Cabernet Sauvignon Wine

Cabernet Sauvignon is the grape responsible for the wines of Bordeaux's Medoc region, arguably some of the finest reds in the world. Cabernet Sauvignon performs well practically the world over, as long as it's not too cold, but in certain appellations in France, and more recently in California's Napa Valley, it produces wines that astonish with their richness and complexity.

Cabernet Sauvignon is a medium to full-bodied, densely-colored wine, rich in berry flavor with a distinct herbaceousness. A true Cabernet Sauvignon is unblended, austerely tannic, and characterized by the flavor of tea or herbs, leaves and stems.

Cabernet's complexity is endlessly intriguing, partially because it melds brilliantly with other grapes. When blended with the Merlot grape for instance, a softer and more subtle Cabernet emerges without surrendering its quintessential character. Cabernet Sauvignon can be a delicious wine.

The aging process is critical to the taste and flavor of Cabernet Sauvignon. Winemakers often age Cabernet Sauvignons in barrels of different woods, each imparting a unique flavor. Some vintners use barrels of different woods in succession to add complexity. Most winemakers use their smallest barrels to age a full-bodied varietal like Cabernet Sauvignon. The smaller the barrel, the more pronounced is the influence of the wood.
