Another bottle that made me question whether I have any business reviewing wine (I do not).
Not many wines I review have been given the time of day by Wine Enthusiast. This one, however...
This bottle seems to always be available at Trader Joe's, and the label sure is pretty. Does the wine measure up?
When the sun comes out, I reach for rosé. But I like when it's more refreshing than sweet. Which is why I would definitely buy this bottle again.
Who drinks not-really-champagne in March for absolutely no reason? THIS IDIOT. And I have zero regrets about this bottle.
Here's how TJ's explains their "Petit Reserve" label: "The word 'Reserve' on Trader Joe’s wines, indicates something special—a limited quantity from a premium growing region, offered as a terrific value. Now and then, we’ll acquire a Reserve-quality wine at a significantly lower retail—a 'Petit' price, if you will."
"Meritage," a portmanteau of "merit" and "heritage," is an American red wine made from specific Bordeaux grapes. Does this wine live up to its lofty moniker?
I would probably never order a glass of zinfandel at a wine bar or a restaurant--it's just not my go-to red. But, as I tasted this one, I wondered....why not?
Have YOU ever heard of Vermentino? Me either. If this bottle is at all representative...it's great. I think you might wanna grab this bottle while it lasts...
Thanksgiving is coming--do you know what wine you're bringing to (or serving with) dinner?
You know you've always wanted to do it--buy one of each Charles Shaw wine and try every single one. Well folks, I did it...so you don't have to.
Though you can get this at TJ's, this was a "manager's special" find at Ralph's. It's...a chardonnay. A very, very specific chardonnay.
If you can find this at your local Trader Joe's AT ALL, it won't last long...
At $2.99, this is a screaming hot deal even for good ol' TJ's. Can this possibly be worth the spare change you could scrounge up in your car?
Is plain old grenache just as tasty as grenache-syrah-mourvedre?? Let's find out together!
Just in time for your summer gatherings, there's a new boxed white wine from Trader Joe's!
Another Trader Joe's Grand Reserve Chardonnay--I think this will be a winner for those who prefer a fruitier chardonnay!
This wine provoked an extreme reaction. I just...I'm out of words. You'll have to read this post.
This is a popular chardonnay you can find at BevMo, Costco, most supermarkets, many liquor stores...but you can find at Trader Joe's for about $7 cheaper. Worth it? Let's find out together...
Wine in a CAN?? Yes. I am a complete heathen.
