Trader Joe’s Coastal Syrah is a discount wine offered at the popular grocery retailer. You wouldn’t likely take a special trip to purchase this wine but might consider it the next time you’re completing your grocery shopping and need grab a wine for dinner. At a price under $5 you may consider picking up a few for later use.
This wine is produced in California using the coast cool weather to help create a riper taste. It isn’t a wine that you would first think of buying but would naturally be attracted to its price. I was as well as I am sure others. As a wine it isn’t the best or the worst I have tasted but fits nicely in the medium range.
The Nose: Jam high berry taste. A slight smell of ripeness.
The Mouth: Balanced, ripe berries, blackberry, tobacco, spice. Medium tannins.
The Glass: Medium to full body ruby red.
