Clos La Coutale 2008, Cahors, France - $13.75

This red French wine is a blend of 80% Malbec and 20% Merlot. It retails for $13.75/bottle at the Austin Wine Merchant, and is imported by Kermit Lynch (one of my faves!). Past vintages have been rated 88 to 90 points by Wine Spectator.

Aroma - black fruit, a little hot
Taste - blackberries, tobacco, moderate tannins

I like this wine - it's definitely nice for the price, and not your run-of-the-mill Malbec!
