Inexpensive Red blend. Nice with heavy d’œuvres and red meat or Italian dishes. The blend is reminiscent of a chianti though this is a French vintage. Black and spicy fruits with some herbs. Dark, rich color. - TJ NOLA

I think this may be my favorite Trader Joe’s wine. 😱 Great tannins, dry, light oakyness that blends together well. Opened this bottle a few days ago and it has kept quite well. 😋

Unremarkable. Unremarkably smooth. Unremarkably dry enough. Unremarkably easy to drink. Unremarkably fruity. It's not bad tasting, it tastes ok, it's just "meh".

This wine’s bouquet brings to the fore memories of the sea. Once I take a sip, I picture a tapas restaurant with mahogany paneling, ambience lighting, and linen tablecloths.

At first taste, well-balanced. Perfect rich and tart berry flavors with a hint of natural vanilla and oak. Not too tannic and light & bouncy on the tongue. For me, I would love this with whitefish ceviche, tacos, and/or pasta.

Versatile and affordable.

Reminds me of a platitude I live by in terms of wine (and life), “If it tastes good, drink it.” I can still hear Larry, the spectacled, fourth generational New Yorker yell from behind the counter, bottles stacked on cardboard boxes, of his boutique downtown wine shop on Maiden Lane.

$6.99 — Trader Joe’s

Just ok, nice fruit and spice but seems to lack the structure to back it up

It comes off a bit weak, but grows on you. The body is light and the price is right for an everyday drinking wine.

Good flavor, balance, and fairly dry. Fair amount of chalk.
