“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

  • Concha Y Toro Serie Riberas Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon Marchigue 2014


    Dark blackberry and bramble fruit notes with earthy, barnyard aromas and deep salinity on the nose. Quite fruity in the mouth with black cherry, blackberry and plum notes leading the way for good spice notes of clove and cinnamon with a full mouth of tannin and a note of chocolate on the finish.

  • Rockpile Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Rockpile Ridge Vineyard 2011


    Oaky, viney nose, with hints of black fruit. On the tongue, initial hints of currant and black plum. Lemon? Some earthiness and some tobacco. Surprisingly light tannins for such a young Cab, and the tannins that are there are sweet. Read More

  • 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.

  • Is there someone who can write a description for this varietal similar to the one for Pinot Noir? I loved reading that one, and would love to read about many different grapes. Please point me in the write direction if I am looking in the wrong place. Gantt
