Cabernet Sauvignon Wine

Cabernet Sauvignon has long been the go-to grape variety for both growers and winemakers alike. The result of a little cross-breeding between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it took the best aspects of both varieties, including thick skins, hardy vines and low yields necessary to concentrate flavour. Combine that with intense aromas and the ability to add elegance and structure to any blend, and you’ve got yourself a contender in the race to become top grape.

It pops up in practically every winegrowing region around the world, either as a single varietal or in a blend, where subtle geographic and climatic differences feed into a rich range of flavours. Cabernet hotspots include its homeland of Bordeaux, where it reaches sublime levels of concentration and purity, not to mention stratospheric pricing, but also California, Australia and many more.

The flavours and aromas most associated with Cabernet include blackcurrant (specifically the concentrated cassis liqueur style), bell pepper and blackberry, with oak ageing providing hints of vanilla, cedar and tobacco, to name but a few…

    This is a smooth wine full of black fruits and with a backdrop of fine tannins. It has a rich juicy character from the black plum and berry fruits along with bright acidity. The wine, a blend of 55% Merlot and 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, will develop relatively quickly. 88 points Wine Enthusiast

    Cherry and plum-cake nose, then a rich palate with rather fine tannins and a long finish. Drink or hold. 90 points James Suckling Read More.

    Good cassis character from the dominant Cabernet; lots of personality and a firm finish. 88 points Steven Spurrier, Decanter

    This elegant wine is rich, with lightly structured black fruits that reveal the generosity of the vintage and also the ageing potential. Powered by the juicy black-currant fruit of the Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a wine to age. 90 points Wine Enthusiast Read More.
