A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe. Inherently high in tannins and acidity, the best bottlings of Cabernet can age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like?Bordeaux?where it forms the base of the?Medoc?reds. These blends are typically mostly Cabernet with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. (Enjoying a great deal of success in various regions around the world, this blend is now globally referred to as a?Bordeaux Blend.) Cabernet Sauvignon from the?Napa Valley?is responsible for some of the world?s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after ?cult? wines.
