Cabernet Sauvignon popular everywhere
The “Cab” is a classic red wine that goes well with almost any red meat. Its blackcurrant notes and famous tannins allow it to work especially well with venison, lamb or the richer cuts of beef. To get the true flavor of the wine, it should be served at 14 to 16 degrees centigrade.
First introduced to California’s wine-growing regions in the 1870s, this rugged yet refined wine grape with its distinctive range of bouquets made a good marriage with American oak. The sun and gently climate of the Napa Valley let the grape reach its full potential. A hundred years later, the California Cabernet truly came into its own when an American Cab beat out French Bordeaux wines in a blind taste test in France. In the ‘80s, the vines were grafted onto American rootstock to protect them from phylloxera, leading to a much more sugary grape and a much stronger wine.
