Trader Joe’s Petit Reserve Rose 2009
Napa Valley, CA
The wine’s taste, however, has almost no character whatsoever. It’s very thin-bodied. Raspberry and strawberry notes flee so fast you’ll forget them by the time the aftertaste tingles your tongue with its minerality. There’s a bit of a film, too. Stratch that—the more you drink, the filmier it gets.
This rose doesn’t provide anything of interest. Drink it because it’s there, not because it’s fun to.

Couldn’t find any! And I was so hoping for confirmation of my lackluster opinion.
