This collection of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Merlot will give you a whole new perspective of Cab!
We all love Cabernet Sauvignon. After all, it’s the world’s most planted red wine grape. Cab gives us dark fruit and chocolate flavours, muscular tannins and luscious, full body. Our fresh look at Cabernet Sauvignon takes us to six countries where this grape makes highly distinctive wines.
Bordeaux is the archetype for this grape, and Chateau Tour Saint Bonnet is an earthy Cab-Merlot blend from one of the greatest vintages of all time. Showing complex development, it definitely deserves a prime steak. You’ll be dazzled by the potency and suave texture of Clos des Fous - did you know Chile is nicknamed the Bordeaux of South America? Howard Park’s Miamup Cab is mint chocolate with melting tannins; Crossfork Creek is lush and ripe from all that Yakima Valley sunshine; and Hendry’s supple beauty is from the year Napa was rocked by a powerful earthquake. And Cabernet Sauvignon would not exist without its parent, Cabernet Franc - look for the same blackcurrant fruit and firm structure in Naramata’s Upper Bench Cabernet Franc, plus the added stamp of Okanagan sagebrush fragrance. Start the grill, set out the big-bowled glasses and get your Cab on!
