FAT bastard Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from low-yielding vines grown in the foothills of Pézenas near the revered Minervois appellation in the heart of Languedoc-Roussillon, in the South of France. There, the vines thrive in an ideal environment offering soils and climates
particularly diversified.

Wine Production

The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes pass through the crusher-destemmer and ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. A period of maceration occurs at warmer temperatures in order to achieve a deeper color and softer tannins. After a gentle pressing, the wine is then transferred into stainless steel tanks where it undergoes full malolactic fermentation. Part of this wine is oak-aged before bottling.

Tasting Notes

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.

Food Pairing

Savor this rich Cab alongside grilled rib-eye steaks and decadent chocolate treats.
