Wine Review: the Little Penguin 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon

OKAY Folks! It has been far too long. I am back, but treading cautiously. I'm slipping back into the blogosphere with an old review I had on deck. Keep reading, wine people! 

Cabernet Sauvignon is a tasty grape. The Little Penguin is a mass market gem. And ringing in at a whopping $5.99, this 2008 brings it... but the follow through... well what are we really hoping for at six bones? [Note, in 2012 - since I initially began this review, I've been told that the price has increased... So expect to pay $6.49...  Watch that wine budget! Wow.]

The color is deep and clear and a whiff gives off a bit of a kool-aid fake grape sort of nose. Nonetheless, the flavor is okay.

Yeah. I said it's "okay." Look - I usually have a lot more to say, but here... nope.


Despite being nonoffensive to the nose or the palate, this super budget choice has little to offer. It's fine for the second or third bottle but don't break it out to start the party.

3 of 5 glasses.
