“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

  • Merryvale Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1998

    Snoothrank:

    Clear, garnet color with the slightest suggestion of bricking around the edges. Definite black fruit aroma on the nose accompanied by vanilla/oaky bouquet. Currant fruit on the tip of the tongue, but no real secondary flavors. Very much resolved tanning and acid. As I had subsequent tastes with my meal (lamb chops with a Late Harvest Zinfand...

I liked the 2012 Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley so much that I had a full glass of that to finish the flat bread / lobster tail meal.  They weren't making the Korean duck flat bread anymore, but the waiter had them add some duck to my roasted Roma tomato ...

  • Camille Benitah Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A recent Naked Wines selection; with this one and a dozen others, I think Naked Wines is getting somewhere...Deep opaque ebony purple in the glass - looking lush and viscous. Opens with thyme roasted cherry, moves on to a blueberry and boysenberry reduced on the stovetop, then an overripe cherry. Full and well balanced tannins and acidity. Finis... 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.
