March 18, 2013—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read, price & availability may have changed.
This $5.99* Red Blend was presented to the Trader Joe's tasting panel at the same time as an expensive Cabernet. The Spiral Wines Red surprised everyone—serious, but easy-drinking, the ruby elixir, made from 58% Merlot, 15% Petite Syrah, 16% Zinfandel and 11% Syrah was exciting—tasty. It made the pricey cab seem "meh." It presents blackberry & currant aromas, laced with hints of cedar & spice, and well-balanced tannins that stretch over the palate. It's great! It's $5.99*!
*Spiral Wines Red Blend is currently available in Trader Joe's stores where wine is sold. It is $5.99 unless otherwise noted here: OR, WA, CA, NV, NM, AZ, TX: $4.99 and OH: $6.49. Alcohol availability & price may vary due to state laws, taxes, shipment fees & other such stuff. (If we could, we would.)
