Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the so-called international (classic) varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon is the most commonly grown red wine grape in the world.

Cabernet Sauvignon is known to give serious red wines which gain splendor and subtlety with aging. Its thick skin results in wines with high tannins. While this provides strong structure and ageability, many vintners choose to blend it with low-tannin, fleshy-tasting grapes, such as Merlot or Syrah. Cabernet Franc often joins the blend to add aromatics.

Cabernet Sauvignon produces aromas of blackcurrant, violets, cedar and spice. Warm climates generally give aromas of blackcurrant and cherries, while cooler regions often reveal greener, more herbacious notes.
