Drink Great to drink now, but will hold for a few years yet
With its clear, bright, medium cherry red colour and fragrant summer fruit aromas, this wine is unashamedly made for drinking relatively young. The nose is nevertheless unmistakably Cahors, offering red berry and blackcurrant fruit aromas, with subtle notes of cedar, iodine, roasted meat and leather, whilst the palate is delightfully fresh, fruity and full of gentle rustic charm. It combines sweet-sour cherry, raspberry and redcurrant fruit with a touch of meaty savouriness, a twist of black pepper and a sprinkling of mixed herbs, with bright acidity and just the right amount of tea-like tannin holding everything together beautifully. Young Cahors can sometimes be a bit too much like sucking on a pencil, but this one is beautifully light, airy and dangerously easy to drink. It really is rather yummy!

A medium garnet red colour. Whilst at the same time gently herby and really rather floral, it is also abundantly fruity, with delightful redcurrant and bramble aromas, along with secondary notes of spiced orange, blackcurrant leaf, cedar and tobacco. The medium-bodied palate shows real elegance, with a mix of tangy wild strawberry and cherry fruit flavours, a subtle herbiness, supple tannins and juicy acidity. Nothing sticks out, and one could easily drink a glass or two for its own sake, though it is equally good as a food wine. At approaching 9 years of age (all of Garinet's wines are released when ready to drink) it is nicely mature, though it will certainly stay on its plateau for a few years yet. A really delicious, elegant, old-style Cahors.

A deceptively deep, semi-opaque garnet/blood red colour - deceptive, because there is a real charm and semi-mature elegance to this wine. The nose offers a complex array of bramble, cherry and blackcurrant fruit aromas, with tertiary notes of tobacco, forest floor, dessicated orange peel, iodine and polished old wood. There's even a hint of florality in there, which is a rather unusual - though most welcome - quality for Malbec. Even at nearly 12 years of age, the fruit is bright and remarkably fresh on the palate, and whilst the tannins still retain plenty of grip, they combine and meld beautifully with the core of ripe red and black fruit flavours, countered by a delightful cherry kernel sourness and juicy acidity. And whilst it is already balanced, elegant and beginning to age nicely, this is definitely a wine that is yet to reach its absolute peak of maturity. All-in-all, this is classic, old-school Cahors - and a cracking bargain!
