Tell me a little more about Cabernet Sauvignon
So you’ve picked up a bottle, but you want to know a little more?
Hardy grapes: The grapes of this wine are small and sturdy, and can grow well almost anywhere regardless of climate. It can also survive all sorts of harsh weather conditions, disease and infestations, making it very valuable to winemakers across the globe.
Aged in oak: It is very common for Cabernet Sauvignon wines to be blended with oak, in both barrel ageing and fermentation. The oak barrels in particular mellow out the tannins and bring out new flavours and aromas.
Great with steak: Research has shown that the tannins in Cabernet Sauvignon act as ‘scrapers’ on fats and proteins that collect on your tongue when you are eating. Steak has a high level of both of these things, which is partly why it pairs so well with a nice bottle of Cab Sav!
What’s the difference between Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot?
Both incredibly popular red wine grapes, there are a number of factors that set these two apart. As a general rule, Merlots are more fruity, whereas Cabernet Sauvignons are given more of an edge by their tannins. Both of them also age well in oak, but Merlot must be picked immediately to prevent the grapes overripening.
Both grape varieties are also excellent in blends as well as on their own. Merlot brings body, texture and mellowness, which fleshes out the tannic backbone of Cabernet Sauvignon and softens its harsh acidity.
Where is Cabernet Sauvignon produced?
France: France has a deep connection with Cabernet Sauvignon, and is most prominent in the region of Bordeaux. It is often blended with other grapes such as Cabernet Franc and Merlot.
Napa Valley, California: The US state became famous for its Cabernets in the 1970s. In contrast to regions in France, many wineries in Napa Valley produce 100% Cabernet Sauvignons rather than blends.
Cabernet Sauvignon is also the most widely planted grape in Washington State in the US, as well as countries like Italy and a variety in South America.
