Had a bottle the other day with dinner and thought it a fluke, so I purchased another to review. Typical Petit Verdot Inky-Purple color, huge crimson legs. Very high amount of extract. Hot nose, violet, white rose, and American Oak(?). Right here I am stopping the review for a moment to say, this is the first wine at Trader Joes that actually needs some age on it. Everything I have every had from them is either candy flavored or ready to drink. Jumble in the mouth, good acid, quite tanic, with a tea bag after taste. This wine is in the style of a Cold Climate Petit Verdot. I think that in a year or two this is going to be a great example, especially for $10.00. 2nd) Picking up caramel notes in addition to aforementioned aromas. Taste is sorting itself out, becoming smooth and balanced, still tanic, but the tea bag aftertaste has fallen away. I know from a few days ago this wine can put up with rich food. ten-buck Chuck?

I was really impressed by this wine! It has a very 'clean' flavor that seems to focus on the fruit (blueberries, raspberries) without any distractors. And a nice finish. A great food wine, esp. at the price ($10).
