    This was my first experience with Cahors but not Malbec in blends. I identified the ripe plum, licorice and chocolate on the nose. On the palate I got nice acidity but chunky tannins and almost sour cherry. Pepper and earth as well. I hate to say but give me a nice Argentinian Mabec or Bonardo instead.
