“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.

  • L'Ecole 41 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Brooding blackberry and black currant aromas with earthy notes of pencil lead and baking spice. Continues to be dry and rich on the palate with a melting dark chocolate mid palate that surprises with acidic notes of tomato leaf and a finish of red fruit. Read More

  • Evpatoria Cabernet 2017

    Snoothrank:

    Amazingly smooth and light wine with nice texture : mid-body ripe red fruits, vanilla, blackcurrant and very light wood tannins. It's good by itself without pairing. Read More

  • Sterling Vineyards Vintners Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Gift from Mom, 9/21/17. I rarely purchase Calif. cabernet. My experience is there is better value in the imports. Yes, I am cheap, but I have also been burned more times than I care to mention. However, my wife enjoyed this bottle over several nights. On behalf of my wife, thank you mother. 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
