Clos Triguedina Cahors Prince Probus 2000

Member Review by dmcker:

The Trindadina Probus is a wine that I would guess more people might like than the New Black Wine I referred to before. A bit more approachable and 'modern', though strangely enough it's 100% malbec (the local term they use is Auxerrois), while the Black Wine is an 80% malbec, 15% Merlot, 5% Tannat blend. Cardinal red with purple and a brilliant sheen to look at. An elegant punch in the nose of roast coffee, spice and sweet fruit, with both rich strength and exotic delicacy. A boldly complex palate, with strongly concentrated ripe berries and firm yet smooth tannins. Bold is the theme in flavor and style, with a little too much oak right now, although the structure is good enough that this should integrate well with more age.
