Got a tip on a new Trader Joe’s wine, the 2005 XS Red California Cabernet Sauvignon (to which the Hess Family is rumored to be linked), I heard mentioned in a post that ended up in my RSS feed so went out to hunt it down today. I came back with yet another Trader Joe’s bargain hunting story on that one plus 4 additional wines, 3 of which are again repeat buys. Backing up my mouth with my wallet! The three repeats were these:
- 2005 Archero Nero d’ Avola Ruggero di Tasso – I have been meaning to grab a $10 or $15 bottle of Nero d’ Avola to sample the quality difference for the price increase. As I had yet to get around to it decided to grab another one of these.
- 2003 Red Flyer California Red – Because it is good and $3, ‘nuff said.
- 2005 Gravity Hills Base Camp Syrah – This one seemed nice on the first go round just want to be reconvinced!
Also grabbed one new one, the 2003 Gaetano D’Aquino Chianti Riserva (which I snagged for a $5 spot here in CA), based off a recommendation from the Wine Oaf.
Look for new reviews soon and as always let me know if you have any recommendations of your own to share!
