Cabernet Sauvignon, often referred to as the “King of Red Wine Grapes,” originally from Bordeaux, with a substantial foothold in California’s wine races, has the privilege of being the world’s most sought after red wine. Cabernet Sauvignon grapes tend to favor warmer climates and are often an ideal wine for aging, with 5-10 years being optimal for the maturation process to peak. Because Cabs take a bit longer to reach maturation, allowing their flavors to mellow, they are ideal candidates for blending with other grapes, primarily Merlot. This blending softens the Cabernet, adding appealing fruit tones, without sacrificing its innate character.

Flavor Profile:
Cabs range from medium-bodied to full-bodied and are characterized by their high tannin content which serve to provide structure and intrigue while supporting a rich, ripe berry, tobacco and sometimes green pepper flavor.

Food Pairings:
Red meats, flavorful and heartier (red) pastas, lamb, strong-flavored cheese, and chocolates (especially dark).


Here's the format: (for anyone that's new.. copy and past the info below and create your own review of the win you choose. Post it to the thread and upload a photo. If you need help uploading a photo, let us know - we'd be happy to help or upload it for you!)

Woooohooooo! may fav of all time Very Happy In fact, I had bought some new ones that I haven't tried yet!

I would like to add they're also great with BBQ and smoked cheese! (IMO)

And, (for those not familiar with Cabs) If you're going with the inexpensive range, I think the ones that are at least a few years old are so much better than really young ones.

Thanks Spryte!

That's pretty bad Spryte. Heh. I don't think my store even carries Maddog. When we did Muscat a while ago I first had to spell it out before the guy would stop saying "muskrat?" and then he simply couldn't understand that it was a grape type, not a vintners name. He kept showing me bottles with winery names that sounded kind of like muskrat or began with an m. I didn't ever find one at that store...
