About the Winery: When internationally recognized winemaker Paul Hobbs and 4th generation Cahors vintner Bertrand Gabriel Vigouroux decided to work together, they set out to offer a new interpretation of the Malbec of Cahors, melding modernity and tradition. This collaboration between the new and the old world became Crocus wines, a quest to redefine Malbec in its birthplace. Crocus wines take their name from the famed Crocus Sativus flower, prized for producing the spice saffron. The Crocus flower has been grown and harvested in the Cahors region since the 14th century.
Tasting Notes: A malbec with an exquisite Carmine red color. This wine offers a complex blend of aromas: red fruits such as crushed strawberry, raspberry, and blueberry jam, and a touch of dried oregano and sage. The palate is round and fresh, giving flavors of blackberry, juicy black cherry, fresh cracked pepper, and licorice candy with a rich texture and velvety tannins.
