Cabernet Sauvignon... all over the world the cabernet sauvignon makes full flavoured reliable red wine, the ideal food wine.Cabernet Sauvignon seems to have a particular affinity for lamb but it partners all plain roast or grilled meats and game well and would be an excellent choice for many sauced meat dishes such as boeuf bourguignon, steak and kidney pie or rabbit stew and substantial dishes made with mushrooms.

The classic profile of Cabernet Sauvignon tends to be full-bodied wines with high tannins and noticeable acidity that contributes to the wine's aging potential. In cooler climates, Cabernet Sauvignon tends to produce wines with blackcurrant notes that can be accompanied by green bell pepper notes, mint and cedar which will all become more pronounced as the wine ages. In more moderate climates the blackcurrant notes are often seen with black cherry and black olive notes while in very hot climates the currant flavors can veer towards the over-ripe and "jammy" side. In parts of Australia, particularly the Coonawarra wine region of South Australia, Cabernet Sauvignon wines tend to have a characteristic eucalyptus or menthol notes.

Australian expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon are more compact, with marked tannins, judicious alcohol levels and bright acidity, lifted by attractive herbaceous hints, sometimes eucalyptus. Cullen and Vasse Felix from Margaret River, for example, are superb dry red wines with distinctive earthen flavours; while Coonawarra, the other leading Australian Cabernet region, gives dry red wines with a more savoury and full-bodied edge.

Top producers include Wynns and Bowen Estate. Regions such as Barossa and McLaren Vale also perform well, supported by their contribution to many of the Penfolds' wines, including the exalted Penfolds Bin 707.
