Offers a good tannic structure and aromatic bouquet
Cabernet Sauvignon is a grape variety originally from France’s Bordeaux region, characterized by small clusters of small grapes. A member of the Carmenets family and descendent of Biturica, this variety became internationally renowned after being planted in Bordeaux, where it accounts for 27% of all grape varieties. Some Grand Crus Classés are made of 70% or 80% Cabernet Sauvignon. A fussy grape that ripens late, it requires mature, warm soils—preferably gravelly soils.
