The wines are produced from the usual suspect grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Zinfandel (as White Zinfandel “blush” wine).

I was pleasantly surprised when I opened my 2009 Charles Shaw Shiraz father's day gift from my lovely Daughter Holly. After a chill in the Nordge and then letting it breathe for a little while, I was overwhelmed by it's complexities. So smoothly fruity with a tiny bite of spice. It went well with the Oscar Meyer All Beef Hot Dog's that I made for dinner. I'm sure it would go well also with other more exspensive form's of Red Meat. I just can't afford to buy it anymore. Don't skimp on the Wine. Skimp on the Meat. Cheer's!!

For the $3 I paid for this bottle, I'm hard pressed to find anything else that matches the value for money, especially in the $10 and under range. I've always stuck with Echelon and Rosenblum Syrah at around $8 to $10 a pop, but this is just as good and possibly even easier to drink. I honestly can't think of anything until you get to the Kendall Jackson Syrah at about $13-15 a bottle that I'd rather drink than this.

Lightly sour aroma and sharply sour flavor with a good amount of tannic bitterness. Pretty harsh, but still fruity. Not good, but drinkable, and super cheap.

My husband and I were very pleasantly surprised with this Shiraz. It was full bodied but soft, no harsh tannins; extremely drinkable.

<p>This budget wine from Trader Joe's well-known Charles Shaw line is very drinkable and would pair well with classic American fare.</p>
