Wine Wednesday ~ Cabernet Sauvignon

September 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

by Marty Cook

Cabernet Sauvignon, often referred to as “The King of Wine Grapes”, is the topic of our upcoming installment of Wine Wednesday on this coming Wednesday, September 1st at 7:00 p.m. Eastern/New York time.   One of the Noble Grapes, “Cab Sauv” is representative of so many stylistic interpretations owing to “place” and “winemaker preference”.  An offspring of a natural crossing between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc (hence, the name “Cabernet Sauvignon”), this revered grape can portray Old World or New World styles, as well as some that bridge those two styles.

What version of Cabernet Sauvignon represents your particular preference?  Is it the higher acid and lower alcohol content of the traditional Old World style, or do you enjoy a more full-bodied “big, bold, and fruit forward” style of a New World portrayal from, say, Napa?  There are regions that perhaps should not insist on growing this grape due to their lack of sunlight and heat.  Or, will those regions have the last laugh as climate change smiles on their fortunes with more heat and sunlight?  So, grab a bottle of a Cabernet Sauvignon from the region that you prefer and share it with us as we enjoy another round of Wine Wednesday on the Zoom link shown below!

As always, we ask that you send photos of the front and back labels of your wine bottle to WineCat@pa.net by 11 p.m. Tuesday evening for inclusion in our weekly PowerPoint “Slide Show of Stars” as we trot out each of the wines that our participants choose to feature!

We look forward to seeing all of you this coming Wednesday for this week’s installment of Wine Wednesday on September 1st at 7:00 p.m. Eastern/New York time at the Zoom link below!
