A Quick Overview Of How To Say Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon is a variety of grape which is considered the best wine grape in the world. It is the most important grape variety in Bordeaux, and is grown extensively all over the world.
Cabernet wines are known for their tannins, dark red color, and their dominant aromas of blackcurrant and cedar, and sometimes green bell pepper.
In France, terroir is considered more important than the grape varieties in the wine, and the grapes are not mentioned on the label. Bordeaux wines are predominantly made with Cabernet Sauvignon blended with Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot grape varieties.
New World wines stress the grape varieties used in making the wines. Wines made from one varietal (ie one grape variety) are labeled as such, and New World wines are usually made from varietals rather than blends, so a wine labeled 'Cabernet Sauvignon' is made with Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. In France blends are the norm rather than varietals.
Cabernet Sauvignon wines go well with red meat, preferably grilled, and black pepper also enhances the wine.
Don't confuse Cabernet Sauvignon (the red grape) with Sauvignon Blanc (the white grape).
