Such a great wine no one knows about on delectable except me and @Chris Shultz .

Nose of dried apricots, fig, pollen, brown sugar. Lime and lemon strands. Minerals and a bazaar like perfume. Something you’d encounter in Morocco. Hints of incense. Unique and complex. Ocean scents but with lots of seaweed underneath. What a palate. Not as round as 15 but with more angles and terrific finesse and white cherries, yellow plum and tangy just ripe apricots. Chewy, dense and concentrated wirh brilliant texture, juiciness and depth. So energetic, clean and balanced and man is this long. A refreshing wine that also is complex and deep. Lemony finish. Wow. Structure to age for a decade or more.

This is an excellent, dense, clean wine. I think I’ve got a little honey pot stashed away of 15. It’s a shame nobody brings in their wine anymore ;), but you can still find a few of their more casual bottlings kicking around from 5-10 years ago.

@Severn Goodwin this is a wine that got killed by tariffs. Pre tarifss was $40, post tariffs it’s not happening. Pray those tariffs get repealed as that’s only way this wine is ever getting back in the country.

Not a typical classic Cahors, bur a great mouthfeel. Plenty of dark fruit, almost well balance, lack of a great finish. A delicious fun wine. Great gift to a winelover. — a day ago

Probably our favorite tannat from SW France yet. Like a really fine BDX without the cost. Dark and brooding. Great with oxtail stew. — 4 hours ago
