“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.

Cabernet Sauvignon on Snooth

  • Mercer Wine Estates Cabernet Sauvignon Horse Heaven Hills 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Gift from Swank's at Arise. Mary really liked it. Not a surprise as while it is a varietal, Cab Sauv. 77%, it is blended with mostly Syrah which is her favorite mix when it comes to red wine. Usually we buy this type made in other countries as it generally cheaper than US made. Chile comes to mind. Read More

  • C. C. Jentsch the Chase 2015

    Snoothrank:

    The Chase, which is mostly Merlot, Cab Franc and Cab Sauvignon with some lesser varieties such as Petit Verdot thrown in, is a deep, dark wine of considerable density and extraction for the region. The nose has Kirsch, sweet plum, and raspberry - depending on sniff; entry is viscous, luscious and just off-dry, with almond, vanilla and cassis do... Read More

  • Chateau Saint-Seurin Haut-Medoc 1997

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this bottle of wine for £7 from the website www.cellartrade.co.uk. Haut Medoc is an appellation set up in 1936,although there has been viticulture here for centuries,for red wines produced in 15 communes on the eastern side of the Medoc peninsular stretching nearly 40 miles north of the City of Bordeaux itself.Chateau Seurin is a small ...

  • Robert Mondavi 'Oakville' Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

    Snoothrank:

    More blue than red in the glass. Astringent nose of black berries. On the tongue I find as much red berry--raspberry--as black--blueberry (if I can call that that black). A considerable amount of tannic puckeriness-- I guess there's no surprise there--and quite a bit of acid tartness. I'm afraid this one needs much more sideways time in orde... Read More

  • Paul Hobbs Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Bottle 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Really good wine. Black fruit--blackberry, currant--on entry. Some salinity and stone mid-palate. Nice mouth-filling wine. Tannins and acids are just about completely resolved, Anybody who has this in their cellar can open it now without regret. Read More

  • Freemark Abbey Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Black cherry presentation in the glass; inviting to say the least. On the nose, you get a cherry twizzler and fresh baked dark cherry pie. You can't wait.. but you must, so entry with smooth, integrated vanilla-cherry and raspberry; tannin is pleasant. Finish is only slightly pucker-inducing with a warm, long cherry-currant finish. Delicious... Read More

  • Aquitania Cabernet Sauvignon Maipo Valley Lazuli 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Very light hit of black fruit--cassis, blueberry. Then very noticeable earthiness. Not nearly as much upfront fruit as the California Cabs that I am used to. Similarly, not as full-bodied or, even, as tannic. Read More
