wine friday: green barn red field blend.
I’m not kidding. I think the wine guy at Trader Joes is playing a joke on me and switched up the prices on his wines.
- This week’s red blend is organic.
- It has an alcohol content of 14.5%. 14.5%!
- It was so good I kind of opened it on Wednesday…shoot.
Wait ’til you see what I paid for it.
According to its label, “This field blend shows classic Mencodoino County character with ripe black cherry and white pepper flavors. Our wine’s supple mouth-feel and velvety tannins lend itself well to pairing with heavier country fare, red meats, and grilled dishes.”
I paid $4.99.
On the reals.
Seriously, if you are in on this joke you have to let me know. I’ll be quite disappointed but I think I’ll recover, eventually.
