Trader Joe's Reserve Syrah Paso Robles 2009 review by (PB)
Darker black cherry hue with aromas of ample black cherry with raisiny foundation and a hint of blueberry pie.
Palate--Solid steely dark berry flavors on a foundation that is pretty mellow considering its youthfulness. This should be really nice in another year and should hold for at least 2-3 more.
This particular line of TJ's own wine is not carried in all TJ's as far as I know. This runs $10 and for that price, this is a substantial, easy drinking fruit forward value wine. So Raise a glass and enjoy but be careful; this bad boy is 14.6% alcohol.
