International Malbec Day: What’s in the glass tonight April 18th

Ch Bovila Malbec 2011

Off Topic: Ch. Bovila Malbec Cahors 2011 – $$

The day after, actually…

I went to an instore tasting of Malbecs, mostly out of Argentina. But this Cahors stood out. I had read about the appellation in a previous issue of Decanter, and thought I should drink a wine from the home of the grape. With porterhouse steak.

Inky red-violet. 14%. Fragrant. Muscular. Leggy.

Smooth in the mouth. Lots of fruit. Dense and tannic and large. Full ripe plums and redcurrants and spice, pencil shavings and dark chocolate. V Nice.

VG 4

This wine was awarded Silver at the Decanter World Wine Awards.
