“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

  • Textbook Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Not a bad Cabernet,,,,I just expected more from everything I read. Lots of cherry and licorice on the nose. The wine lacks a solid backbone, and as a result ends up being a tad bit thin......It was just ok....I wanted more substance. Cheers! 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.
