“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.

  • Yardstick Cabernet Sauvignon Ruth's Reach Napa Valley Goldschmidt 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of life left in this wine. Great color. Mixed berries and cherry on the nose,but very subtle or fading. On the palate nothing explosive, just steady flavors of cherry and a hint of vanilla. The finish is medium. Tannins were evident but on the soft side. Enjoyable wine. Read More
