95% Malbec, 5% Tannat blend from the Cahors region of southwest France. Dark, brooding color. Medium-bodied with lots of plum, cherry, blackberry, moderate tannins, black pepper spice and a nice texture. Bright fruit up front, the finish had a lot of complexity showcasing sandalwood, crushed stones, and scorched earth notes. Not a hint of bell pepper in this one! Farmed with organic practices.
