Cahors used to be the not so secret region that provided Merlot and Malbec to the Bordeaux producers. Then one day some producers started to their own wines.
That’s why the 2016 Clos La Coutale is one of the best value reds on the market today. It’s a juicy wine, where the Merlot’s cherry fruit and the tarry flavors of the Malbec, blend well together.
The Clos La Coutale is a soft wine, something that the inky dark color hides nicely. Cherries, black plums and blackberry pie flavors are all there, as is the ripe and rich raspberry appeal .
The Coutale is a wine that you can find in most places for less than $16, and that’s why it’s the WineSiders Wine of the Day.
