Antisto Malbec-Cahors Georges Vigouroux 2006

Member Review by Tyler Worth:

86 points. This wine’s aroma is somewhat yeasty, with rich, extremely dark fruit tones. There is almost a slight jammy quality to this wine’s fruit, but there is so much dark, slate-like minerality and earthiness to it, that it still feels very rustic. A good spin in the glass reveals some bramble, cigar, and spice box aromas that give the aroma some added definition. The palate is somewhat thin, with a very tight structure. There is a dark, volcanic minerality, with a faint edge of smoky, saltiness reminiscent of grilled meat. This is a restrained wine, and there is a bit of dried black currant and orange peel toward the mid palate and into the finish, but its minerals really drive it, and its firm tannins give it a rugged feeling. Clearly an Old World style, and possibly a wine that could benefit from a few more years of aging, this is a very different take on Malbec than many people know from Argentina.
