Cabernet Sauvignon Flavor Profile

One of the world’s most widely recognized red wine varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon contains hints:

  • black cherry
  • blackberry
  • black pepper
  • licorice
  • vanilla
  • violet

Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied red with dark fruit flavors and savory tastes. Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most complex reds in existence. This wine is a natural cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc that occurred in the 1600s.

There is a very large demand for Cabernet Sauvignon, and there’s even an annual Cabernet Sauvignon celebrated on the Thursday before Labor Day at the end of August. Because it has higher tannins, this wine pairs well with foods with higher fats like burgers, steaks and ribs. Big Cork Vineyards’ Cabernet Sauvignon is available to purchase in our online store.
