Wednesday Wine Pick from Trader Joe’s- Lost Sonnet 2007 Meritage

I did have to work during my trip to Northern California and I found myself in a Trader Joe’s in Fairfield, CA looking for an inexpensive bottle of wine to keep me company in my hotel room.  After perusing the wine selection, I grabbed a bottle of Lost Sonnet Meritage.  For $9.99 I was hoping it would be a great find for my midweek wine pick.

About the Wine- From the Winery

Lost Sonnet 2007 Meritage is a blend of 58% Cabernet, 22% Merlot, and 20% Cabernet Franc from Napa Valley.  It has 14.5% alcohol and retails for $9.99. 

Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine

Lost Sonnet has a nose of dark berries, vanilla, and warm spices.  It immediately makes me want to sit next to a crackling fire (it’s summer I know).  This Meritage tastes of cranberries, dark cherries, dark chocolate and spices.  It’s a really nice wine for the price with an interesting flavor profile.  I definitely recommend trying a bottle and I may even cellar one or two for the winter when it’s actually cold enough to enjoy next to the fireplace.
