So I'm a slacker...what can I say. I've tasted lots of wines lately and have a wonderful array of Wino Wednesday's to share. This particular wine was from, you guessed it, Trader Joes. I heard about this wine through a co-worker, who tasted it and said it was a nice Spanish Wine. When she went back to TJ's and bought another $3.99 bottle, the guy at the register asked her how she know about this wine. She said she tried it and liked it. Apparently this is one of those underground goodies and it's a pretty good wine being sold and TJ's for next to nothing.
Panilonco "Chief of Lions"
D O Colchagua Valley, Chille
Tasting Notes: Blackberries and smokey oak
Color: Deep purple, like a combination of crush blackberries and blueberries.
What I ate with this: Cheese, bread first time. Second time Spaghetti with homemade meatballs, salad and garlic bread. Was perfect combination.
For $3.99 this is a steal and was noted on an underground wine newsletter. Go now, while it lasts.
