AG Pick Under $10: 2006 Dante Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

If you’re looking for a red wine to please a variety of palates, pick up a bottle of the 2006 Dante Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.Dante Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Lighter in structure than many California Cabs and fruit forward without being overly fruity, this wine is very versatile.

On the nose are ripe red and black fruit flavors and rose.  Juicy red cherries and blackberries fill your mouth, complemented by hints of cedar and cinnamon at the end.  The warm finish lingers after the fruit is gone, though the alcohol isn’t as overwhelming as you may think it would be in a wine with 14.9% alcohol.  Low in tannins and with a good acidity, this wine is very easy to drink.

The Dante Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is great for parties.  Not only is it affordable, but it can pair with a variety of foods.  Drink this with pasta, chicken, heavier fish dishes and red meats.

The 2006 Dante Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon costs around $9.
