“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

  • Cave de Saumur 09 Lieu Dit les Vignoles Saumur Champigny Cabernet Sauvignon France 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Cabernet Franc. Bright garnet hue, aromas of red stone fruits and violets; flavor notes of black raspberries and black currants, with a floral tone on tart acid and sweet wood. Good balance and moderate length, but a terrific red wine value. Read More

  • Malk Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District 2007

    Snoothrank:

    The 2007 Malk Cabernet is a stunning example of Stags Leap! Its rich velvety texture and decadent aromas make it a perfect addition to any evening. Other reviewers have described the notes with such vivid detail from vanilla bean ice cream to tobacco to dripping plums, I feel any descriptions I could muster would be a disservice comparatively. ...

  • Our Daily Red Red Blend California 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This is a decent table wine. It's simple, not much going on with tannins/acidity. It's light tasting. Kind of one dimensional. But it's certainly not bad at all. This is the kind of wine that someone who's new to wine or who is a white wine lover will enjoy.I paid $5.39 for it at TotalWine, and that price is about right. $7 would have been too m... Read More

  • James Cole Cabernet Sauvignon 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Beautiful full-bodied wine with balanced tanins, and the mouth-feel I look for in Napa. On par with any of the Stag's Leap District Cabs. Read More

  • Aurelio Montes Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Little murky on the nose off a pop n' pour, with a good amount of soil and some funk showing along with red fruits. This blew off after 15-20 minutes, and the soil gradually gave way to the red fruits. A pleasant wine, above average but well short of outstanding. Read More

  • Malk Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This is a sensational wine at a great value. We love serving this rare, small production little gem to friends who always perk up to ask what are we serving and how can they find it. You don't flirt with this wine, you fall in love. Read More

  • Mcmanis Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon California 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet, dark fruit aroma. A little spicy, not very hot and barely tannic at all. A nice sipping wine. Read More
