“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.

  • Peju Province Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Warm and spicy dark blackberry and black pepper aromas. Dark chocolate, blackberry, black cherry, raspberry and black currant flavors mingle with some tobacco leaf and leather. The spice is very well represented here, between the cinnamon, clove, and vanilla. A well made cab with good structure, finesse and a simple elegance Read More

  • Milbrandt Vineyards the Estates Cabernet Sauvignon Wahluke Slope Washington 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A hint of mint chocolate on the nose of this wine alongside the black cherry fruit. In the mouth it's sharp and tart with red fruit flavors, mostly cherry alongside the black fruit and chocolate notes as well. Due to the cooler climate, this wine gets a bit of an herbal note to it as well, but the fruit certainly is dominant here. Read More

  • It a great wine for the price, however Snooth keeps putting Sauvignon Blanc in my cart when I try to purchase it. Very annoying.

  • I've just become interested in wine recently and still trying to figure out my palate. Any suggestions for something fairly inexpensive (under $10 or $15) and maybe a couple in the $25-$30 range? I've been told I have fairly mature taste for a newbie. I enjoy cabernet sauvignon and merlot, a thicker richer wine. Thanks for any suggestions.
