M&R Recommends Cabernet Sauvignon!

Cabernet Sauvignon, often referred to as the "King of Red Wine Grapes," originally from Bordeaux, has the privilege of being the world's most sought after red wine. Although it is grown in nearly every major wine producing country, Cabernet Sauvignon grapes tend to favor warmer climates and are often an ideal wine for aging, with 5-10 years being optimal for the maturation process to peak.

Cabs range from medium-bodied to full-bodied and are characterized by their high tannin content which serves to provide structure and intrigue while supporting the rich fruit characteristics. The flavor profile includes plum, cherry, blackberry, blueberry, warm spice, vanilla, tobacco and sometimes leather aromas and or flavors.
