Hot Wine Tips at Trader Joe's

I've had several of you tell me that by the time you got to your TJ's, the Hot Tips were already gone.  Sorry about that, but that's the TJ's way.  They tease you and then take away your favorite item.  

However, here are two Hot Wine Tips that you should have time to purchase.  Both are Trader Joe's Reserve Cabernets, but they are quite different in style.

The first is a 2006 Cabernet bottled for TJ's by Stonehedge.  This Cab is not as intense as the Cabernet under their own label.  It's softer and lighter with easy tannins.  It's in a dark bottle with a gold ship on the bottle front.  Cos is $9.99 a bottle.

The second Cab is also a reserve and is bottled by Mozzocco Winery in the Dry Creek Valley of Sonoma County.  This wine is much more intense and heavier in the mouth than the above mentioned.  This is also $9.99 a bottle.  

Hurry to your local TJ's before these Cabs disappear, although I believe that they'll be around for a little while at least.

Tom, thanks for the tips on wine. I appreciate your effort. Could you post pictures of the bottle as describing the wine?

Thanks, Warren
