2008 Château de Gaudou Cahors
France does not produce enough Malbec to satisfy the worlds demand, but this Cahors gives Argentina a run for its money. At under ten, this wine over performs; blackberry, dried-blueberry, herbal, tar and earth all on the nose. Very dry in the mouth, but backed with fruit, and nice finish. Very worth picking up several bottles to have around (from Liner & Elsen). It didn't go all that well with my dinner of wonton soup, but I'm thinking it could almost go with guacamole. I dare someone to try it.
