Georges Vigouroux Gouleyant Cahors 2014 Malbec (France), $12.99-$15.99, 87 points, poured an impregnable deep purple/red with a broad clear wine ring and moderately thick legs.
Aromas were more complex than at first they appeared, but dominant earth and olive smells were well garnished with cocoa, licorice, toast, and a floral vibe.
Near full-bodied with fair acidity and dry gripping tannins sported the challenging gauntlet of tasting the aromas beyond the dominant earth and olives, though a bit of tangy pomegranate late palate gave some contrast.
Finished fair on awaking pepper spices, plum, just a hint of mint, and a restrained 12.5% alcohol.
