Fun Wine Facts!

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the world's most

widely recognized red wine grape varieties. It

became internationally recognized through its

prominence in Bordeaux wines where it is often

blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. For most

of the 20th century, it was the world's most widely

planted premium red wine grape until it was

surpassed by Merlot in the 1990s.

The grape is a relatively new variety, the product of

a chance crossing between Cabernet Franc and

Sauvignon blanc during the 17th century in

southwestern France.

The classic profile of Cabernet Sauvignon tends to

be full-bodied wines with high tannins and

noticeable acidity that contributes to the wine's

aging potential.
