Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon was originally created by crossing the white grape Sauvignon Blanc and the red grape Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the world's most popular wines. Pair Cabernet Sauvignon with hearty meat dishes and hard cheeses.

Cabernet Sauvignon is a dry red wine that can age for decades and becomes more complex and subtle as a result. Signature aromas in its youth include blackcurrant, cassis, blackberry, herbs and cedar or oak. If the grapes were not fully ripened when picked, it can have green bell pepper or weedy notes.

As it ages, Cabernet Sauvignon takes on notes of seductive spices, anise, violets, leather, olive, tobacco and cigar box. It's often aged in oak from 6-24 months. It can be quite tannic when young (so decant it for an hour or two if you aren't going to age it). The tannins smooth out with age. Just how long it can age depends on how well it was made (quality of the fruit, etc).

Cabernet Sauvignon is most famous in Bordeaux, France, where it's part of a blend that can include any or all of the following grapes to increase the complexity of the final wine: Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petite Verdot. Cabernet is also planted worldwide because its tough skin resists disease and rot. It does especially well in regions with warm, dry conditions and a long growing season such as California, Chile, Argentina and Australia.
