2012 Inky violet color with aromatic leather, earth, black fruit, and a bit of violet aromas. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, fresh and smooth with well integrated tannins with blackberry, plum, black raspberry, graphile flavors underscored by an appealing minerality and a lingering satisfying finish. A steal at $13!

Love this Cahors. Malbec from its true birthplace and with so many facets. Really stellar bottle for the price...

Really dug this. First time I can say that about a Malbec from anywhere in ages. Getting another.

I really want to score this a perfect ten because I've had a series of long days and this was open and ready for me when I arrived home tonight. Not very aromatic, but delicious milk chocolate and sweet tobacco with a creamy mouthfeel.

Pretty darn good Malbec. Rich, earthy and robust, and there is plenty of nice dark fruit within. Aroma is less alcoholic than other Malbecs I've had. The overall presentation is well rounded and finishes without any bite. Very nice.

OK wine, but not 100% to my taste. A bit sweet and jammy. Some nice spice - maybe cinnamon; a little cut grass in the nose. Maureen says, "I like it, not as acidic as some Malbecs."
