A very nice, approachable bottle of Cahors. Lots of blackberry, black cherry, anise, and floral notes on the nose. Medium-full bodied with medium acidity and tannins and a long finish, it's much more crowd-friendly than many other from the region. Very tasty and a terrific value, plus a fun introduction for those who think malbec is strictly Argentinian. Tasted April 2013.

Very approachable aromas of blackberry, ripe plum and a hint if anise. The palate veers to dark cherry. Medium-full bodied, medium acidity and some mildly-grippy tannins. Nice concentration and length.

Ripe, approachable and richly fruited Cahors, without veering into over-ripeness. Dark berry fruits dominate the flavour profile with no oak noted. Solid structure, balanced acidity, solid finish. Very good wine and thoroughly enjoyable. Fine value indeed. Tasted April 2013.
