Love a good quality Cabernet Sauvignon? We do too! At E-Ville Spirits and Wines we take pride in the quality of the wines that we feature in our shop. Cabernet quality is so important to us that we personally taste and rate each wine that we sell in our store.
What is Cabernet Sauvignon?
Cabernet Sauvignon is a small, blueish colored, thick-skinned grape. It has a high pip (which gives it it’s tannins) to pulp ratio. The thick skins give it the deep rich color. One of our favorite varieties, Cabernet is now considered the worlds most prevalent red wine grape variety and quality Cabernet grapes are grown throughout the world.
What are the Characteristics of Cabernet?
The flavor profile of a Cabernet will vary depending on where the grape is grown. It can even vary from one region or sub-region to another. What do you look for when your choosing a Cabernet? Some of the best Cabernet Sauvignon wines are full bodied with a good well balanced structure and deep color. They are tannic in youth, especially when matured in oak, and often require a few years to soften before they become enjoyable to drink.
Why does Cabernet Quality Matter?
First of all, nobody wants to throw their money away ever, right? So first and foremost if you are not buying a Cabernet of good quality then you are just wasting your money, enough said. Secondly, do you like to lay your wines down and let them age? If so then Cabernet quality should matter to you. A good quality Cabernet can be quite tannic in youth. With a few years of aging it will soften and become enjoyable to drink. Many Cabernet wines are organic or even biodynamic and quality Cabernet’s don’t have additives. So when you are spending your money, spend wisely and remember that Cabernet quality does matter.
