La Finca – Tempranillo – 2015 – Wine Review – Trader Joe’s


Trader Joe, La Finca, temranillo, red wine, Argentina, review, mendoza, 2015January 31, 2017

Unpretentious, that’s what a good table wine is.  This is a wine which sits on the dinner table, gets passed around, doesn’t get in the way of the food, and doesn’t get in the way of the conversation.  When the bottle’s empty someone grabs another bottle off the kitchen counter and the cycle repeats.

The wine has a mild earthy taste with just enough roughness around the edge to get your attention for a moment.  There’s not much aroma to go along with a medium red color that makes the wine look watery.  There’s not much bad about the wine.  In fact it’s a nice wine.  It’s just not the star of the show like some wines want to be.  Good and unpretentious, that’s what a table wine should be.   And for a price of $4.49 a bottle it’s easy to fill up that kitchen counter.

    I have a pretty low bar for a table wine. Growing up, the guy next door (first generation Italian) used to make wine in big wooden barrels in his backyard. He’d give us a few bottles which we’d have with dinner before it turned to vinegar. Even with that, from what I can remember, the wine was still better than some of the stuff sold at places like Target or Walgreens. So for me, any wine that’s not outright bad or close to bad is a table wine.
