Hot New Trader Joe's Wines!!

I have a few hot wine tips for the millions of followers of this blog.  A few new wines just came into TJ's.

1) Canard 2008 Petite Sirah.  BIG, Bold, and Intense!  Inky with great tannins and lots of dark fruit.  Oh, and a hammerable 15.5% alcohol, so at $9.99 a bottle, it's an inexpensive good time.  But hurry, these don't last long.  BTW, from the Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma.

2)  PETS (Vinum Cellars) 2007 Petite Sirah.  Not quite as big as the Canard but this is a great value at $5.99.  Again, it's dark, with medium tannins and wonderful fruit aromas and tastes.  A real steal and a portion of the sales go to animal shelters.  All you animal overs (that's me) go get your PETS and know that you're helping sheltered animals.

3) Sonoma Vineyards Chardonnay.  This is an unoaked Chard so if you prefer an oaked, buttery Chardonnay, then this one is not for you but it's a great food wine.  Crisp and clean with lots of apple flavors.  At a mere $5.99 a bottle, it's a real deal...yes, I said "mere."

Good luck in your search for these wines at your local TJ's.
