“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.

  • Milestone Winery Milestone Cabernet Sauvignon 2012


    This is a nice table wine. It is a good introduction to more full bodied wines, without being challenging with too many layers. Very drinkable, excellent bargain for the price. Will not disappoint. Read More

  • Evans & Tate Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Redbrook 2010


    Toasted almond and dark chocolate on the nose with bunches of dark fruit - blackberry and black cherry and bramble fruit. In the mouth its more red fruit focused with red currant and raspberry, vanilla and a touch of cranberry with a fair bit of tobacco and leather - good structure and a fine finish of cinnamon and oak.

  • De Martino Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Organic 2013


    Really like this one...just mellow enough that correct or not, I can see drinking it prior to most meals. Just a nice, smooth, red that hit the spot on some pretty crappy days. Def buy again. Read More

  • Maculan Palazzotto Cabernet Sauvignon Breganze 2011


    Quite pronounced aromas still holding some heat and powdered sugar, chalk and red raspberry aromas with a touch of perfumed floral violet. Smooth and creamy in the mouth, mostly with red ripe berries and blackberries, some leather and tobacco hints at an ability to age a few years with a finish of vanilla, cinnamon and dark chocolate.

  • Rombauer Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012


    Deep dark black fruit aromas with a hint of black pepper. Light and fresh fruits with good acidity balance the rich vanilla and oak flavors. Black currants and Kalamata olives evolve over the palate. Toast and leather shore up for the finish. Read More

  • Beringer California Cabernet Sauvignon 2014


    Clear ruby red color with purple tones around the rim. While this is young, the flavors are of yummy jammed fruits and berries, and aromas are very close behind. Light in mouthfeel, a very nice summer refresher with a smooth finish....a very strong 4/5! Great value! Read More
