Red Wine Guide

Here is a guide to some of the best known and not so well known red wine grape varieties:

Cabernet Sauvignon

Perhaps the world's most famous grape, this king of the reds makes many of the most distinctive, glamorous red wines. CABERNET SAUVIGNON covers a wide spectrum of aromas and flavours. It tends towards green vegetative flavours when not fully developed, but as it ripens it tends towards the flavour of blackcurrant and, when very concentrated, cassis. In California and Chilean cabernet, you can often spot mint or eucalyptus. Its affinity with oak lends secondary characters with a range of vanilla, cedar, sandalwood, tobacco, coffee, musk and spicy notes.

Merlot

Long kept in the shadows by cabernet sauvignon, but still a very popular red wine, MERLOT's soft texture helps to give it a deliciously plummy, almost fruitcake-like flavour and a mellow smoothness which makes it more approachable than its sister grape, the CABERNET SAUVIGNON. Like cabernet, it can be a little grassy and bell-pepper-like from cool climate regions and it develops blackcurrant, blackberry, blueberry, chocolate and spice-like characters when fully ripe. Chilean MERLOT often produces juicy reds with blackcurrant pastille flavours.

Zinfandel

California's specialty, In its pink incarnation, ZINFANDEL, sometimes known as white ZINFANDEL, tends to be light, sweetish and bland. Take it seriously though and it produces powerfully-constructed, brambly, reds with raspberry and blackberry-like flavours and plenty of tannins and spice. It is believed to be the same grape, or virtually the same grape as southern Italy's Primitivo, which is equally capable of producing heady, robustly spicy red wine.

Pinot Noir

Red wines from this prima donna grape can be unreliable, but good ones have great charms and finesse PINOT NOIR is one of the most sensuously fragrant red wine grapes in the world with a variety of scented aromas based on red berry characters closest to raspberry and strawberry. It can be a little minty and vegetal when less than mature, but when ripe usually tastes of raspberry or strawberry as well as cherry and, when exotic, loganberry, mulberry and fraise du bois. If overripe, it becomes jammy. As it matures in bottle, it often develops silky textures and alluring undertones of truffles, game and leather. Pinot Noir is known as one of the most expensive red wines to produce, this can often be reflected in it price on the shelf.

Grenache

This increasingly fashionable grape makes appealing rosés as well as red wines. The light-coloured GRENACHE is a quintessentially Mediterranean red variety and as a result it often mingles the classic Mediterranean scents of thyme, fennel and rosemary with white pepper and its warming, raspberryish fruit flavours. It tends to be low in tannin and hence soft and supple and, at its pinnacle in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, it takes on heady aromas and spicy, robust fruit flavours which can border on the raisined.

Syrah/Shiraz

Its homeland is the northern Rhône in France, where it is known as syrah, but Australia calls it Shiraz. SYRAH produces dark red wines whose purest incarnation produces a wine with memorable aromas which can be smoky, floral, peppery, minty or spicy and often linked to a kind of medicinal or creosote-like character. Cool climates, whether northern Rhône or Victoria and parts of Western Australia, bring out the mint, pepperiness and the spice in this red wine, while the warmer it gets the more it changes from raspberry to blackberry, becoming chocolatey and, with age, tarry and gamey.

Nebbiolo

The godfather of Italian reds, this grape not only packs a real punch but ages with great style and gravitas. thick-skinned NEBBIOLO grape of Barolo and Barbaresco fame is one of the most delightfully aromatic of red grape varieties and for that reason sometimes compared to PINOT NOIR, but the aromas and flavours are very different. Structured by high acidity and no shortage of tannin, NEBBIOLO's bouquet encompasses violet, smoke and rose-like perfumes with flavours of truffle, fennel, liquorice and, most famously, tar.

Sangiovese

SANGIOVESE, the main Chianti grape, produces a variety of styles from youthfully lively young reds with juicy, cherryish flavours with mouthwatering acidity to the richer, more concentrated, long-lived, oak-aged style with dark cherry, plum, savoury and herby, bayleafy flavours.

Tempranillo

TEMPRANILLO is Spains most famous grape. As Tinto Fino or Tinto del Pais it provides the backbone of Ribera del Dueros lively, deep flavoured reds. In Rioja it is often blended with Garnacha. In tinta Roriz it is it has long been used for Port and is increasingly respected as a table wine. As it is an early budding variety it can be suseptible to frost in the early season but none the less it is widely valued for fine wine.

Cabernet Franc

CABERNET FRANC is a less intense softer progenitor of Cabent Sauvignon. In many parts of the Medoc and Graves regions it is widely planted as an insurance against Cabinet Sauvignons potential failure to reach full maturity. As this variety is much more resistant to cold winters than Merlot it has made very solid wines in the southern hemisphere, especially New Zealand. The grapes tend to produce wines with a Leafy Aromatic aroma.

Malbec

The MALBEC grape is somthing of a "black sheep" in France grown only for blending with other varieties, as when it is used on its own it can tend to make more rustic "rough and ready" wines. However when it was taken over to Argentina it very quickly found a new hoem and thrived so well that is soon became the countries most succedssful and widely planted grape. The Argentinian Malbec will produce a rich spicy flavor making velvety, concentrated and lively wines.
