Have had this wine numerous times but trying it at 18 was a #realwow. Still fresh; not fading. #Cahors

Ripe blackberry, herbs, hints of leather, very smooth and medium-light with ripe red and black fruits. First experience with any aged Malbec, let alone Cahors. Worth cellaring a few given great qpr.
