“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

  • Perez Cruz Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva Maipo Valley 2014

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a deep purple at the center with bright ruby along the edges. The nose is a rich combination of leather, oak, green grass and a hint of rosemary over subdued note of ripe black fruit. The taste a rush of ripe, jammy fruit, blackberry, cherry and currant this at first is more reminiscent of a Zinfandel. The fruit transitions nicely... Read More

  • Concha Y Toro Serie Riberas Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a somewhat lighter color, with some deep purple transitioning to bright ruby along the edges. The nose is somewhat of an old world sort of blend of blackberry, cassis, intermingled with dried herbs and spice. The taste is a dichotomy of rich black fruit married against some fairly tart acidity, so that based on the aromas, you expec... Read More

  • Seven Hills Winery Mcclellan Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley 2013

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a deep purple color at the center with a bright ruby along the edges, just what you'd expect from a high-quality Cabernet. The nose is just a breath of ripe berries and earthy leather and oak, that just brings back memories of autumn (lucky it's still spring, I just checked!). The taste is a rush of ripe berries, blackberry, marion... Read More

  • Heron's Nest Cabernet Sauvignon-Pinotage 2007

    Snoothrank:

    this was bought in Dunnes stores for 9 euros less 20% and less 25%, supposedly I will be sent vouchers so I suppose roughly a net price of 4.5 euro if everything works out, for that price its definitely worth the price so I went back to buy more and of course they have none left and they pulled the special offer early which is always a good sign...

  • Flora Springs Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2014

    Snoothrank:

    The aromatic, fresh and inviting fruit aromas of ripe raspberry, cherry and red currant are a bit buttery here on the nose. Silky textured on entry, this develops a prickly acidity in the mouth as the tannins take hold, yet delivers bright black cherry and black currant fruit throughout, zesty baking spice and a juicy pie filling towards the cho...

  • Novelty Hill Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia valley 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Again, drinking above it's price point with dark berry fruits, red plum, damp earth, spice and herbal tones. Medium chewy tannins and excellent acidity gives the impression this could sit another 2-3 years. Drink or hold - 91 points - Paul Read More
