$6, 3 stars, 85 points, cabernet sauvignon, california, grenache, syrah
Nearly opaque, this deep ruby colored wine has a tinge of blue coloring on the edges. The nose has aromas of black cherry, pomegranate, red licorice candy and ripe raspberry. A touch of oak is also present. The palate is dry with medium tannins and medium acidity. There is a sourness to the palate but I get red fruit, red licorice and charcoal. The body is medium and the finish is short. The tannins linger mind you and there is some juiciness on the back end that I am enjoying. It’s a Trader Joes special that runs $6. Great for a party, this 85 pointer will not break the bank and can be served with burgers, dogs or even pizza. 3 stars from me for this blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon to drink by 2024. Salut….
