Domaine Cosse Maisonneuve, Solis Cahors 2011, France
Tasting Note: A Cahors that presents malbec in a reserved, dry, slightly-dusty style that is rooted in the old world.
Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of blackberry, crushed-dried violet blossom, black cherry, forest floor and black olive.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied Cahors has medium-intensity black-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and slightly-velvety, medium-plus tannin.
The wine has a supple midpalate with some notes of complexity that develop the longer you swirl the wine in your glass.
I paired with pulled pork and the dryness of the wine complimented the sweetness of the pork.
