HOT Trader Joe's Wine Tips

Hey readers!  I've been waiting for some really good wines at good prices and now there's three different ones that I'd suggest you try.

First, Trader Joe's  Reserve GSM, obviously a blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvdre.  It has some real kick and texture.  The fruit comes through with a little bit of smoke.  At $9.99 a bottle, this wine is a real bargain  It's the Reserve with the white label.

Secondly, under the TJ's "Petit" Reserve label, check out the Semillon for $6.99 a bottle.  It's very good with a touch of grapefruit.  Nice with some shrimp or scallops.

Lastly, under the same "Petit" Reserve label, I found the Gewürztraminer to be quite a surprise.  I generally am not a big fan of sweet wines but this wine, although sweet, was refreshing and not cloyingly sweet.  Give it a try with some Thai cuisine.  We paired it with a stir-fry shrimp dish and it worked really well.  Also $6.99.

Get thee to your local Trader Joe's and try these recommended wines.
