“Full of red berry flavors and acidity, it has a light touch along with a layer of tannins and signs of wood aging.”

As Portugal’s most well-known grape variety, it has made a nice home for itself in the Tejo region.
Producing wines with high tannins, full body and flavors like dark berries, plums and purple flowers, the grape thrives in southern Portugal’s warm climate.
This grape is found predominately in southern Portugal, but also prospers in the poor, sandy-clay soils found throughout the Tejo region.
The grape has the ability to produce well-structured wines with vibrant acidity and an endearing rustic quality with notes of plum, red currants and meaty aromas.
Cabernet Sauvignon is probably the most famous red wine grape variety on Earth.
It is rivaled in this regard only by its Bordeaux stablemate Merlot, and its opposite number in Burgundy, Pinot Noir. From its origins in Bordeaux, Cabernet has successfully spread to almost every winegrowing country in the world.
It has found a special niche and style in the Tejo Region, one of the few Portuguese winegrowing regions where it can ripen to perfection.
Cabernet Sauvignon is one of those varieties that can be termed "enriching"; deeply colored and thick-skinned, it can spice up blends, imbuing body and consistency to well-composed, perfumed, fruity and spicy wines.
It is rarely bottled as a varietal wine in the Tejo, but is present in small amounts to give structure in many wines.
Appreciated for its versatility, resistance and correctness it yields wines of immense longevity that age with elegance and security.
