The Cabernet Sauvignon grape is a widely recognized and celebrated varietal in the world of wine, and it is also grown in Arizona's various American Viticultural Areas (AVAs). While Arizona may not be as famous as regions like Napa Valley or Bordeaux for Cabernet Sauvignon production, it has been gaining recognition for its unique expressions of this grape variety. The wine regions of Arizona, including the AVAs such as the Sonoita AVA, Willcox AVA, and Verde Valley AVA, offer diverse terroirs and microclimates that can influence the characteristics of Cabernet Sauvignon wines produced in the state. Arizona Cabernet Sauvignon wines typically exhibit a rich and robust character. They often showcase dark fruit flavors such as blackberry, black cherry, and plum, accompanied by hints of herbs, spice, and sometimes tobacco or earthy undertones. The tannins in these wines can be firm yet balanced, providing structure and aging potential.
