Pigmentum Malbec Cahors 2005

Member Review by budsol:

French Malbec, the staple of Cahors has been around for hundreds of years, albeit as the cheapest wine on the menu but it has taken Argentinian producers to popularize this very distinctive varietal in America. For under $10 this Cahors is remarkable and has proven popular with dinner companions. Vigouroux is very well known in the area not a low-cost producer. From a cost benefit standpoint I would rate it highly.

Black as a night, with a garnet glimmer at the edges. Aromas of black cherries and wet stones continue on the palate, where additional notes of mulberry, star anise and minerals emerge. Full-bodied and mouth coating, with beautifully integrated tannis that will allow this dark beauty several years of positive evolution. Classic Cahors.

Full-bodied and densely packed with flavors of dark plum and berry, with hints of smoke. Mineral and mocha fill the tannic finish. Best from 2009 through 2012.

For 2000 years, the Malbec grape has been grown in the Cahors region of France. It is usually deeply colored, hence the name Pigmentum, meaning ldquo;thing that gives color.rdquo; Sturdy and aggressive, with a little of that gamey wildness that Old World fans find so alluring. Enjoy this delicious wine with hamburgers, sausages or hard cheese.
