Domaine de Lavaur, Cahors, Cuvee Tradition 2016
GRAPES: 100% Malbec
TASTING NOTES: There’s so much to love about this Malbec -- it’s fruity, expressive, and easy to enjoy. Upon pouring, you’ll immediately notice aromas of strawberry fig newtons wafting out of the glass, followed by raspberry jam and toasted cinnamon. There’s just a dash of something earthy, like leather boots crunching against gravel. On the palate, you’re met with zippy, bright acidity. This wine knows how to say “hello”! Give this wine a bit of time to open up in your glass, or pour it into a decanted before enjoying.
Our favorite pairing with Domaine de Lavaur, Cahors, Cuvee Tradition 2016 - pepper grilled steak or a juicy burger.
