Cabernet Sauvignon Red Wine
Cabernet sauvignon is among the most widely planted varietals and features prominently in many of the world's most prestigious wines. From North America's west coast to Europe and Australia, just about every wine-producing region on earth can or will cultivate cabernet sauvignon. Its popularity was initially gained through the dominant role it plays in the production of the wines of Bordeaux, more specifically in the regions renowned Left Bank. Here, it is commonly blended with merlot and more secondary varietals such as cabernet franc, malbec and petit verdot.
When vinified, its classic profile is found in a full-bodied wine with high tannins and pronounced acidity which contribute to its capacity to age extensively. When grown in cooler climates (such as Bordeaux), its fruit flavours will tend toward black currant and green pepper with hints of cedar and mint; in warmer conditions to those of black cherry and olive with 'jammier' characteristics developing in advanced ripeness.
