My rating 86. Restrained nose with hint of overripe grapes in the begining otherwise well balanced nose. full bodied dry firm wine with fine grained tannins. Good balance. I don't know how wine spectator rated this 90 points . compared to many argentinian wines this is not a good deal $ 13.-

If you're sick of drinking the same old Sangiovese or Primitivo with your pizza, this Malbec with a touch of Merlot makes a great alternative. It's perfectly rustic and earthy with great, food-friendly tannins and a dose of wild Mediterranean flavor.

Astonishing elegance, red fruit with spicy overtones. A well-constructed wine. Clos La Coutale can be drunk young thanks to its good fruit, but has great aging potential, between 10-20 years.

#76 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009 90 Points - Wine Spectator "Big, rich and darkly colored, these are the descriptors for the best red wines from the Cahors district of southwest France. The leading grape is Malbec (that’s right, there was Malbec before Argentina) and now a small group of quality-oriented producers is pursuing a higher profile for Malbec in its homeland. Tannat and Merlot can also used in these blends. Besides an array of dark fruit flavors, the following wines from Cahors offer plenty of muscle and dense structures. They beg to be drunk with a juicy rib-eye or a roasted leg of lamb. There’s a good sense of elegance to the well-defined, concentrated flavors of dark cherry, blackberry and plum, followed by notes of sage, dark chocolate and tobacco leaf on the long, powerful finish. Drink now. "

Winemaker's Notes:

Clos de Coutale is a rare beast; a Cahors which combines a noble and tannic<br/>history with modern, fruity accesibility, achieved by blending the indigenous<br/>Auxerrois grape (better known as Malbec)with the more familiar Merlot. This<br/>wine succeeds because it maintains something of the classic Cahors rigour but<br/>adds an attractive almost velvety texture. <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
