“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.

  • Quivet Cellars Kenefick Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Very much an earthy nose. Light hit of black currant on introduction. Then, maybe something like clove. Dustiness re-appears mid-palate. However, leather may be a better description. Tannin kind of sneaks up on you. Its not until the rear palate that it becomes noticeable. Fairly tartbut thats a good thing for some of us. Read More
