Cabernet Sauvignon

Looking at the flights we tasted, cabernet sauvignon has indeed conquered the world. Known as the “King of Grapes”, we tasted outstanding entries from all over the world, from the United States, to South Africa, Australia, Chile and British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley. A grape of power, with complex tannins and balancing acidity, the entries boasted the hallmarks of cabernet, from cassis, blackcurrant and black cherry to notes of earth and leather. While great cabs can age for years, most of the wines we tasted are ready now. Cheers.
