“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

  • Ridge & Furrow Central Coast Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Another Tasting Room Selection; Opens with Butterscotch, Cherries, & Cranberries; then Baking Yeast and Plum; finishes up with Toffee and Raisin and a bit of Leather and Mint; Medium and smooth mouthful. A bit too Fruit forward and a bit too young for my taste Read More

  • Myriad Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Dark plum color. Dark berry fruit on the nose, but, also, slight hint of alcohol. Terrific on the tongue. Typical CS hit of cassis on the tongue. Also, a suggestion of oaky vanilla. Then, almost, some anise. Very subdued tannin makes this on a very easy drinker. Clearly, a New World styled wine, but, also, a big winner. Read More

  • Artesa Cabernet Sauvignon Morisoli-Borges Vineyard Rutherford 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Blackberry preserves and molasses on the nose with red licorice and dark berries and spice. This almost has a dessert quality to it with dark chocolate and espresso notes but this is a dry wine. Rich and spicy and full of acidity and brown sugar notes towards the finish, this is a true treat and ends with a load of dark earth elegance. Read More
