Cuvée des Vignes Centenaires Cahors Malbec 1998

Lyle Fass

Stunningly deep nose of cassis, tree bark, spice and wild mint. A scene in nature. Plum. Such pure fruit. Also violets. Super floral, but darker flowers. Crushed rocks and wet earth. As classic as it gets. The first growth of Cahors. Palate is silky and textured with amazing depth. Superb sap, power and concentration. Such class and finesse. So refined and elegant. Ripe and substantial tannins and but again so refined. Amazing length. Brilliant wine. Unreal freshness. Sappy and deep. Has the guts to go 35 more years. Profound.

As this opens it gets so velvety, so sappy, so elegant. Just a brilliant bottle.

Reserve High Altitude Malbec 2019

Kinda a dramatic label. Excellent rendering of rocks. Very dark color. Kind of that classic deep maroon of the beefy Malbecs. Smells dense and juicy. Berry danish. Or is that a blueberry 🫐 donut? Flavors are chewy and complex. Spice with a hint bitter skins of a balanced plum. Has plenty of sagebrush and fall dry leaves. Balanced, full bodied and woodsy. This is a very nice Malbec. Maybe it’s the altitude. — 5 days ago

Reserva High Altitude Vineyards Malbec 2018

Cor bem escura e intensa, um bom corpo com lágrimas lentas. Tem um excelente aroma onde o carvalho se destaca, com notas de nozes. Na boca se apresenta intenso e complexo, um ótimo sabor bastante equilibrado, com taninos macios e acidez equilibrada. — 8 days ago

Le Vassal de Mercuès Cahors Malbec 2019

We usually enjoy Argentinian malbecs, so we wanted to try a French version. Some earthiness on the nose, and every bit the 14.5% alcohol content. Lusty and fruity, with a hint of a chocolate liquor...a pure chocolate, not Kahlua, and also the familiar and expected cigar box. Grippy tannins and elegant. Does this go with tonight's pizza? Of course it does. What doesn't? Lol — a day ago

La Roque Cahors Malbec 2017

Light Malbec with a very intense first impression on the palate ... earthy, dark fruits and beetroot. Exquisite acidity. My perfect pairing to a medium rare steak. Could stay a little longer on the tongue. — 2 days ago

Viña Las Perdices

Reserva Malbec 2018

Cor escura e viva, com boa densidade. O aroma ressalta a madeira e frutas escuras. O sabor é bem forte com impressão corpulenta, taninos marcados, acidez destacado e um bom rastro com leve ardência. É um vinho que poderia amadurecer. — 9 days ago

Nice expression of Malbec with floral notes, crushed berry and graphite on the nose and palate. Well balanced with fruit, savory notes, oak and tannin all in good proportion. Dense and plush, good steak wine, added a fruit sweet counter balance to a gamy grass fed rump steak. — a month ago

Pétreo Malbec 2016

A surprising Malbec from Chile.
Nose - typical blueberry vanilla shake, dense, rich, sweet. There’s a hint of cool freshness, a stony minerality but not at the forefront.
The palate is a v. nice surprise.
Quite light, with brilliant juicy freshness. A light & crisp yet present tannic frame, fresh, crunchy blue & red fruit and an energetic flow of juicy acidity. Pure, cool, so fresh.
No plush richness, no jaminess, nothing over cooked. Vibrant, precise, juicy.
After the corked bottle of Gredos Grenache, this proved a delightful match for flanksteak & asparagus.
What a nice surprise!
