The offspring of the Cabernet franc and Sauvignon Blanc grapes, and is a relative newcomer to the wine scene, when compared to ancient grapes such as Pinot Noir. Aroma and taste characteristics of a Cabernet are black currant, berries, mocha on the mid-palate; these characteristics may vary across region and climate but are generally agreed upon to be typical of the varietal.
