Agreed. IMHO, this wine has seen better days.

Domaine du Château Larroque

Terrific MB value 14. Cved. Garnet color and floral yet earthy nose despite the young age. Lively texture and long finish. Great pairing with Andrew’s steak. — 8 days ago

Mon Adour Madiran Tannat Blend 2014

Smokey bbq meat and black cherry aromas. Black currant, blackberries, charcoal, mint, and earthy notes on the palate. Would recommend drinking with a hearty meal or cheese platter. I love these rustic old world wines. 70% Tannat, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. — a month ago

Chaos Cahors Red Blend

Almost effervescent, very drinkable, light body, but also complex and lots of flavor. Smells like a kalamata olive. Would drink again. — an hour ago

Château de Hauterive

Chemin de Compostelle Cahors Malbec Blend
