Sargent Canyon Cabernet Sauvignon – 2013 – Wine Review – ALDI

by

cabernet sauvignon, sargent canyon, california, wine, ALDI, central coastOctober 9, 2016
For a Cab, the color is a medium-red.  This one tastes like a Cab.  Mild tannins, a little bit of oak and the grapes add the character and the dryness of a Cab.  There are no off-tastes unlike this recently reviewed wine. This is a fairly good wine, but not a very good or great Cab.  There’s still quite a bit of roughness about this one.  It’s not as smooth as a better Cab.

Cabs are on the stronger side of the wine taste scale.  If your preferences run towards milder wines, this one is probably not for you.  It would be hard to find an everyday food that would overpower this wine.  On the other hand, this wine would overpower most milder foods.   This was a September ALDI’s Wine Of The Month.  However, it also seems to be a regular on the ALDI wine shelves.  At $6.99 a bottle, this is a value price compared to a similar quality California Cab elsewhere.

    I have had quite a few cabs in my time, and I thing this Sargent Canyon is quite good. I was recently at the Aldi’s here in Elk Grove Village, Il and to my recollection it was not on shelves.

      ALDI, at least locally here, seems to have made some big changes in their wine selections recently. I don’t know if this one survived. I’ll have to take a look on my next visit there. The local staff at your store may know what happened to it.
