Two nice reds

The other night my sis-in-law was asking me what some good wines were at Trader Joe’s. Right off the bat I made clear that Cabernets were usually off the table with me (pun totally intended) as they tend to be a bit too acidic for my taste. I did, however, remember a couple of favorites that I had in my wine fridge.

Leese-Fitch Pinot Noir. I believe this was recommended to us by the sommelier at Mariano’s actually, but it’s a smooth and rich wine that I really like.

And this delightful Laurent Dublanc Cotes-du-Rhone. It’s very light and refreshing, which is surprising for a red.IMG_7449

I did advise her, however, to stay away from the VintJ label, which I’ve found to be not so great.

Since it’s winter, most of what we’re eating is hearty and savory, which usually requires a nice balanced red to go along. Although, I must say, the occasional Viognier is never out of place at our dining table.

If you have any good wine recommendations I’d love to know (just drop a comment below).
