One of the dominant geographical features on the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France are the Montagne Noire – the black mountains. It isn’t just a beautiful view – these mountains are essential to the vineyards of the area, because the mountains actual provide sheltering from weather, allowing for the perfect climate for delicious grapes. The Montagne Noire Cabernet Sauvignon is the perfect beneficiary of those mountains and it shows in this stunning wine.
This Cabernet has dark fruit flavors with cherry and black currant leading on the palate. These fruit flavors are nicely balanced with hints of spice and cedar, with a fabulous finish. This Cabernet is the perfect steak wine and if you are feeling inspired by France, it may pair perfectly with steak au poivre, in fact.
