Wine on a Dime

Let me preface my first wine post by saying I'm not going to use the following words in my postings regarding wines:   jammy, legs, bouquet, flabby, spicy, woody or tannic among others.  This is due, in part, by the price point of the wines I will be judging, and also because I just want to keep it real.

Whenever I walk into a liquor store, I grapple with making the decision:  beer or wine.  Having lived in the Bay Area has made me love wine.  Being a dude has made me love beer.  I've usually gone for beer based on the price point but, to even the playing field, I've decided to venture into the $15 and under wine category.

Let's start things off with a phenomenally-valued vino.  Even though Trader Joe's is best known for it's Two-Buck Chuck, I recently discovered this great wine for only $6.   It rivals any $15-$20 bottle of wine and, because of its price, you can bring 3 bottles of it to a dinner party instead of 1.  That means 3X the fun.  I would choose the 2008 Trentatre Rosso all day over a six-pack.
