Every year on 30th August, the wine world celebrates the undisputed king of red varieties – Cabernet Sauvignon – the most widely planted red grape variety in the world. With the potential for fruit, elegance, power, complexity, consistency, acidity and aging, Cabernet Sauvignon's got it all.

There is so much to love about Cabernet Sauvignon. Look for the signature aroma of black currant, and from there, depending on the wine's age and how much time it spent in barrels, aromas and/or flavours can include gorgeous notes of plums, blackberry, black cherry, blueberry, raspberry, mint, violet, eucalyptus, anise, vanilla, clove, chocolate, coffee, liquorice, tobacco, green pepper, black pepper, spice, leather and smoke.
