Cabernet Sauvignon - Red Wine Making Kit (Heavy-Bodied - 13.5% PABV)
Cabernet Sauvignon (ka-ber-NAY saw-vee-YOHN)
Cabernet Sauvignon is the world’s most popular red wine! Cabernet Sauvignon is very tannic when young and must be aged at least a decade, so is often blended with Merlot or Cabernet Franc to cut down on aging time and soften the tannins.
Taste: Aromas and flavors of blackcurrant, black cherry and blackberry, as well as vegetal notes of green bell pepper and mint, together with vanilla and spice from oak.
Acidity: Medium to high
Age: Most are made to be consumed within a few years of release, but higher quality wines need several years to soften their tannic structure and develop their full flavour profile.
