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.

  • Elementary Cellars Volume I Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012


    Light black fruit, but this is more an Old World wine that a New World fruit forward wine. Some spices and foliage sensations mid- to rear palate. Tannin is completely resolved. If you got 'em. drink 'em. I don't think this wine is falling over the cliff, but I don't thing that additional cellarage is going to yield commensurate benefit. Read More

  • Muckraker Red Field Blend NV


    Pours a thin rust hued cherry color and shows good clarity...after some careful swirling there are many slender legs that form before quickly devolving back into the juice. Aromas that fringe on blueberry, dark cherry, blackberry and slightly alcoholic does need a few minutes to mellow. Flavors are quite nice, showing lots of v... Read More

  • Ravage Cabernet Sauvignon 2018


    This Cab pours an inky dark cherry color...almost black....even stains the inside of the glass if you can believe it! Rich and dark looking for sure.....the aromas are juicy, jammy fruits such as black berry, cherry, currant etc. and slightly boozy initially but smooths out on the nostrils as it warms. Flavors that are semi sweet, fruit forwar... Read More
