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.
