Cabernet Sauvignon, the most popular of red wine grape varietals, its name Sauvignon derives from the word “Savage.” The Cab is grown in just about every major winemaking region. It’s produced as a single varietal and as a major blending component. Cabernet Sauvignon is deep in color, like raspberry, virtually impermeable to light. The varietal is often associated with oak, which in the barrel is used to soften the tannins to make it more approachable.

Pinot noir is a red wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. Pinot noir is derived from the French words for pine and black. The word pine alludes to the grape variety having tightly clustered, pine cone-shaped bunches of fruit. It's a difficult variety to cultivate and transform into wine. The grape's tendency to produce tightly packed clusters makes it susceptible to several viticultural hazards involving rot that require diligent canopy management. The thin skins and low levels of phenolic compounds lend Pinot to producing mostly lightly colored, medium-bodied and low-tannin wines that can often go through phases of uneven and unpredictable aging. When young, wines made from pinot noir tend to have red fruit aromas of cherries, raspberries and strawberries. As the wine ages, pinot has the potential to develop more vegetal and "barnyard" aromas that can contribute to the complexity of the wine.
