History of Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet is the name of both the grape and the wine it produces. Cabernet is known as one of the world's finest red wines, with its depth of complexity and richness of flavor. Other names for this grape and wine are Petit Cabernet, and in Italy, Uva Francese.

Cabernet is grown all over the world - South America; Australia; Lebanon; Long Island, NY; Northern California; and of course France. The grape is very durable and adapts to various climates well. The two areas of Bordeaux, France that use this grape - Medoc and Graves - have only created the red wine since the 18th century, so it is a relatively new occurrence.

Red Bordeaux wines are created with Cabernet Sauvignon, often blended with Cabernet Franc and Merlot. This same set of grapes is used to create Meritage. the US's answer to Bordeaux.

Cabernets can be mellow and mild, hearty and rich. It has a deep red color, with the primary taste being black currant. Other overtones can include blackberry and mint. Traditionally aged in oak, the wine also takes on an oaky, vanilla flavor. Higher quality cabs age extremely well (although a bit slowly), developing a sprinkling of five or six tastes within it. Cabernet goes well with beef, lamb and goose, especially when cooked with herbs. It also is a great match for brie, cheddar cheese, and chocolate
