“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

  • Tenuta San Guido Supertuscan Blend Toscana IGT Guidalberto 2009

    Snoothrank:

    The nose showed intense red fruits, powdered sugars and hint of herbs. The palate was pure and balanced with red fruit and great acidity. The finish was medium long with red fruits and tobacco. The 09 Guidalberto is a very good wine that would score much higher in my book, at half its price. Read More

  • Agricola Punica Carignane Blend Isola Dei Nuraghi IGT Montessu 2008

    Snoothrank:

    The nose showed intense ripe berries, sweet spices and field herbs. On the palate, it was velvety smooth with mouthwatering acidity and dark brambly fruits. The finish was long yet refreshing. This wine would make a great accompaniment to braised meats and heavy meat sauces. Read More

  • Rockpile Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Big and bold, with good round fruit featured, framed with well balanced oak and acidity. Still a bit primary after being bottled only 7 months. With another year or two of bottle age, it'll be even better. 90-91 points. Read More

  • Larkmead Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This bottle is still very young. Super dark and concentrated. It is much better after being open a day. Leather, pipe tobacco, vanilla notes, and spice all compliment this fruit forward earthy effort. As nice as this wine is now it should evolve to a whole different playing field in 2-4 years.
