A clean, elegant expression of pure varietal Malbec, aged in concrete. After a decade plus the fruit is still bright and intense, a candy shop of licorice and sweet black cherries and berries. This deliciousness carries through on the long finish which also adds mineral character with some lingering dry tannin. Pretty darned good Cahors that shows oak is not always necessary to produce an age-worthy and world-class wine.

$30 is a WOW! Aged in cement. “In addition to the tannins having been sanded down to a finer grain, the wine is also refreshingly free of any dirty, funky notes that often plague traditional Cahors wines.” - Ian Cauble

An amazing difference with the food (pork cheek + celeriac + funghi). Prior to the food, I didn’t like this wine at all. But paired, it’s really great. The tannins are tamed.
