Côtes de Gascogne Sauvignon Blanc 2022

Fascinating QPR #traderjoes #sauvignonblanc - lovely lifted aromatics, dried herb and grassy notes, grapefruit pith, lemongrass. More pedestrian on the palate but solid balance nonetheless, citrus oil, quick finish. — 24 days ago

Montagne-Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

This wine is a testament to the “buy the vintage” concept. Back when I couldn’t really afford cellear-able wines, I heard that 2010 was a great vintage for a Bordeaux and bought this at Trader Joe’s. I kept it cellared until now. The wind poured a deep, reddish purple in the glass. I aerated it and let it sit for nearly an hour after that. Although its nose was moderate, the flavors were fantastic. Strawberry, cranberry, other dried fruit. The tannins were intense. With a fairly decent finish. This is all I could hope for from a bottle of Bordeaux. I will probably be revisiting this winery, since it’s so easy through Trader Joe’s. The wine was a perfect accompaniment to the grass fed ribeye steaks we paired it with. Talk about a great deal for just probably $12-$13 at Trader Joe’s. #bordeauxrouge #saintemilion #redwine #traderjoes #rightbank #rightbankbordeaux — 2 months ago

Trader Joe's

Diamond Reserve Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

This wine pours a purpleish red. It has a modest but very fragrant nose. It has flavors of some vanilla, oak, herbs, and then fresh red fruits like strawberries and raspberries. It has outstanding tannins and a little bit of acidity. As such, it went perfectly with the grass fed ribeye steaks, we paired it with. Being a “diamond reserve“ from Trader Joe’s, this was much anticipated. It didn’t disappoint. I have a second bottle that I’ll open in a few months and see how it goes. I probably will go back and get a few more bottles for the future. #traderjoes #cabernet #oakville — a year ago

Rías Baixas Albariño 2018

Obsessed with Albariño wines this season. I think this was a #traderjoes purchase. Hints of citrus, tastes lemon and apple. Purchased/consumed/enjoyed early December 2019 — 4 years ago

Sur Lie Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine Melon de Bourgogne 2021

Gratifying #muscadetsevreetmaine - 2021 indeed seems to be a good year. Tart citrus, some delicate white floral notes on nose; Lees aging is evident on palate with a glossy texture, crisp acidity and pear, lemon notes continuing through finish. Claire Coppi on SOMM TV astutely identified this #traderjoes QPR champ. — 3 months ago
