Clos La Coutale Cahors 2014, France 

My Rating 81 Points.   

Price $16.
Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim and medium intensity.

Nose of cherries, cranberries, red currants, oak, smoke, vegetables, herbs, bell pepper, peppercorn, spices, green beans, earth and black pepper.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Tart on the attack and dry on the palate with cranberries, strawberries, wood, licorice, earth, forest floor, green vegetables, graphite, black pepper and spices.

Medium finish with soft tannins and tart cranberries.

This French Malbec is unbalanced with mild complexity. Drinkable by itself, but better with food.

Nothing special here. Earthy and funky. Not my style.

A blend of 80% Malbec and 20% Merlot.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
