It's easy to see why this noble varietal is the bestselling red in the United States, and number two in California acreage. Cab's popularity among grape growers is credited to its cultivation; this varietal has thick skins and hardy vines.


With its firm, focused structure, lingering dark fruit (blackberry, blueberry, black currant), and hints of mocha and earth, Cabernet Sauvignon's concentrated flavors mellow into a rich elegance as it ages.


Try Cabernet Sauvignon with grass-fed beef, whether grilled, roasted, braised or stir-fried.
