One of our distributors approached us two weeks ago with a proposal. They had bought too much Val de Salis Cabernet and needed to trim their inventory to get in line with company goals. Could we help them out?
Obviously we said yes! For the last two years this has been a staple in our everyday wine lineup!
What's up with the wine?
The Mas family’s Cabernet is just as New World-ish as anything from California, but winemaker Jean-Claude Mas is one of those personalities in the Languedoc for whom winemaking is part of his heritage, after generations have built this large enterprise. For Mas, it’s still just as much a winery as a business, and it’s genuinely a passion, one that he came to after he jumped into his own businesses away from the family. Wine from around the world became a hobby and then he started an organic wine company in England – if you know any of the folks who’ve done that sort of thing, you know they’ve drunk the Kool-aid. He moved to Miami and started importing French foods and wines. Then he worked for years in Bordeaux and in 1995 was lured back home to Pézenas, which you should visit someday because it’s the charming birthplace of France’s greatest playwright, Moliere. The vines at this fourth generation estate start at around 1000 feet in elevation within an eighteen-mile long triangle, sheltered on the north by the Black Mountain, and sloping down to the Mediterranean, with the river Hérault as the eastern boundary.
While the wine may taste as big, ripe and delicious as something from California, you won't find anything from the Golden State that packs this much punch at below $10 per bottle.
So let's get to it people! Happy Tuesday!
