Community Tasting Note

    April 9, 2019 - Well, this is one of those bottles I had no intention of sitting on for so long, but that side-by-side Cahors tasting I had in mind upon purchasing this nearly 10 yrs. ago never quite materialized, so here we are at lunch with Mexican leftovers and what I believe to be the last of those mixed Cahors bottles.

    Rubber cork. $12 bottle. Ruh roh. Well, you know, it's pretty dense coloring here still that's nearly opaque with ruby edges. Aromas of dark fruits, graphite, crushed rocks, and chalk. Definitely got that rocky, minerally, almost medicinal, vibe going. Medium(+) body, medium acid, medium(-) finish, with flavors of dark fruits and minerals. Not too contemplative or expressive, but hey, it's not dead, so there's that. I wouldn't waste a nice steak on this wine, but red meat is probably the call, so I'd suggest beef stew, beef burritos, burgers, or lamb for the pairing.
