For Malbec World day, here is a nice Malbec from France.
Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim.
On the nose, blueberries, blackcurrants, vanilla, earth, chocolates, dust, spices, herbs, vegetables, black pepper, bell pepper, celery and wet leaves.
Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with plums, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark coffee, pencil lead, vegetables, black pepper, earth, bacon fat, leather, tobacco and green herbs.
Medium finish with soft tannins and tangy cranberries.
This is a very enjoyable Malbec from Cahors, France. Showing nice complexity and mouthfeel. Nice, and well balanced.
Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (3 hours).
Already enjoyable, but will be better in the next 10 years.
Earthy with a new world feel, and gets earthier as it opens up. Not what I expected from a Malbec from this region at all.
Thank you, Wendy for sharing.

Full bodied and tanic but with lifted fruit on the nose and pallet. Reminded me in some subtle ways of a fruitier styled Syrah, with some light floral and blue fruit flavors. Better day 2, and could stand to lay down for a couple of years. Not bad! — 9 days ago
Soft and graceful with fresh ripe red fruits on the nose. Light and pleasant texture, structure and body. Savory gamy vibes and plenty of acid. Delightful. — 9 days ago
