Due to the growth characteristics and flavor appeal Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the world's most popular red wine varieties. Over the past 25 years it has become the most widely planted black wine grape in the world. Cabernet Sauvignon is the most successful red wine produced in California. It is a small black grape with a thick very tough skin. Cabernet Sauvignon grapes ripen mid to late season and thrive in moderately warm, semi-arid regions with long growing seasons, on well drained, not too fertile soils. Vineyards in much of Napa Valley, Sonoma County's Alexander Valley, and around Paso Robles of the Central Coast have consistently produced the highest-rated California examples. With high tannins and a savory character Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the more complex wines. Because of the complexity of Cabernet Sauvignon it pairs best with foods that are high in fat. Some of the best food pairings for Cabernet Sauvignon are red meats, red pastas, lamb, strong-flavored cheese, and chocolate (especially dark).
