Oh, except that it’s a bitch to find if you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you.
Sturdy, solid and rich. It’s red. Give me a break.
Extreme aromatics. Black licorice, violet, cherry and strong poached plums. Beautiful nose.
Fruit-forward, but not a bomb. Good mix of tobacco and fruit salad elements. Dark berries, saddle leather, chewy. Great structure, I mean seriously. This wine has a brilliant attack, mid-palate and finish. Great tannins back up a full, Ribena-like mouthfeel (look it up).
A fruit and cheese red. The flavors are so dang delicious, yet delicate, I wouldn’t want to ravage them with red meat or even red sauce. Try salad, though I know how odd that sounds. A bacon, blue cheese, tomato and pears poached in red wine salad. Perfection.
Where to Buy
It’s around $8 bucks at Trader Joe’s but I don’t know where else, dammit.
