La Vignerons de Forensic Cabernet Sauvignon Pays d’Oc, France

I hope you all had a good weekend. The Tigers weren’t able to pull it out but the Saints pulled off a great victory Sunday afternoon. WHODAT!?. Hopefully you all were the true winners this weekend because you drank some great vino.

This little Pays d’Oc, or “Country Wine”, is made from a group of winemakers in the Florensac region of Picpoul in the Languedoc Valley. By creating a co-op, the “Vignerons de Florensac” are able to pool together the best grapes in the region to create an excellent quality wine that they can sell for a great price.

I was very impressed with this when I tasted it last week. I think it is a quintessential “everyday” table wine that offers great balance and will please both light and bold wine lovers.

MySomm Tasting Notes: “This has a simple, but attractive nose that expresses aromas of raspberry, dusty cherry, & hints of black pepper and earth. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied, due to being fermented in stainless steel and then aged in used French Oak. Flavors of plum, black cherry, & clove persist on the palate. The tannins are moderate and grippy and the finish is of bright fruit enveloped in a cloak of dusty earth. Drink now and enjoy!”

MySomm Price: $11.90/btl
