Know your wine grapes
From Cabernet Sauvignon to Gewürztraminer, wine grapes around the world feature complex flavors and aromas.
The intense, popular Cabernet Sauvignon
Despite its global popularity, Cabernet Sauvignon is a relatively recent grape, the product of a chance crossing between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc that can be traced back to 17th-century France. It's also a slow-to-peak variety, taking an average of 13 years to produce grapes of optimal flavor.
