Yep, this is one of Kermit’s classic Languedoc country quaffers: dark, juicy, charmingly rustic, and, best of all, affordable. I would like to stop there, but my strange compulsion to divulge in-depth terroir specifics means you’ll have to bear with me. Cabrières is one of the Languedoc’s most exciting crus, and certainly its most underrated. Its forested slopes rise hundreds of meters above sea level, where nights are fresh and cooling winds are a constant. Equally fascinating is the schist soil here—flaky dark stones litter every inch. They provide this medium-bodied red with a crunchy mineral backbone and dusty tannins. Now, resume quaffing! –Anthony Lynch
