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

  • Buoncristiani Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Good opening of dark fruit-cassis, blueberry--on entry. Then, whoa, what a tannic monster. Then leathery, tobacco bitterness. I actually think this wine has tremendous potential. There is sufficient acid to suggest that aging will tame the tannin. However, this process will take years of patience. Read More

  • Gallo Signature Series Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Spiced blackberry and black currant aromas with a deep core of earthy oak spice. Expands instantly on the palate, washing through the mouth with juicy black cherry, blackberry and black currant fruit, good heft and thick, sticky tannins towards the finish gripping the tongue while dark chocolate notes riding along.

  • Chateau Belle Cure Bordeaux France Merlot Blend 2015

    Snoothrank:
