Dark purple in the glass, slightly clinging color. Full nose of baked plums and graphite (some Merlot in the mix?). Firm tannins introduce a palate of dark fruit, toasted pie crust, and graphite. Long dusty finish with tannins present throughout. A traditional, Old World Cahors, not to be confused with their more fruit forward Vin de France Malbec. Demands rich Mediterranean or similar cuisine.

Opened up as we drank it for Bastille day at Petite Louis. Was a good across the board choice since many had different proteins etc
