Paul Mas Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

I don't get Paul Mas. His wines have been the subject of praise from wine writers over the last couple of years. In fact, my very first blog post was a Paul Mas wine. I didn't like it, and I don't really like this one either.

My brother in law described this wine as "smooth". I guess that makes it good? Frankly, I don't want "smooth" in a Cabernet Sauvignon. I want jagged tannins and piercing fruit. If I wanted smooth I'd go for a Beaujoulais. That's just me - I guess there's nothing wrong with this. Maybe it's miles better than any other Cabernet produced in the Languedoc? Feel free to explain it to me...
