Bodega Pizzorno Don Prospero Tannat 2011 – 14.57 – Tannat is to Uruguay as Malbec is to Argentina, or even Shiraz to Australia. It produces wines that are generally high in tannin and acidity. Uruguayan examples are usually softer, and this from Pizzorno is medium bodied, savory and ripe with forest fruits and plums. Serve with grilled lamb cutlets. This has been a hit at East End Wines since its debut.
