Boo... we had to go all the way to our off-site tasting location to try this dud from Moore Brothers. The only thing true about Greg Moore's description of this wine was it's deep, dark color--otherwise we had a bretty/spoiled element on the nose and the tannins were way too harsh.
Still, it wasn't undrinkable, and we weren't going to do anything drastic like throw it down the sink or anything. After getting some air it got a little more bearable, but definitely not up to Moore Brothers' usual high standards. Maybe you'll have better luck with your bottle.
2005 Chateau Les Hauts d'Aglan Cahors
$15 special offer/$17 otherwise
"This incredible $15 wine is better than many 2005 Bordeaux I have tasted. So I hope you don't order it just because it's made from Auxerrois, as Malbec was known in the southwest of France long before there was an Argentina. Malbec is the ingredient, not the wine. Better that Château les Hauts d'Aglan 2005 makes you happy because it's a compelling, succulent wine - nearly black, with muscled concentration, and focused sweet black fruit, framed by ripe smooth tannins." --Greg Moore
