A very different beast from Cahors let alone Mendoza, this Loire Malbec is superb. Subdued, chalky, smoky, and spicy. Drunk and enjoyed greatly with steak.

Super funky nose. Palate reveals awesome dark fruit, clay and spice.

Badass Malbec from a favorite Chenin producer. Think this grape is all flesh & flash with no structure? This will slap that thought right off your tongue.
