Hot Trader Joe's Wine

The 2008 Chariot Gypsy is back at Trader Joe's.  This vintage is heftier and has more character that the 2007.  The 2008 version is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel and Sangiovese.  The grapes were sourced from four different counties; Napa, Sonoma, San Joachin, and Monterey.

At $4.99, this red table wine is a steal so hurry to your nearest TJ's cuz you know it won't be there for long.  Not at this price!

Another comment....I just tried a 2nd bottle of this wine and I thought that it has a little too much jammy Zinfandel which leaves a sweet finish.  This reminded me of Menage a' Trois, while a very popular wine, also is heavily Zinfandel oriented.  This wine is still a great buy and tasty.  If you like Menage a' Trois, you'll appreciate this wine at this price.
