  • I have heard that these wines were priced this way because the makers didn't believe that good wine should cost a lot of money

      I really have no idea about where different wines come from. For years I would order Chardonnay, simply because I liked the light refreshing taste. Then I ventured out to explore red wines, like Chianti and merlot.

      But when I ran across the Shiraz wine at Kroger, I was intrigued. This wine was created by Trader Joe’s and sells very very cheaply at the grocery store.

      I have heard that these wines were priced this


      way because the makers didn’t believe that good wine should cost a lot of money. I don’t know all about that.

      But I did a little research and found out that Shiraz is actually a type of grape. Again, this kind of information is lost on me.

      And as a matter of fact, so is the taste of this wine. I can’t call it fruity.

      And it’s not exactly super dry. But the taste is ...


      • slightly bitter.

        I am wondering what type of meal would best accompany something like this. I have had it chilled, which takes a bit of the edge off.

        And I have also had it at room temperature, which is how I really prefer to drink my wine anyway. Either way, I think I could have done better with another type of red wine.

        I would imagine that cooking with this wine

        would be good. I would think that it would be great in some kind of beef burgundy recipe, where the tartness would serve the dish well.

        In any case, I am not sure whether I will buy this type of wine again (from Trader Joe’s that is. ) Maybe it’s because it was so cheap that I’m not really digging it.

        But I have the feeling it’s just the type of grape that’s not sitting too well with me.
