Cabernet is known as one of the world’s finest red wines, with its depth of complexity and richness of flavor. Cabernets can range from mellow and mild to hearty and rich, with the primary taste being black currant. Other overtones may include blackberry and mint. Traditionally aged in oak, the wine also takes on an oaky, vanilla flavor. Cabernet goes well with beef, lamb and goose. It’s also a great match for brie, cheddar cheese and chocolate.
With Cabernet Sauvignon, we recommend use of a large bowl to provide ample surface. This allows the wine to interact with the air while it is sitting on the table, which helps it develop the fullest flavors for your nose and mouth.
