Yummy Trader Joes Find!

Looking for a nice Tuesday night wine? Then you should check out Cocobon 2010 California Red Wine, which is exclusively at Trader Joe’s. It is around $7 and is very satisfying. In fact, I think it is even better the next day after it has gotten some air into it… if it lasts that long that is! It is a blend composed largely of Zinfandel (60% or so), and the grapes it is made from come from all over California. The best part is, being an ALL Things Livermore enthusiast, that it is vinted & bottled here in Livermore at the Cocobon Cellers, which is part of Underdog Wine Merchants. There is a large berry aroma on the nose and is very fruity, but is not overwhelming thanks to a slight tannin on the finish.  A very enjoyable mid-week or weekend, party pleaser-type wine.

Last weekend we enjoyed it with my home-made chili. I hope you enjoy them both too! Click the link below to get the recipe!
