Beautiful Cahors that is an absolute bargain. Nice bridge between old world and new. Deep purple hued in the glass. Aromas of dates, prune,plum and chai spice. Elegant and sturdy, this wine has layers of fine ripe tannins, lively on attack and soft on the finish. Dry blackfruits replay on the palate with a nice tingle of slate like minerality. the addition of Merlot works well rounding out the Malbec, BBQ red meats or barley risotto with black truffle, Tasted Mar '12
