What does it pair with?

Cabernet Sauvignon is a versatile wine that pairs well with a variety of foods. Its full-bodied, tannic structure makes it a good match for rich, hearty dishes, such as grilled or roasted meats, stews, and casseroles. It also pairs well with strong, flavorful cheeses, such as aged cheddar or gouda. For a lighter pairing, try Cabernet Sauvignon with grilled vegetables or pasta dishes with tomato-based sauces. When pairing Cabernet Sauvignon with food, it's important to consider the tannin content of both the wine and the dish. Tannins can enhance the flavor of some foods, but can also clash with others.
