Trader Joe's Late Harvest Moscato 2009 (Paso Robles) wine review by (PB)

Gentle golden color with bouquet of mandarin orange, stewed peach, with an under note of alcohol.

Palate-- this is minerally, with prominent stewed or stone fruit flavors with decent acidity and a finish that lingers.

The get a grip factor is that this was $4.99 at TJ's in Pasadena. This is not your typical desert wine but you're not paying a typical price for it either. Is it worth $5? In a word--YUP!

At this price, you can have a lot of fun so raise a glass!

As long as we're discussing Moscatos at Trader Joe's checkout Sara Bee Moscato. $5.99 a bottle. Much more bubbly and fresher tasting. Stewed prunes is not a flavor I associate with Moscato.

You're quite right, "stewed prunes" is NOT what one might expect but that IS what was there. I calls em as I sees em! Raise a glass!
