The Charles Shaw label is best known for producing wines of “extreme value.” These became popular when marketed exclusively out of Trader Joe’s grocery chain for $1.99, known commonly as “Two Buck Chuck.” It is owned by the Bronco Wine Company out of Ceres, California. The wines are produced from the usual suspect grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Zinfandel (as White Zinfandel “blush” wine). The Valdiguie style is produced to mimic Beaujolais Nouveau wines, and Pinot Grigio in limited quantities.

    My husband and I tried the 2011 "vintage" of this red table wine, and really enjoyed it. We are your basic wine novices, but we've taste loads of reds at our local wine store, and this is really comparable with some very nice reds. It is dry, and the tannins are present but mild. We detected notes of black cherry, berries, & plum. This rating co... Read More

  • Charles Shaw Cabernet Sauvignon California 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Doesn't taste like a cab at all. Thin and sweet like a cheap zin, but if you are buying a $3 bottle of wine it's better than what you should expect. I won't buy it again but had to see what a $3 bottle tastes like Read More

  • Charles Shaw Zinfandel Blend California White Zinfandel 2009

    Snoothrank:

    I'm not usually a big fan of White Zinfandel but I just finished 2 glasses that were fabulous. It might be because it was paired with a cold shrimp, red pepper red onion salad tart but I haven't enjoyed a great glass of wine like this for over a year. Read More
