Let’s face it, wine can be confusing. It doesn’t have to be this way: delicious booze should be understood and appreciated by all. Patrick Cappiello, the award-winning wine director at Rebelle in New York City, completely agrees. So he is going to break down the basics of the most common wine varietals you’ll find in a store or at a restaurant.
This week, he breaks down cabernet sauvignon, explaining the qualities of the grape, regions where it grows best, proper glassware, food pairings, how to find a good one, and other varietals to try if you find you like cabernet sauvignon.
