Kabinet Wine Term

Kabinet is an official wine term in Germany, often seen on bottles of Riesling (probably because the only German wine that many people in the US see is a Riesling wine). This term simply means it is a "table wine".

German is very well known for its sweet wines and has many categories of sweet and late harvest wines. Kabinet in essence says this wine is not one of those late-harvest sweet or ice wines. A kabinet wine is a normal, traditional style of wine.
