Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most widely recognized and popular red wine grape varieties in the world. Originally from Bordeaux, France, it is now grown in many regions around the globe, including Napa Valley, Coonawarra, and Maipo Valley. Known for its deep color, good tannin structure, moderate acidity, and flavors of blackcurrant, tomato leaf, dark spices, and cedarwood, Cabernet Sauvignon is a versatile grape that can adapt to different soil types and climates. It is often blended with other varieties such as Merlot and Cabernet Franc in Bordeaux, and with Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Carmenère in other regions. The variety's fame and popularity are due to its adaptability and its ability to retain a matchless character compared to other grapes.
