From the Edna Valley • An Outstanding Value at $6.99!
Trader Joe's Petit Reserve Pinot Noir Edna Valley is currently only available in our stores where wine is sold.*
The San Luis Obispo AVA (American Viticultural Area) is known for its cool climate and long growing season, conditions that make it an ideal region for Pinot Noir grapes. The Edna Valley, nestled in the middle of this AVA, amplifies everything about San Luis Obispo that makes it Pinot's perfect partner.
Trader Joe's Petit Reserve Pinot Noir Edna Valley is made exclusively for us using 100% Pinot Noir grapes from Edna Valley, aged in French oak for 12 months. Pinot Noir from warmer regions tends to be super dark and highly tannic; not this one. The longer, cooler growing season afforded by Edna Valley's climate results here in a lush, floral and vibrant wine with aromas of raspberries and violets, and hints of nutmeg. It's an easy drinking wine, with a soft, round finish. Pair it with Pork Tenderloin, Mushroom Ravioli or an evening by the fire with a good book.
Wines of this quality, with this kind of pedigree, generally come with a hefty price tag. Our price of $6.99* proves that you can get really excellent wine at a really excellent price. Cheers!
*TJ's Petit Reserve Pinot Noir Edna Valley is $8.99 in Ohio. Alcohol availability & price may vary due to state laws, taxes, shipment fees & other such stuff. (If we could, we would.)
