Trader Joe's Platinum Reserve Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2020-Time To Look For Bargains

1/5/2022
Trader Joe's Platinum Reserve Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2020-Time To Look For Bargains. This Pinot Noir is a little too hot for my tastes, 14.5% alcohol. But I think it is intended for the Restaraunt crowd, and some high alcohol content will not be noticeable when paired with food. I am a Pinot Noir sipper, and I want my Pinot delicate and complicated. The extra alcohol removes some of the complications.

Dancing Flame Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2019-$6.99 From Aldi

1/3/2022
Dancing Flame Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2019-$6.99 From Aldi 2022 has us back on the cheap wine beat. This is a seven-buck Cab Sauv from Chile. I got used to the fancy but cheap Cabernet Sauvignon I drank in December 2021, so I was not entirely taken by this Cab. But it is a pretty reasonable $7 Red wine. I got a little jaded by going upscale last month. Check out www.cheapwinefinder.com and listen to the podcast for all the details

Hwy 5 Pinot Noir 2020-Aldi $5 Party Wine

12/23/2021
Hwy 5 Pinot Noir 2020-Aldi $5 Party Wine Ok, so you think five dollars is too cheap for wine. In Europe, where they drink wine with the meal, they seldom spend more than two or three Euros on a wine. 2 or 3 Euros equals $5. And Aldi, Trader Joe's, and Costco wines are typically 40% less than comparable retail wine shop wines. So, is this wine too cheap? No. Check out www.cheapwinefinder.com and listen to the podcast for all the details! And Merry Christmas from Cheapwinefinder.com!!!

Trader Joe's Reserve Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2019-$25 for $9.99? My cousin's next-door neighbor's uncle has a friend who read on the internet that this is a restaurant wine of note that because of Covid in 2020 and 2021 didn't sell and, with a new vintage coming, had to be sold off. And Trader Joe's stepped in and bought and bought the whole vintage. Does it taste more expensive than a $9.99 Cab Sauv? Yes, it does.
