Bennett’s Cabernet Sauvignon Sorbet: The Best Thing I Ever Ate

As far as frozen treats go, I am not a fan of sorbet; I prefer ice cream, gelato or frozen yogurt.  I like creamy rather than icy.  But a few years ago I had a scoop of Cabernet Sauvignon sorbet at Bennett’s Ice Cream, a family run business that’s been at the LA Farmer’s Market since forever, that made me change my mind about sorbet. It was refreshing, it was light and it taste just like wine.  Hello!  It was the best sorbet I ever ate.

The ice cream is made right there on the premises and it’s expensive–almost $4 for a tiny scoop.  But oh so worth it.   Now whenever I come to LA I make sure to go to the Farmer’s Market for my scoop o’ wine. And just like a good glass of wine, I “sip” it slowly…savoring every. Last. Drop.

Or down it quickly and ask for another.  And why not?  Normally I can only drink one glass of wine, but the sorbet has all the goodness without the ill effects.  Too much Cabernet sorbet?–No problem!  The scale may be a bit heavier, but at least I can still drive home.

  • Yes, the sorbet contains Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon and we have been in business since 1963. Thanks for the support!

  • So, this may be a stupid question, but does it actually have wine in the sorbet or just taste like it? Either way I have to say, “Yes, please”!

    • You know Kate, I really don’t know, but it does taste JUST LIKE wine. So good!
