Cabernet Sauvignon


These thick skinned and richly dark coloured grapes are grown in almost every wine growing region across the world and are strongly resistant to rot and frost. These grapes, a cross of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc, are a relatively new introduction since the 17th century.

Juice Description
  • Long flavours with vegetable notes
  • Thick skinned, it imparts heavy tannins and phenols.
  • Full aromas of black currants and crushed black pepper
  • Has strong acidity that helps its longevity
Wine Description
  • One of the most widely used varieties for blending.
  • Wines with long hot skin fermentations have huge tannins and require extensive aging.
  • Cabernets love the spice and vanilla of Oak barrel aging.
  • Cabernets also have been found to hold higher levels “Resveratrol” that studies show can reduce the risk factors associated with Alzheimer’s disease
Winemaker’s Notes
  • Wine responds well to 6-24 months of aging
  • Cabernet is a terrific blending wine. It blends well with Barbera, Syrah, Merlot, Sangiovese, and Malbec
  • It is the major wine in our Bordeaux Blend (45% Cab, 30% Merlot, 25% Syrah)
  • We recommend oaking this wine with oak chips or in our Barrel Program
