Dear Editor,

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most economically valuable and widely planted wine grape varieties. It is widely planted in Xinjiang, an important grape-producing area in China. Grafting, an ancient agricultural technique, is widely used to improve the biotic and abiotic resistance of grapes. With continuous increases in consumer requirements for grape fruit quality, the content and activity of various phenolic substances in grape skins have attracted widespread attention. An increasing number of studies have found that rootstocks can improve grape resistance while also altering quality-related substances such as sugars, acids, polyphenols, phenolic acids, stilbene, and others. In particular, antioxidant substances have attracted more and more attention [13].
