Every week I am going to try and recommend a mid-week wine that is priced under $15. It’s going to be an everyday wine that you can pick up somewhere like Trader Joe’s in hopes that it gives you a lot of good wine for an affordable everyday wine price. Maybe it will even help relieve your mid-week stress:)
This week I am opening up a bottle of Hogue Genesis 2007 Meritage from Columbia Valley. I picked it up last week at Trader Joe’s as it was on display in the wine section. This Meritage is a blend of 49% Merlot, 44% Cab, 6% Malbec, and 1% Cab Franc. This Washington wine is priced at $7.99 and has a 14.4% alcohol content.
The wine pours dark garnet and has aromas of dark cherry, blackberry and earthy spice. It tastes of cherries, oak, and spice and finishes long with nice, smooth tannins. I enjoyed the Genesis Meritage and I think it’s a nice buy for $7.99. I am not sure how long Trader Joe’s will have this wine but I recommend picking up a bottle while it’s in stock. Let me know what you think of my Wednesday Wine pick. Cheers!
