Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is a serious, older, part-time bachelor. Although it enjoys spending time on its own, exhibiting flavours like cedar and leather when it’s in Bordeaux and sweeter, dark fruit notes in places like Western Australia and California, it can really relax when it’s with its on-off girlfriend, Merlot. Merlot’s fuller, softer character mellows Cabernet’s more rigid structure and fills what wine bods often call its ‘hollow middle’. But wherever it goes, this smooth operator usually has a minty-fresh, eucalyptus aroma that is its unique calling card.
