Clos la Coutale Malbec Cahors France Red Dry 2006

Member Review by InWineTruth:

Opaque dark plum hue, aromas of black plums and dark berries; fleshy palate notes of boysenberry pie, black plums, chocolate and tobacco. Rich and supple with a lingering, integrated finish. A terrific value for non-Argentine Malbec.

The Clos La Coutale, a 60 hectares estate spreads over a stretch of land on the alluvial floor of the valley amid the meanders of the river Lot. Its soil is particulary suitable for vines, for it contains gravels, silicates and limestone clays. Because of the lie of the land, facing south-west, the estate is sheltered from the cold winds that blow from the "Causse" region (an upland plateau), and consequently it enjoys a micro-climate which ensures that the vines and their fruit ripen fully early in the season. The vine-plants belong to the two types that are traditionnaly used in the making of the Cahors wine : COT or MALBEC. This is the basic vin-plant, 80%. Its round grapes, their thick skin, rich in colouring matter and in tanin, lend character to this laying-down wine. Merlot. Up to 20%, it tones down the youthful hardness of Cahors wine, and it improves the bouquet. Read less

I like this Malbec at this price point. Blended with 20% Merlot. It's nice when you want something more old world style, and not a fruit bomb from Mendoza. :)
