Cabernet Sauvignon (Argentina)

Cabernet Sauvignon is the most planted grape in the world.

Cabernet Sauvignon in Argentina

The hot and dry mountain climate of Argentina facilitates the ripening of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Here the Cabs are very similar to the Malbecs: full bodied and with an excellent price/quality ratio. High altitude and cold climate Cabs tend to express spicy, menthol and herbal aromas.

Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in Bordeaux (France) and Napa Valley (USA), the two most famous producing regions, grow close to oceans and rivers. Water there is an important factor.

Mendoza in Argentina, has almost 80% of the grape production and an arid mountain terroir with vineyards at 700m to 950m.
