Château du Cèdre Cahors 2000

External Review by Sam's Wine:

"Pitch black to the eye. On the nose brooding notes of dark fruit. Plums and black cherries on the attack, with blue berries emerging in the mid-palate. Smoky oak and stony earth tones emerge over time--and all is framed by savory flavors of dark chocolate and coffee bean. Wondrously complex, layered with flavor after flavor. Power tempered by grace--a Cahors that display none of the rude nor brutal notes of yesteryears! A connoisseur's wine!"
