Well Read California Heartswork Winery Organic and Sulfite Free 2007

Member Review by matthewjk:

Picked this up today @ TJ's for $8. This isn't horrendous; it isn't great; it is decent red table wine. Recommendation: never re-buy at price point.

Not a bad wine at all (the 2012) - we were attracted to the label in TJ's because of the sulfite-free and organic properties. Didn't see any notes regarding the blend on the label (Grenache, Sangiovese & a bit of Syrah), but that would have been good to have. At 13.5%, the alcohol content is evident in the nose, and first sip gives a grapey, jammy flavor. Paired this with an eggplant parmesan, and which brought out a lot of the acid. I agree with the 'bite' it had at it's first opening. A reasonably priced wine at around $5-$6, though there are probably better ones out there without the sulfite-free label. Random note, but I dig the screw cap. :-) Would buy again!

This Trader Joe's exclusive isn't the kind that makes you say, "Mmm" after a taste. It's not really deep or flavorful. Nothing special in the smell. There weren't any stand-out fruit elements, except perhaps very slight pomegranate. It's sour and sharp in the back of the mouth, stinging a bit. The finish is just a bit floral, hinting at lilac or lavender - I didn't sense the advertised vanilla finish. The sharpness isn't worth the lack of flavors or the cost. Two Buck Chuck is more appealing to me. On the other hand, in terms of health, I give this wine points for being organic and sulfite free. This is the first such wine I've tasted. Let me add that after opening it, it got better with each day it sat there opened in the cupboard. The bite was not as potent later on. I actually enjoyed my 3rd or 4th glass, several days after opening it.

Ok, I'm going to bring this 2007 up a bit. For the extreme short money at TJ’s and lack of headache tomorrow the pomegranate shows well. Fruit forward. That's a great jammy value in my book. I didn't remember it was sulfite free until I looked. I will serve it to my red wine allergic friends and buy a bunch of it. I would, however, like Heatsworks to show me what’s in it on the label.

Good wine! I liken it to a cheaper Amarone. It has a wonderful full mouth, very fruity flavor, and a tiny bit of heat going down. I went back to TJs to buy up more and found that there were only two cases left! My son in D.C. says he can't find it anymore. People must enjoy the wine as much as I, at the rate it has been selling.
