Cabernet Sauvignon Wine

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most famous and highest-quality red wines in the world, which is why it is also considered one of the best hybrid wine grape varietals.

The birth of the Cabernet Sauvignon cultivar most probably took place in the French Bordeaux region. From there it went on to conquer the (wine) world. In the meantime, Carbernet Sauvignon is cultivated in vineyards on almost 200,000 hectares worldwide. Today its popularity with vintners in the New World is consistently increasing. In Germany alone, just under 300 hectares - the largest of them in the Palatinate - are cultivated with Cabernet Sauvignon.

Cabernet Sauvigon: Wines with Distinctive Character

Cabernet Sauvignon wines can be distinguished by their typical aroma and cassis bouquet. These wines can usually also be identified by their deep, dark red colour and exhibit a texture supported by tannins and balanced acidity. Cabernet Sauvignon is also unique in that it retains its unmistakable characteristics even outside its native origins – almost completely independent of soil and climate conditions. 

The Cabernet Sauvignon Bouquet

Due to their underlying tannins, young Cabernet Sauvignon wines taste slightly bitter and rough, and they are fruity with a strong aroma reminiscent of freshly cut wood. During maturation, a good Cabernet Sauvignon wine exhibits fine toasted notes, diverse dark berry notes, and sometimes even notes of green bell pepper and liquorice. When the Cabernet Sauvignon grape is allowed to fully ripen, it produces complex wines rich in tannins with captivating, delicate aromas.

Cabernet Sauvignon – World-Class Wine

The international success of Cabernet Sauvignon is closely intertwined with the Bordeaux winegrowing region, although it is seldom produced as a varietal wine there. It is typically blended with Cabernet Franc or Merlot  grapes, and to a lesser extent with the Petit Verdot. 

Since the 1960s at the latest, vintners all over the world have been trying to reproduce the straightforward yet not too heavy structure and high complexity of a typical Bordeaux wine.

The best varietal Cabernet Sauvignon wines are arguably produced in Tuscany and California. Varietal production is considered the epitome of the Art of Cabernet Sauvignon, and thus encourages the creation of world-class wines.
