Let’s identify what it is about Cabernet Sauvignon that you go crazy for...
What does the chart mean?
Basically, Cabernet Sauvignon tends to linger longer on your palate. This ‘lingering’ helps the drinker taste many different components within the wine over a longer period of time. Think about how a wine builds in your palate the next time you taste a wine.
- Tannin tends to come in after the initial burst of fruit
- The finish of a wine will either give the sense of sweetness or of tartness
- Some wines have very little mid-palate
- Some wines build over time, some diminish
