Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the more challenging grapes to grow in Southern France and thus I work closely with the growers throughout the region to determine the best growing areas and harvest times. It is a late ripening varietal that needs proper conditions in September to achieve ideal maturation which is essential to produce the wine's soft and rich expression. We begin tasting the berries early in the season to monitor development of sugar, acid and tannins and only when the conditions are ideal, do we begin the harvest.
FAT bastard Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from low-yielding vines grown in the foothills of Pézenas near the revered Minervois appellation in Languedoc-Roussillon.
A beautiful ruby-red color with rich and opulent aromas of black currant, crushed blackberry, cinnamon and pepper spices. A wine with a tightly woven texture, fine grain tannins and a long, persistent finish, this Cabernet Sauvignon is exceptionally expressive, powerful and smooth all at once.
Serve with hearty grilled meats or roasts; complements rich, dark chocolate desserts.
