Cabernet Sauvignon - grape and leaf

Incidentally, Cabernet Sauvignon was the first classic variety, whose descent or parenting by means of the then popular DNA analysis was determined. This happened more or less accidentally when, when creating a genetic database, the DNA profiles of the major varieties cultivated in California were calculated and compared. This was done in 1997 by Dr. med. Carole Meredith and John Bowers at the University of California and resulted in parenting Cabernet Franc x Sauvignon Blanc, This is also the reason why, especially in the 19th century, they often use Cabernet Franc, but also with the variety Carmenère (direct descendant of Cabernet Franc) was confused. The worldwide surprise was so great because until then it had been doubted that white varieties could be involved in the emergence of red.
