Cabernet Sauvignon is a complex and layered wine. This grape varietal produces a full-bodied, lush red wine with dark fruit flavors like black cherry, blackberry, and black currant with bell pepper vegetal notes and vanilla. It has high tannins and a savory character often described as black pepper and tobacco. Rich tastes and woodsy flavors coat the mouth.
Because of Cab’s traits, look for foods high in fat and umami flavors for food pairing. The robust flavor in our Cabernet Sauvignon make it a perfect partner for nearly all grilled meats, peppery sauces, and richly flavored dishes. Some ideal wine pairings include New York strip steak, filet mignon, short ribs, and hamburgers. For meatless pairings, you can't go wrong with grilled vegetables, including portobello mushrooms and eggplant.
