Cats, they seem to be showing up everywhere. And now they are on bottles of fine wines from the Caaaaaat Collection, a delicious red and a rosé with the former being from the heady red wine producing region of southwestern France and the latter from from the sun-filled region of the South of France in picture perfect Provence.

The red wine, dubbed Karaté Caaaaaat, is an organic wine to which sulfates have not been added and is made with 99% Merlot and 1% of Cabernet France to round out the flavor. The vine plants grow in the clay-limestone soil of the early Miocene period in the heart of the highly gastronomic region of Gascony. The deep purple color for the wine promises a powerful and fruity taste.

Meanwhile the Caaaaaat rosé wine is also organic with floral notes evoking summer. A blend of the traditional grape varieties of Provence imparts upon this wine all of its savors. Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Grenache, Tibouren and Syrah come together to offer a powerful taste of Provence. We also enjoyed the lively labels, our cats enjoyed looking at them, too.
