TJs 2011 ZinTrader Joe’s everyday drinking wines like this 2011 Zinfandel are really a bargain and a huge plus they’re organic! There is a Zinfandel, a Merlot, a Cabernet Sauvignon, a Petite Sirah and a Chardonnay. They are a little more than the 3 buck Chuck but definitely worth it on many levels.

At $4.99 they are delicious and affordable. This Zin was rich, big and fruity. A well balanced and very palatable Zinfandel, with the finesse of a much more pricey bottle. Worth trying. they are a staple in my kitchen. I drink them and cook with them and feel greatĀ  because I know they are organic. Just makes me happy to think about it. Try it with a warming stew or soup. We have had this with cheese and a big salad and even marrow bones, so enjoyable. Sigh. Really great wine.


2011 TJ Chardonnay

Lovely Chardonnay, with a definite oakey smoothness. Flavorful notes of pineapple, apples, pears and warmth make this is a very nice wine. Once again it is organic, so that makes me doubly happy.

Great price for an organic wine and more complex than one would expect from a wine under 7 dollars.
