Jon says... Don't Buy

Not every $4 bottle at Trader Joe’s can be a winner. It tastes “flat”... there is some acidity, but no real fruit flavors to make it tasty. Maybe the grapes weren’t ripe enough or maybe this it was made from the left over juice after bottling their more expensive label. It’s not flawed, but it’s boring.

If you like carbonated grape juice than this is the wine for you! While I’m a huge fan of vinho verde, this one is quite bland. The acidity is off balance and the flavors are flat. While it’s superbly easy to drink, it doesn’t offer much at all. Best to save your $4 and put it towards a better bottle.
