Winemaker's Notes

In France, the local bistro is where folks go to relax, socialize, drink wine and dine in a casual, friendly setting. This Cabernet Sauvignon has all the right qualities of a good bistro wine: it is simple, delicious and pairs well with many foods and flavors. In making this wine, low-yield vines are carefully selected and hand-tended with minimal interference, allowing for the natural ripening of the grapes. This careful attention yields a Cabernet Sauvignon that is rich and full-bodied.

This stylish wine shows bright plum and black currant aromas accompanied by distinctive notes of vanilla. Ripe tannins lead to a long, velvety finish. The different soils of the vineyard sources (clay and limestone in Limoux and gravel in the Gard) add complexity and richness to the wine. Enjoy it paired with tomato-based dishes, hearty pastas, grilled beef tenderloin and hard, aged cheeses.
