A mid-priced, easy to drink Cabernet from France
Les Piliers Cabernet Sauvignon is produced by Famille Gassier, located in the southern region of the Rhone Valley. Winemaker Michel Gassier takes pride in creating wines that reflect the nuances of the land and the personalities of the people that make each bottle. The old vine grapes used to make this wine are hand-picked and made from 100% Cabernet and is sustainably farmed.
In the glass, the color is a deep ruby. The liquid coats the glass with long,lingering legs. On the nose, there are aromas of black cherry and spice. Tasting the wine, there is more black cherry and plum. It has a touch of acidity but not as much as you would expect. The finish is slightly tart, long and very dry.
A full-bodied, food-friendly wine, it's easy to drink and would pair well with a number of beef dishes including Beef Bourguignon.
