Pour Haus Cabernet Sauvignon: Look! What’s on Tap?


When lunchtime rolled around on our last tasting day, we found ourselves craving pizza.

So like most responsible wine tasters, we thought with our stomachs, dialed — yes, dialed — the local pizza place, and then found a wine that might work well with our lunch choice. On tap for today? The Pour Haus Cabernet Sauvignon. You may remember us previously reviewing the Pour Haus Red Blend last November.

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the world’s most popular wines. It’s typically full-bodied with high tannins. This wine is also often aged in oak, leading to a lessening of those strong tannins as well as imparting flavors like vanilla, tobacco, and spice.

Let’s see how the Pour Haus Cabernet Sauvignon tastes…

The Tasting 

Wine: Pour Haus Cabernet Sauvignon from California

Kim fell in love with the aroma: “I immediately noticed the aroma of my mom’s made-from-scratch cherry pie! A deep cherry aroma with a buttery yummy crust. I also thought I smelled fig.”

Cindy also caught wafts of dark cherry. Though she also distinctly smelled blackberry and some other slight musty aroma.

The taste itself reminded our tasters of baking too. Kim detected spicy notes, and threw out the word “cardamom” to describe these notes.

Also noteworthy? This wasn’t a “robust” cab, but rather medium-bodied — not overwhelming at all. It was very smooth for drinking — seems to be a pattern for Pour Haus!

Final Thoughts?

While typically full-bodied wines like Cabernet Sauvignon are better with a food accompaniment, a medium-bodied Cab like this one from Pour Haus can be enjoyed on its own too! It would be great with a cheesy grilled burger (all the toppings included), light Italian food (it was amazing with our pizza), as well as something as simple as your favorite chips!
