Why is Cabernet Sauvignon the King?
La cepa tinta más vinificada en el mundo tiene sobrados motivos para conservar su reputación a lo largo de los años y seguir siendo la variedad más elegida entre las nuevas generaciones.
The world’s most vinified red vine has good reason to preserve its reputation throughout the years and continue being the most commonly selected variety among new generations.
Beyond personal tastes and preferences regarding wine styles, no one is unaware of Cabernet Sauvignon’s fame. In fact, it is the only vine that could expand profitably to the point of being harvested and vinified in every wine making country.
The legendary Bordeaux reds, the mythical Cabernet from Napa Valley, in the United States, or even the Chilean Maipo are just examples that could undoubtedly be approached by Mendozean wines one step at a time. The Argentines keep on identifying it as “the wine” destined to take the lead in great dinners, together with Malbec, of course.
As grape variety, Cabernet Sauvignon is strong and robust, with aromas that are reminiscent of pepper, black fruit, wineskin, spices, coffee and tobacco, among others. Young wines are strong in the mouth, in addition to their promising capacity to favorably evolve during wood and bottle-aging processes. Argentine Cabernet Sauvignon wines are also full-bodied and well-structured, full in the mouth and strong to pair robust-flavored meat, such as lamb or short ribs.
In the field of blends, the formula integrated by Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, occasionally accompanied by a small percentage of other vines, is still a synonym for the great Argentine assemblage.
