When it comes to wine, Brazil is deep in the shadows of its neighbours Argentina and Chile, though that could be set to change in the coming years.
Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely planted red grape in Brazil, and tends to be fairly heavy on plums and red fruit. There is a common theme of heavy oak across much of the style.
Food pairing: Fruity, but with complexity from maturation. Pairs well with game meat in general, lamb, red meat, turkey, risottos, strong pasta and mature cheese
