“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.

  • Pellegrini Vineyards Rose North Fork of Long Island 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Fruity bubble gum floral aromas with fresh peach and gummy candy on the nose. A bit tart, a bit zesty and a bit bold on the palate with good depth of cranberry and cherry fruit and a long streak of earth on the finish. Read More

  • The only grapes that I can for sure figure out is the Zin (of course), syrah, ... ... looking it up it says cabernet sauvignon and charbono (bonarda) are used also.  The charbono I get - I do like, especially the Lamadrid from Argentina; but the cabby I missed out on totally.  Maybe the time in the bottle melded things.But yeah - I like it be...

  • Franzia Chilable Red 5000 NV

    Snoothrank:

    I'm no wine snob, I drink Franzia Cabernet Sauvignon regularly, and I like the Merlot as well. I don't like this. AT ALL. Sorry but I just found it nasty, nasty, nasty. I choked down two glasses and put the rest of the huge box directly in the garbage can. I tried it slightly chilled, maybe if it was really cold it might be less objectionable, b... Read More

  • Gentleman's Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    Snoothrank:
