Cabernet Sauvignon means “wild Cabernet” and the grape originated in the Aquitaine Department of France (includes Bordeaux). Cabernet sauvignon is a full-bodied, acidic wine made from the international red wine grape variety of the same name. It has strong tannins that mellow with age. Cabernet sauvignon wines are high in alcohol, usually in the 13–14 percent range.
Cabernet Sauvignon is the most planted wine grape in the world, about 840,000 acres. It is also the most planted grape in Napa Valley. The world's most popular red wine grape, Cabernet Sauvignon is a natural cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc from Bordeaux, France.
