Reviews and Ratings

In general, a Cahors wine from the Southwest of France is at the very least robust and definitely full-bodied. If you like a wine that can match any game dish, the strongest cheeses and the richest beef stews or casseroles, this is the wine for you. The Prieuré De Cénac, Mission (2011) is a blend of Malbec and Merlot, ripe dark fruits, leather, tobacco and cedar spice on the palate - this wine has it all -- just decant it for two hours (at least) prior to serving. - Community Wine Reviews
