“King of the Red Wine Grapes.” The colonizer of the vineyards, pushing native wine grapes into its shadows. The Cabernet Sauvignon is wildly popular in wine regions throughout both the Old World and New World. Its most intimate roots trace back to the Bordeaux Wine Region in Southern France.

For an avid wine drinker, some major elements of the Cabernet Sauvignon are worth noting. The most distinctive element of Cabernet Sauvignon is its black currant aroma, which is present in all its wines worldwide.

Cabernet Sauvignon on Snooth

  • Chateau Bonnet Bordeaux Rouge 2014

    Snoothrank:

    The Bonnet Rouge (Lurton stable, as Hugh Johnson might put it) is a very decent, mass produced Bordeaux A. C. - there is spicy blackberry and perhaps sweet plum on the nose, and following entry, the wine has sweet cherry, cedar plank and mild lignin (oak). Rich and quite satisfying for regular A. C. - one of the best for the price, methinks. Ig... Read More

  • Ck Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

    Snoothrank:

    It's a rare case I buy a big 1,5L bottle just to get stoned... and here we go: on one hand it's a disgusting sour smell, but wine seems to be very much drinkable on another hand. Basically you get what you pay for. 1 hour of decanting does the magic, but this still completely ruins the idea of getting drunk because wine is only 13,6% and decanti... Read More

  • Groth Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Napa Valley 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Very nice wine. Dark fruitcurrants, blueberry, black plum. Some roughness mid-palate that would suggest coffee or tobacco, but, certainly, none of those flavors. Nice, side-of-the-tongue acid tartness. Firm tannin, but, again, nothing to discourage one from drinking now. Read More

  • Myriad Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Nice, mouth-filling wine. Lots of dark fruitblackberry, blueberry, sloe. Im definitely not getting the cassis that I see in a lot of Napa Cabs. A little jammy.. Very sedate tannin, in my opinion. Nice acidic piquancy subdues the jammy observation. Read More
