Violet House Monterey Red Blend 2019-An $8 ALDI Halloween Party Wine

10/20/2021
Violet House Monterey Red Blend 2019-An $8 ALDI Halloween Party Wine The label is a violet, black, and white Mexican Day of the Dead skull; it is very well done. This is a wine that ALDI seems to release every year around Halloween, I do not think there was a 2020 version, but that was a messed up year. Every year is a new label, but the wine in the bottle is interesting and loads of fun to drink. Check out www.cheapwinefinder.com and listen to the podcast for all the details!

10/15/2021
Witches Brew Pumpkin Spice Apple Wine-Don't Fear The Halloween Fruit Wine Found this wine (apple wine) at Trader Joe's, selling for $6.99. Produced in Northern Michigan by a winery that has been in business since 1974. Only 10% alcohol content, this a beverage that works both chilled and warm. It works better as an adult drink after the kids return from Trick or Treating than a Halloween costume party. Apple Spice is the main flavor, followed by Pumpkin Spice. This wine has a Harvest...

Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc Viognier-Chenin Blanc Is Good For U And Good To U

9/30/2021
Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc Viognier-Chenin Blanc Is Good For U And Good To U Chenin Blanc is a world-class wine, and Viognier is an excellent blending grape. The Chenin Blanc is sourced from vineyards in the Clarksburg AVA and the Viognier from the Lodi AVA. Those are Central Valley AVAs, not the usual North Coast or Central Coast grapes. All that is well and good, but how does this wine taste.... the nectar of the gods. Ok, maybe that is an overstatement, but this is a delicious...

9/25/2021
Trader Joe's Platinum Reserve Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2020-$100 Selling For $15? This was a strange one. Was this your typical 2020 vintage Red wine, or was it a Cabernet Sauvignon from a top Napa winery that typically sells for hundreds of dollars? Well, all we have to go by is what TJ's tells us, but is this an excellent $14.99 Cab? Yes, it is! Check out the podcast and read www.cheapwinefinder.com for all the details

Santa Rita 120 Sauvignon Blanc 2020-Everyday Sauv Blanc From Chile

9/20/2021
Santa Rita 120 Sauvignon Blanc 2020-Everyday Sauv Blanc From Chile There ain't nothing wrong with a bottle of good everyday wine! I think making excellent value-priced wine is harder than making fancy wine where they spare no expense. And who does not like a good Sauvignon Blanc? It is one of the most consistently good-tasting White wines on the market. Check out www.cheapwinefinder.com and/or listen to the Podcast (I recommend doing both) to check out all the details.

Grifone Primitivo - Trader Joe's 5 Buck Fun Italian

9/15/2021
Grifone Primitivo - Trader Joe's 5 Buck Fun Italian $5 wine should not be drinkable. Especially when a part of that five dollars is used to ship the wine to America and then to a Trader Joe's near you. But the Grifone Primitivo 2020 drinks just fine; it is an enjoyable red wine. Primitivo and Zinfandel are both clones of an old grape from Croatia. Close but not the same. The Grifone Primitivo is sourced from Puglia in the heel of Italy's boot. It is way better than you would...

Gruet Sauvage Rosé- Excellent "No Dosage" Bubbly

9/13/2021
Gruet Sauvage Rosé- Excellent "No Dosage" Bubbly Bubbly Season is between Halloween and New Year's Eve. I think Bubbly is appropriate year-round, but the fact remains most Sparkling wine is purchased in the last 3 months of the year. This is a No Dosage Bubbly, meaning they did not add sweet wine when the 2nd fermentation was complete. The Gruet Sauvage Rosé- Excellent "No Dosage" Bubbly is bone dry!!!

Louis Jadot Mâcon-Villages Chardonnay- Drink Like The French This is a Burgundian Chardonnay from Louis Jadot, a producer in the wine business since the 1850s. The wine sells for around $13, less on sale, and they make enough to find this wine in grocery stores and wine shops. Even California Chardonnay producers look to Burgundy for inspiration, which is a wine that wine drinkers should experience. It is un-oaked, and it tastes great; I do not miss the oak influence at all. Check out...
