Domaine Monte De Luz Carquera Tannat 2007 Uruguay

Domaine Monte De Luz Carquera Tannat 2007... Uruguay and Tannat... two firsts for me, but I was pleasantly surprised. Dark ruby/violet in color and full bodied, this 100% tannat is juicy and full of aromas like plums, blackberries and smoky tar, laden with flavors of spice and jam... soft and lush, with smooth tannins. It's a great deal in the $8 range. Paired really well with an Italian prosciutto, mozzarella, tomato, arugula and red peppers on 7-grain roll with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

How cool is it that a wine made from one of the most tannic grapes in the world can go wonderfull with a light-ish Italian-style sandwich.
