Dearly Beloved Forever Red Wine
October 11, 2011 - Fearlessly Archived - Still a fun read, price & availability may have changed.
Dearly Beloved Forever Red is currently only available in our stores where wine is sold.*
We don't want to suggest that this wine is all about the package, but we do want to call your attention to the package. After, of course, we tell you about the wine. Dearly Beloved Forever Red is a blend of Syrah, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Sangiovese Carignane & Grenache from Mendocino County, crafted just for us by a much-sought-after winemaker and aged in a combination of American and French oak for about 18 months. It's a deep, ruby-red color with aromas of blackberry, cherry and roasted nuts. The palate mimics the nose, with subtle hints of oak at the edges of the full-bodied and bountiful structure. The wine's good, long finish practically screams for a partnership with our Family Style Meat Lasagna or Tri Tip.
And speaking of screams, let's get back to that package. Rather than a label, the Mexican folk art-inspired design here is silkscreened onto the bottle, and virtually leaps off the shelf and into your shopping cart. Take it for a ride – you'll be glad you did. Especially at our price of $6.99* a bottle, a terrific value you'll find only at your neighborhood Trader Joe's.
* Dearly Beloved 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.)
