A bit funky on the nose but very plummy. Aromas of fresh Italian plums, old wood, dry earth and hints of tarragon and dried sage greet the nose. Smooth and broad on entry, this is almost a bit soft, though the tannins remains fairly abundant and a bit fuzzy in the mouth, adding volume and tactile complexity. There’s a fine, clear, deep core of fruit here, all plums and wild cherry with almost a hint of wild strawberry on the backend where this gains a subtle forest floor tinged layer of funk. falling short on the finish, this stumble with some drying tannins and a lack of persistence to the fruit, though a peppery note does linger. A little simple perhaps, but distinct. 85pts

Purple is Malbec from France where Malbec originated. Cahors is just south of Bordeaux and Chateau Lagrezette has produced exceptional Malbec there for centuries. This particular wine is new for the Chateau and made in a forward style that's extremely appealing. Consulting Enologist Michel Rolland works closely with the estate on this and all of their wines and they are currently an all-new modern winery in Landiech, designed by Jean Nouvel. Grapes are sourced from estate vines averaging 15 years of age and this 100% Malbec is remarkably bright and vibrant. The Wine Spectator called this 2011 "Concentrated dark plum and blackberry flavors are fresh and lively in this full-bodied red. Dark chocolate notes accent the finish. Drink now through 2016." A steal!

Purple is Malbec from France where Malbec originated. Cahors is just south of Bordeaux and Chateau Lagrezette has produced exceptional Malbec there for centuries. This particular wine is new for the Chateau and made in a forward style that's extremely appealing. Consulting Enologist Michel Rolland works closely with the estate on this and all of their wines. Grapes are sourced from estate vines averaging 15 years of age and this 100% Malbec is produced entirely in their all-new modern winery in Landiech, designed by Jean Nouvel. Remarkably bright and vibrant this young red from the outstanding 2011 vintage shows blackberry, black currant, star anise and violet nuances in a soft framework that will continue to develop over the next 2-5 years. A steal!
