Cabernet Sauvignon Grapes
Merlot - The Occitanian word “MERLOT” translates to “young blackbird.” An accurate description for this popular, early-budding red wine grape, which also happens to be a close cousin to Cabernet Sauvignon. Used for both blending and as a varietal, this grape originates from France’s Bordeaux region, and is a primary grape in Bordeaux. http://www.snooth.com/varietal/merlot/
Cabernet Franc is a red wine grape that is used for both blending and as a single varietal wine. MostIy grown in France (especially the Loire Valley), it is also produced in Italy, Hungary, Canada and the United States. Its flavor and aromas bring to mind raspberries, black currants, violets and grapite. It can also have a vegetal aspect that ranges from leafy to green bell peppers. Cabernet Franc is one of the parents of Cabernet Sauvignon, when it was crossed with Sauvignon Blanc.
Tempranillo - It is the leading red grape in Spain, where it is called by many names according to where it’s grown. It is most distinguished as the main grape of Rioja and Ribera del Duero, where, particularly in the higher altitude vineyard locations, it is produced in elegant, age-worthy wines. http://www.snooth.com/varietal/tempranillo/

Cabernet Sauvignon - “King of the Red Wine Grapes.” The colonizer of the vineyards, pushing native #wine grapes into its shadows. The Cabernet Sauvignon is wildly popular in wine regions throughout both the Old World and New World. Its most intimate roots trace back to the Bordeaux Wine Region in Southern France. http://www.snooth.com/varietal/cabernet-sauvignon/
