Uruguay > Juanico
The Don Pascual winery is located in the Juanicó region just an hours drive north of the beautiful port city of Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay, South America.
This is the home of Don Pascual, Uruguay's most respected brand producing a range of high quality wines using traditional methods combined ...
First, Chile started making shockingly good Cabernet. Then, Argentina came in with their super affordable and oh, so tasty, Malbecs. Next up? Uruguay is going to rock the world with their Tannats! So, Tannat is a grape (again that came from France) with super thick skins that makes deep, dark and delicious reds. They're full of tannins and until recently, they were too intense to drink without decades of aging. Luckily, modern winemaking techniques have solved these problems and the folks in Uruguay are cranking out great wine at unbelievably low prices. You gotta try these dark yet fruit-filled wines!

Nariz: Aroma a brea, tinta y regaliz sobre fondo de mermelada de frutas como el higo y la ciruela negra.
Boca: Seco, muy armónico con taninos sedosos y civilizados. Estructura poderosa pero cortés, largo final sobre el eco de las frutas del bosque especialmente moras.
Color: Dark ruby to garnet resonances
Nose: Aroma of tar, ink and licorice on bottom of fruit jam and fig and black plum.
