TRADER JOE'S 3 LOWEST PRICED RED WINES REVIEW

Now I'm no sommelier but with the amount of red wine I consume I may as well be grandfathered into the society. I've done my fair share of vineyard hopping and feel my pallet game is pretty strong. 

With that said, I will never pass up an opportunity to rate wine, no matter the cost - figuratively and literally. We all know that Trader Joe's is a wino's heaven, they have fantastic wine that won't burn a big red hole in your pocket. 

For this reason, I have taken it upon myself to review the 3 most inexpensive wines Trader Joe's has to offer. I'm hoping this will make your decision that much easier in a sea of Red, White, and Bubbly. You're welcome. 

The 3 chosen ones: 

Charles Shaw Nouveau 
{Any Charles Shaw is their best price, but I hadn't tasted the Nouveau and wanted to make this fair}
Purple Moon Shiraz
Cherry Blossom Pino Noir

 Trader Joe's 3 least expensive, cheapest red wines

So that I wasn't persuaded by label design & description, I had my fiance and business partner, JD Snyder, do a blind taste test for me.

Would love to hear your personal reviews on these wines! Everyone's palate is different and unique but just remember, "Wine is ALWAYS a good idea."

We just had a bottle of this last night and had never heard of it until going to TJ’s yesterday for the first time since 5 years ago! It’s a drive for us!! Anyway, I Googled Cherry Blossom Pinot Noir and found your review. We totally agree with you. We also purchased the Purple Moon and will try that tonight. TJ’s will probably be seeing us sooner this time.

I’m drinking the CB pinot right now, and am glad to add a thumbs up. It’s certainly not a complex wine, but for $3.99, it’s an exceptional bargain!
