2003 Red Flyer Red Table Wine

Looking at this winery’s site, they apparently have an exclusive distribution deal with Trader Joe’s...however, we bought this one at a small wine shop in the area.

Blackberry and oak on the nose.

Plums, blackberry, and blueberry for fruit on the palate with plenty of oak and firm, though smooth tannins. A fair amount of spice–anise, cinnamon, even some basil

The finish has some plums and fades away with a hint of anise remaining.

Fruit and oak give it a nice balance, but there’s not a lot of depth–which isn’t necessarily a bad thing and is to be expected at a $9 range wine. If this really is a Trader Joe’s exclusive, it's one of the better ones we've had.
