“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.

  • Rivers-Marie Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of dark fruit on entry--blueberry, currant--and the slight sweetness sensation might suggest dried fruit. I'm a tad surprised that a wine this young isn't "rougher." Tannin is observable. Acid is observable. However, the wine is approachable in its youth. I get some roughness under the rear palate, but nothing to worry about. Read More

  • Myriad Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2016

    Snoothrank:

    A lot of up front fruit--blackberry. It gives the impression of being a tad sweet. Normally, I would view that as a negative. Under the mid- rear- palate I get an unsweetened chocolate sensation that makes me think this is a real wine. Approachable now, but will, most assuredly keep for years. Read More

  • Quivet Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Dark plum color in the glass. Dark fruit on the nose, although, with a hint of alcohol. As expected lots of black fruit on the tip of the tongue--cassis and blackberry, most notably. Leather, and, maybe, tobacco mid-palate. Very nice, sturdy tannins. Read More
