Clos La Coutale 2007 wine review by (PB)

This wine from the Cahors is 80% Malbec and 20% Merlot. Ithas a young purple hue with a nice dark berry nose with tar, spice and cherry notes.

Palate--steely with nice berry foundation, tasty fruit, integrated, drinking really well, and finishes well. This wine was a Wine Spectator top 100 (#76) I think.

At $16, it's a nice wine so raise a glass.

I had this with Thanksgiving dinner. Turkey on the grill with herbs of my wife's recipe tucked under the skin.
The smoke and herbs went extraordinarily well with this excellent value Cahors. Wish I could find more!
