“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

  • Cha du Glana St Julien 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Finding a St. Julien of this quality is difficult at this price - or any price. The inviting plum and blackberry scent has a purity that is not disappointed on the palate - for, with steel and plum - and a little brambleberry - the taste is light and elegant. Underrated. 90 points. Read More

  • Lanessan Haut-Médoc Premier 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Here is yet another highly rated 2010 Red Bordeaux that does not deliver. Cedar and leather nose with some plum. Lighter body style, soft tannin, austere but with a medicinal note that is not enjoyable. After tasting many 2009 and 2010 Bordeaux, I cannot agree with the famous wine writers about the quality of these vintages. Seems like corruptio... Read More

  • Mount Veeder Winery Napa Valley Cabernet 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of blue in the color makes it a nice purple. Nose is somewhat minty, and Im getting a hint of licorice. On the tongue, there is a pleasant cassis flavor that is not overwhelming. Very firm tannin remove fruitiness. There is some sort of olive flavor way in the back of the palate, but it diminishes quickly. It does not seem to appear in... Read More
