2016 Château Lacapelle Cabanac, France, Cahors, Wine Review

Vintage: 
2015
Score:

Grade: 
B+

This is 80% Malbec and 20% Merlot from southwest France.  Purple in color, ruby swirls.  The nose is dusty with plums.  Some cherries come out later.  On the palate, this is a bit reticent.  Some cherries.  Firm tannins.  This could use a few years of cellaring.  Good acidity. Would work well with food especially heavier dishes.
