The King of the red wine grapes
Cabernet Sauvignon produces wines of structure and complexity with rich dark fruit characteristics.
Cab Sauvs will often be big, powerful reds with lavishly layered palate often with a touch of cedar wood. When blended it elevates the concentration of flavours and helps add a big finish.
Cabernet Sauvignon is a cross between Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc and comes from Bordeaux, France. It was only discovered in 1997 that Cabernet Sauvignon was in fact a descendent of Sauvignon Blanc so the knowledge that it comes from Sauv and Cab Franc is relatively new! Nowadays it’s grown across most of the world’s wine growing regions and is both blended and left to its own accord.
