Chateau du Cedre 2007

Well they say “the black wine of Cahors”, and in a somewhat surprising turn of events, this wine is black.  A blend of 90% malbec, 5% merlot and 5% tannat, the aroma is a complex, with notes of herbs, spices, dark fruits and twigs.  The palate shows its oak ageing (20 to 22 months in a mixture of new and old oak) but this is offset by quite pronounced persistence of dark fruit flavours and spices.  This is a good wine, particularly for its modest price.  87 points.

Abv: 13.5%
Price: $22
