Black berry fruit, charred meat, embers with an irony minerality. Beautifully balanced at the moment.

Excellent $23 wine again, impeccable balance, great elegance to the palate. Elderberries and plum with woods and tilled earth to the front, well-balanced alcohol and acidity. Excellent terrior wine and value

89' Magnum. Funk town for sure however it is most definetly less freaky then the newer vintages of Cahors that I've tried in the past. Meaty, Musty and Mature. If it was an option I'd have this with some Morrocan food.

Nice fruit. I get some floral notes both on the nose & palate. Drinking well right now.
