2008 Chariot Gypsy Red

Some weekends are not for the weak of heart, some wines aren’t either.  This weekend was not for the faint of heart and neither was the wine.  After being yelled at by our back yard neighbor for not cleaning up tree trimmings after our yearly backyard cleanup, Tool Time style, we realized we should break into this hearty red.  Trader Joe’s has a wine that was recommended to me by Diana Beuerman, a Bryersantis Newsletter subscriber.  The 2008 Chariot Gypsy red wine, a blend.   This is a hearty well-rounded red.  In this wine we taste red ruby plum, oak, clove, berry, and a hint of pepper.  A steal of a deal for under $6.  Again, this is not a weak red, but one that is full of flavor and earthiness.  If you like this style red, pick one up the next time you go to Trader Joe’s…..
