Started back in 2010, International Cabernet Day is celebrated each year on the Thursday before Labor Day. Originating in Bordeaux, where it is commonly used for blending, Cabernet Sauvignon has become one of the most widely grown grape varieties in the world. Full-bodied, with high tannins, and black current notes, this versatile wine has outstanding aging abilities as well as pairing possibilities. So turn up the grill and open your favorite bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon today! Let us know what you are drinking.
Today is August 18, National Pinot Noir Day! During these hot summer months, Pinot Noir is a red wine I will often recommend. Check out my Pinot Noir post from a previous blog to read more about this versatile red.
