A Blind Tasting of Cabernet Sauvignon

Friday, January 14, 2011 at 5:30 pm Christopher’s will host a blind Tasting of Cabernet Sauvignon. There will be selections from various points around the world at a variety of price points. The beauty of a blind tasting is that many of our prejudices and biases against, or for t a particular region are (at least initially) removed and we can work through the profile without most of our human biases.

Cabernet Sauvignon has risen to acclaim among wine lovers world wide rapidly as it is among the youngest of the Bordeaux Grapes being a hybrid by French Oenologists with the parent grapes being the Cabernet Franc and the Sauvignon Blanc- and Cabernet Sauvignon has made its parents proud!!

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.
