THE VARIETY

Cabernet Sauvignon

With Bordeaux, France, as home, Cabernet Sauvignon has ties to some of the most prestigious, expensive and long-lived wines in the world. It’s full-bodied and has complex notes of black cherry, cassis, dried herbs and violet. The big and bold characters pair perfectly with steak and other rich meats. Although, as also the most planted varietal in the word, it has a plethora of expressions and is wonderfully dynamic.

THE REGION

Bordeaux

A port city on the Garonne River in southwestern France, Bordeaux is widely regarded as one of the world capitals of wine. The Atlantic Ocean moderates the area’s temperatures, while the pine forests protect the vines from ocean winds, allowing the vineyards to produce typically medium bodied, complex wines in the limestone rich soils. Bordeaux is famous for dry-medium, full bodied red wines, in particular the Bordeaux blends. Popular varietals here include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec.
