“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.

  • Osoyoos Larose le Grand Vin 2009

    Snoothrank:

    The Osoyoos Larose just keeps improving, and the 2009 edition is as good as any of the predecessors with a cedar bark - sweet cherry nose with a hint of black earth and pencil lead.

That and associated acid makes me feel that this wine is still on an upward slope. So, while I am enjoying it, tonight, anybody who has it in their... Read More
