One of the most widely grown and known grape variety, Cabernet Sauvignon is grown in almost all wine regions across the globe. It had come to being the royal grape variety until it was surpassed by Merlot grapes. Cabernet Sauvignon wines usually have deep colours, good tannins and moderately acidic levels with aromas of tomato leaf, cedar wood, blackcurrant and dark spices coming off from the bouquet. A great advantage of this grape variety is that it can adapt itself to any type of land and no matter the terrier of the land; the wine could always retain its ‘Cab’ character. Cabernet grapes always mature slowly as it is a late flowering and lateripening grape variety. Mushroom pizzas with tomato sauce, charred gruyere burgers, marinated rib eye steaks, braised short ribs and mushroom stroganoff dishes are some great food pairings with Cabernet Sauvignon wines.
