Winemaker's Notes

The grapes are grown and sourced from four single vineyard sites from the Languedoc region in the south of France along the Mediterranean. No oak was used and the wine was bottled without filtration. The Cabernet has fruity notes of black cherry and spice that dance on the nose. Silky on the palate with flavors of blackberries, dark cherry and licorice with a long finish. Enjoy with roasted potatoes, grilled steak, beef stew and firmer cheeses.

Wine Spectator – 87 points, BEST VALUE "Good intensity to the juicy dark plum, berry and appealing herbal flavors. A fine Cabernet from the south of France, with touches of richness on the finish."

Robert Parker's, The Wine Advocate – 87 points "Displays aromas of blackberries... it reveals a black fruit-laced core that is chunky, hugely flavorful, and studded with notes of licorice. This fine value would be at its best if served with a grilled steak."
