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

Panilonco Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva- 2014 – Wine Review – Trader Joe’s

wine, cabernet sauvignon, red wine, chile, 2014, reserva, colchagua valley, trader joesRustic comes to mind from first uncorking to finish.  This is rough around all the edges, but not overly rough.  From the Colchagua Valley of Chile, this is a good table wine.  The wine is mildly dry on the roof of the mouth with a medium red color.  The taste dissipates quickly making it difficult to pick up significant traits, either good or bad, except for a long lingering warmness in the mouth and beyond.  Most importantly at this price, there’s nothing wrong with the wine.  Especially if you’re in the habit of drinking wine with meals, this is a good inexpensive $4.99 red wine to accompany an everyday meal.
