Chateau Haut-Sorillon Bordeaux Superieur – 2013 – Wine Review – Trader Joe’s

Trader Joe, wine, Haut-Sorillon, Bordeaux Superieur, 2013, review, priceFebruary 23, 2017

There’s not much on the cork.  In the glass there’s a deep red to purple color and not much aroma.  This is a medium-light bodied simple red wine that tastes good and is easy to drink.  There are a few tannins around to give the wine a little character, but not enough to upset very many people.  There are no negatives.

There’s little information on the bottle or the internet about the grapes or process used to make this wine.  Since it’s a Bordeaux, we can assume most of the grapes used in this wine are Cabernet and Merlot.  Most other reviews on the web give this average ratings (3.5 out of 5).  It’s a fairly mild red wine and should pair well with most foods except the most delicate.  I could sip this all night – regrets in the morning of course.  Price $8.99.

Marchigue Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva – 2013 – Trader Joe’s – Wine Review

This is perhaps the best everyday wine I’ve had this year.

Not that it means much, but on opening the pop from the cork was almost up to champagne standards. There’s a very nice deep purple color on the cork which complements the deep red color of the wine.  The aroma is that of a full-bodied wine with fruity overtones.  The tannins leave a dryness in the mouth, but not very much.  No burn in the throat.  This is something one could sip on all evening.  Paired with an anchovy, Italian sausage, bacon pizza – it held its own.  Honestly however, this is one wine that should be and is worth drinking by itself.

Price – $7.99
