“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

  • Charles Smith Merlot Washington State the Velvet Devil 2013

    Snoothrank:

    From the maker of Boom! Boom! Syrah. For the price point this is a real steal. Vivid berry fruits, spice, earthy tones and a pencil lead quality that really pops out for some reason lead to medium tannins and well framed acidity. What follows is a juicy, lengthy after taste. Charles Smith does it again. Drink now - Paul 89 points Read More

  • Chateau l'Argenteyre Cru Bourgeois Medoc 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Boy did this blossom over the last 2 years. Bought it on a whim after it was recommended to me as a "sleeper" by a friend. Had one a couple of yrs ago and didn't really think much of it - man have things changed. No longer a unyielding child it has grown into a velvety smooth, dark fruited, twinged with oak and a modestly tannic wine. Vanilla an... Read More

  • Carnivor Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Consistent in vintage to vintage. Inky dark juice in the glass, blackberry, bosenberry, oak, tongue coating tannins, chocolate and good acidity puts this above it's price points. Full and smooth, I've found that this is better with a couple of years in the cellar. Drink now - Paul 88 points Read More

  • White wines are a summer classic, but it has been a long summer. There is a ... a ... Franc. This parent of Cabernet Sauvignon is lighter in body than its offspring, but still offers all the earthy, spicy flavors and tannins that red wine drinkers love. In essence, Loire Cab Francs like those from Anjou and Chinon offer the comforting red win... Read More
