2016 Brecon Zinfandel/Tannat

2014 Brecon Tannat

Our inaugural Zin/Tannat in 2014 certainly represented a path less traveled. Or, from a blending perspective, a road rarely taken. Conceived as a “one-off” for the wine club, it has proved remarkably popular and somewhat difficult to replicate. Consider this then a next generation Zin/Tannat or ZN/TN 2.0. It has a certain familiarity to the rich jammy 2014 but with better integration and a whole raft of added features. More spice from the Zin and absolutely fantastic length that lingers oh so long. Very approachable or, keeping the tech analogy, one might say plug in and play, play, play!

Seemingly it’s a rare locale that ripens Tannat to perfection. (Think Uruguay, Paso, and Madiran) Combine this with the hilltop nature of all the component vineyards and  this translates to truly ripe fruit. Not a green or white pepper note to be found. All vineyards except the Glenrose Tannat (8.87%) are headtrained. Each component is distinctly different, bringing nuances to the blend. The Glenrose, for example, exhibits a softer, more feminine touch to what is traditionally perceived as a very masculine grape variety.
