Wines for the New Depression: Trader Joe's Zinfandel

This is Tader Joe's house label Zinfandel. It is available for a limited time only. It is made wholly of organically grown grapes and quaffable in a very good way. I call it Zinfandel lite.

It does not have the heavy dense fruity head you might find in a Rosenblum but it does have a nice juicy taste and a bit of the spice one associates with these wines.

With a bit of Chinatown duck it was quite tasty, a bit of acid to cut through the fattiness and a nice finish on the palate.

Trader Joe's second entry in the Wines for the New Depression series is a nice Wednesday night wine.
