“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.

Revered for being tough-skinned, its reputation Read more »

  • Bell Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013


    Beautiful dark ruby color. Dark fruit on the nose. Sure enough, dark fruit--currant, blackberry--on the tip of the tongue. Interesting, and a Cabernet first for me, smokiness, mid-palate. Big, full-bodied wine. Some leather. Remarkably calm tannin--actually, more noticeable in the aftertaste than in the mouth--but with lively acid. Read More

  • C. C. Jentsch Small Lots Cabernet Sauvignon 2015


    For colour, this wine joins the stable of any Bordeaux of Cru lineage. As for scent or bouquet, well, there is the blackberry, cassis, cured tobacco, and cedar we have come to love in this rightly revered grape. Jentsch has produced a wine of unbelievable purity - possibly stumping the critics in Ontario such as Crosariol into a simple 90 poin... Read More

  • Oak Grove Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2016


    Pours a beautiful rustic cranberry color, and seems to have some suspended particulate.....somewhat cloudy. Aromas that are initially boozy, but settle with some swirling and oxygen, revealing red currant, jammy cherry and strawberry, and some muted blueberry Earthiness on the finish. The flavors are nice, not being overly intense, perhaps sug... Read More
