“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

  • Chateau Rahoul 2016

    Snoothrank:

    The Rahoul Rouge is another triumph for the price; the wine expresses well in a dark cherry robe, and the scent is marvelous - like a cherry flan served on a bed of cedar or perhaps oak. Entry is smooth, harmonious and ready to roll with cranberry, blackberry and vanilla notes. This is a very fine find for the price... 89+ Read More

  • Chateau Latour Martillac 2016

    Snoothrank:

    This wine shows deep, black cherry in the glass with excellent viscosity on the rim; bouquet is a fine admixture of blackberry (mure), cedar and bright, sweet cherry. Entry is densely packed with grainy red and black fruit such as blackberry but topped with herbs such as dill. The finish suggests vanilla-oak, but soft and already quite integra... Read More

  • Chateau Robin Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux 2015

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this bottle of wine for £10 from a shop in London's Belgravia ... ... ... cabernet franc and 10% cabernet sauvignon and the wine was aged in oak barrels for 12 months.I started my bottle last night with my supper of roast lamb.There is plenty of a blackcurrant,plum and blueberry style fruit but the tannins are just a little too astri...

  • Sumac Ridge Estate Winery Private Reserve Cabernet Merlot 2017

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly clear and coloration is of dark cherry juice, with legs slowly forming around the inside of the wine glass. Beefy spices, alongside deep currant, cherry and Earthy blackberry aromas, which lead into the flavor profile. This follows suit to the aromas, with licorice showing itself on the palate, to go with spiced berries, and Earthy oake... Read More

  • Sterling Diamond Mountain Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2000

    Snoothrank:

    Inoffensive, but, obviously, over the hill. Very little of the black fruit that I normally see in CS. Still noticeable tannin. Acid is, pretty much, gone. I bought nine of these for $5/bottle at an estate sale. I have paid a lot more for wines that were not as good as this. I will enjoy my remaining bottles, but not with any special meals. Read More

  • I can imagine the hidden powers of that Alexander Valley wine.  Nice ... ... and elegance (those based on Cabernet Sauvignon, at any rate) than all but the best from the relatively close-by Napa-Sonoma region.  There is a certain purity and richness to Cali wines from the cooler vineyards; the state is blessed with almost perfect agricultural ...

  • Chateau Croix Mouton Bordeaux Supérieur 2016

    Snoothrank:

    The 2016 Croix-Mouton looks wonderfully Bordeaux in the glass - nearly opaque garnet. The nose is more muted than some of its peers...with a soft cranberry and cassis. Smooth entry, hitting above the usual Bordeaux Superieur, with a soft warm, finish that exudes coffee and cherry. Nicely done! 89-90. Read More

  • Chateau Reynon Rouge 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Another so-called "petit Chateau" from Cadillac, but there is nothing "petty" about the efforts of M. Dubourdieu et famille: this deep, opaque wine from a beautiful property punches a long way above its weight; the nose is plummy (Merlot) and smoky with a hint of lignin. The mouthfeel promises several years of future aging possibilities, with a... Read More

  • Stave & Steel Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Pours a slightly murky rusty red color...slight froth after some swirling with little in terms of legs. Aromas of vanilla oak, bourbon, juicy berries and a lingering, slightly smoky finish on the nostrils. Flavors are much of a typical cabernet, but with added charred oak character....some sweet vanilla charm. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, smoo... Read More
