impression.
