Cabernet Sauvignon is arguably the most noble of all black grape varieties and the most widely cultivated. It first established its reputation in the Médoc where for well over a century and a half it has been the major contributor to such great first growth clarets as Château Latour, Château Margaux and Château Mouton and Lafite Rothschild.

Ideal Cabernet Sauvignon pairing: red meat dishes.

Small and tough-skinned, Cabernet grapes produce deeply-colored wine, rich in blackcurrant, mint and occasionally green bell pepper flavors along with firm tannins that enable the best wines to age for decades.
