“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

  • Ardal Reserva Seleccion Especial 2010

    Snoothrank:

    An interesting wine. A very subdued entry of unsweetened black fruit introduces this wine to the palatefruit is detectable, but is not syrupy fruit-bomb fruit. Then some very serious tannin. I want to say that this wine is light on acid, but, on the other hand, Im not sure that more acid would improve it. It is a remarkably easy to drink wine. Read More

  • Malagon Tinto Mexicano 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Light coming thru garnet color. Something of a chemical nose. Muted prune flavor on entry. Then serious tannic bitterness. Just not a very good wine. Read More

  • RCKR-I've had a few Santa Ema's Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Solid for under $10, but as you mentioned inconsistent at times. I'm on a Marietta Run! This Christo Lot #2 Blend was very tasty. The Syrah and PS really shine. Yes, fruit forward, but balanced with acidity and decent structure, medium finish. Solid QPR at under $20.  Read More

  • Quivet Cellars Pellet Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of berry on the nose. Some phenols. Big hit of blackberry and cassis on the tip of the tongue. Then Im getting the acidvery close to citric. Very tame tannin for a wine of this youth. I am betting that this wine would not be a favorite among Napa Valley CS fans. It is super approachable. On the other hand, Pinot Noir fans may find th... Read More
