Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is a small, round, black grape for winemaking; it is one of the most renowned red wine grapes. It actually wasn’t proven that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc until 1996 by wine researchers at UC Davis.


Napa Cabernet Sauvignon


It wasn't until the 1970s and 1980s that Napa Valley showed the world it meant business with Cabernet Sauvignon. In 1976, a private wine competition in Paris judged by several top French trades and journalists compared current releases of Bordeaux and Napa wines. Later called the "Judgment of Paris," the tasting results showed that American Cabernet could stand toe-to-toe with the most important Bordeaux wines of the time. A decade later, Bordeaux wine critic Robert Parker awarded the 1985 Groth Cabernet Sauvignon a perfect 100 points, the first Napa Valley wine to receive this coveted score.


The classic profile of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon tends to be full-bodied wines with high tannins and noticeable acidity, consistently exhibit flavors of black currant, ripe plum, subtle licorice, black cherry, raspberry, as well as blueberry and/or blackberry.
