Trader Joe’s Petit Reserve Rose 2009

Trader Joe’s Petit Reserve Rose 2009
Napa Valley, CA

It’s a gorgeous soft gold and pink rose color. Smells pleasingly of artificial raspberry flavoring—-this is not a bad smell; think of Chapstick or Fun Dips.

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.

Other Bloggers’ Thoughts:

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

      I have no idea! Trader Joe’s is famous for not giving much information on their labels, and it doesn’t look like anyone’s figured out what these grapes are yet.
