Delicato Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon
2005 Manteca, CA $5.50 for 750 ml
(Red Wine)

The Delicato Cabernet Sauvignon is a medium-bodied wine imbued with blackcurrant flavor.

For the price, I found this vino to be a pretty good deal.

While it doesn’t have the rolling layers that many other Cabernet Sauvignon offer, I found the Delicato Cab to be pleasant and a little less demanding, too. The flavors were smooth enough to offer the versatility of a wine to be sipped alone or with dinner.

That said, I’ve had other similarly priced Cabernet Sauvignon (think: Little Penguin or Barefoot) that I enjoyed better.

Bottom line: For the price alone, the Delicato Cabernet Sauvignon is worth a try. However, given similarly priced options that I find to be more complex and interesting, I don’t have a compelling reason to buy this again.

  • I find Delicato Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 to be a delicious tasting carbernat. It has a smooth and subtle fruity flavor, without being sweet. There is a nice finish, with a slight but pleasant after taste. It is described as “black cherry and toasted oak tasting, with a soft aroma of cherry, light oak, and a dash of spice”. I found it a satisfactory wine with dinner, or after dinner.
