The Facts about Cabernet Sauvignon 

Cabernet Sauvigon is a Wonderful Wine GrapeCabernet Sauvignon is both an adaptable and noble grape.  It can grow well in just about any climate so long as it doesn't get too cool.  It first became famous with beautiful wines that age very well from the Bordeaux Region of France. (Bordeaux usually is made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc).

The wonderful grape makes wines that are medium to full bodied and high in tannin and hence many of them age beautifully weather a blend or 100% from Cabernet Sauvignon.

With it's ability to handle all but the most northern growing climates and wonderful complexity often showing flavors such as, berry, blackcurrants and oak (from aging in oak barrels) it is not surprising that it has become one of the most popular red wines in much of the world and certainly in America.
