Boasting an impressive awards pedigree – including Gilbert & Gaillard gold for this 2018 – Cabalié is the wine to drink after a long day of empire building. Or just a long day at the office. Either way, this sumptuous red hails from the talented Hervé Sabardeil and is made in the image of the local reds that reportedly bolstered Roman soldiers over 2,000 years ago.
Speaking of ancient, the village where Hervé’s Grenache vines grow, Maury, is home to some of France’s oldest vines. These low-yielding plants produce seriously concentrated grapes, which translates to major flavor impact in your glass. And with Hervé’s 2018 already sporting acclaim, we can’t think of a better time to discover its richness for yourself.
Look for intense aromas of herbs and red berries, plus mouthfilling flavors of ripe plums, chocolate and coffee. Sip with BBQ or any rich, full-flavored fare featuring a dark or fruit-based sauce.
