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.

  • Chapelle de la Trinite Saint Emilion 1995

    Snoothrank:

    This bottler of wine was part of a lot I bought on the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/104384.

  • Martin Ray Vineyards & Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Intriguing ripe berry aromas with wood spice and a flinty salinity on the nose alongside dark black cherry notes. This is expansive and quite fruity on entry with red fruit notes of ripe cherry, raspberry and a touch of medicine, soft structure and a finish of blueberry and delicate spice. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    This is a nice value wine that exemplifies both a deep, slightly spicy dry quality along with a fresh juicy forward approach that is standard for a Merlot. Nice purple-ish/cherry coloration and fruity aromas that are borderline boozy, woody and some cinnamon/peppercorn spice. Decent overall Read More

  • Gato Negro Cabernet-Merlot 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Drank this with some triple-meat pizza (pepperoni, sausage, and bacon). The flavors complimented well, and it was plenty good the next night as a standalone as well. One I drank was 2015, so from last year. More than happy to buy it again. Convenience note - this one has a screw top. Read More
