Not a native of the Languedoc, this juicy dark red shows just how well Cabernet Sauvignon can ripen here. It's from a century old, family domaine, close to Carcassonne. Enjoy deep, crunchy cassis fruit with an echo of wild herbs and smoky spice.

Beyond the Label
Silky ripe cassis fruit, freshness and herbal notes
This is a ripe and tangy red from a family estate deep in the heart of Cathar country. This is a wild landscape, dotted with ancient castle ruins, perched impossibly high on top of craggy hillsides. In 1919, Joseph Cases founded Domaine Saint Martin, close to Carcassonne and the Corbières mountains, using profits he made from selling matches to Spain. He chose an idyllic site for his vineyards. Surrounded by pines, holm oaks, almond trees, cistus and broom, it's a fragrant landscape. It enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate and has proved perfect for Cabernet, as well as other non-native varietals. Third generation Henry Cases made this intense red in their 100th anniversary year. Crunchy cassis and wild herbs, it's great for grilled meats.
"Appealing deep crunchy cassis, wild herb and smoky liquorice notes. Try Cabernet from the Languedoc"
