Bodegas Carrau 2005 Amat Tannat (Uruguay)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $30
Cherry, leather and sweaty saddle are the opening acts here, followed by intense black earth in the mouth and dense but ripe tannins. A lovely licorice note perfumes the medium finish. Give it a few years.  — W.E.  (6/1/2010)

Bodegas Carrau 2007 Reserva Tannat (Uruguay)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $10
Soupy and baked on the nose, and not that firm or focused. The palate is on the heavy side, with clipped, roasted plum flavors. Rustic and damp, and not doing a lot to push the envelope for Uruguay.  — M.S.  (10/1/2010)

Bodegas Carrau 2008 Reserva Pinot Noir (Uruguay)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $20
Judging by this example, Uruguay might have some potential for the notoriously difficult Pinot Noir grape. There’s a good helping of rusticity here, but also some nice cherry fruit and an appealing earthiness. Drink up.  — W.E.  (6/1/2010)

Bodegas Carrau 2002 De Reserva Tannat (Uruguay)

  1. $13
This basic Tannat is more acceptable than the winery’s higher-priced reserve wine simply because it’s fruity, short and precise. Of course, it’s tannic and rough, but that’s the nature of the grape and country of origin.  — M.S.  (11/1/2006)
