Of all the grapes I encountered in Argentina, the one that seemed to make the least sense was Tannat.
As it is, Argentina's wine industry is built around two cast-off red grapes, Malbec and Bonarda (Charbono) and one (Torrontés) that is unique to Argentina.
Several winemakers showed me samples of their Tannats, which are used in blends, either with grapes such as the ubiquitous Malbec, or with Cabernet.
