Cabernet Sauvignon 101

To become a master of anything, you first need to know the basics. That’s why I’m embarking on a Wine 101 Series to get to know our grapes better.

Without going all text book-y on you, my goal is to give you a taste of the history behind some of the more well-known wines and then throw in a few rogue varieties just to mix things up a bit – which, really,  is another series all together ie) blends. So without further adieu, let’s start with one of my favorites: Cabernet Sauvignon.

The color of your blushing glass reveals how your Rosé was produced and what variety of grape was used.
