March 20, 2017—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed. 

A respected winemaker in California’s Central Coast region crafts the wines in the Trader Joe’s Coastal series for us. He sources grapes from a variety of California’s coastal regions, where cool, ocean breezes temper the heat, allowing for longer, gentler growing seasons, and giving the grapes an opportunity to develop flavor characteristics that are specific to these regions. He then takes the time to blend the grapes so that the finished wines take full advantage of these coastal characteristics. Our Coastal Wines are easy to drink, and represent terrific values in our stores, every day.

Trader Joe’s Coastal Cabernet Sauvignon is a fruit forward, medium bodied Cab with blueberry, currant, and pepper flavors, hints of oak, moderate tannins, and balanced acidity. We’re selling each 750ml bottle for $5.49*. Trader Joe’s Coastal Chardonnay is a crisp, un-oaked Chard, vinified in 100% stainless steel tanks. Its tropical nose leads to fruit forward (but not sweet) wine with flavors of melons, peaches, and citrus. It’s an excellent example of what Chardonnay grapes can become when their climate allows. We’re selling each 750ml bottle for $4.99*. Trader Joe’s Coastal Merlot is full of cherry and berry flavors. Soft tannins, combined with oak aging, create a deep, round finish.  We’re selling each 750ml bottle for $4.99*. Trader Joe’s Coastal Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, clean expression of the Sauvignon Blanc varietal, vinified in stainless steel tanks. On the nose, it promises tropical and citrus fruits, and on the palate, those promises are fulfilled with flavors of pineapple, guava, and grapefruit, with just a hint of pear. We’re selling each 750ml bottle for $4.99*. Last but certainly not least is Trader Joe’s Coastal Zinfandel. This is a traditional take on California Zinfandel, full of jammy, wild berry flavors, with an excellent balance of spice and black pepper, and just a bit of oaky-ness. We’re selling each 750ml bottle for $4.99*.
