TASTING NOTES

Eye: «Cahors Séduction» has a beautiful deep and brilliant garnet red colour.

Nose: Its intense nose of red fruit is dominated by raspberry fragances.

Palate: The entry in mouth is very fruity, characteristic of young Malbec, with the same raspberry notes as the nose. Tannins are mellow on the back palate and develop a clean and strong fruity flavour. The finish is smooth, sweet, almost sugared, and yet firm. Its remarkable fruity intensity claims its

grape variety : Malbec.
