Wine Deal Alert - Trader Joe's

Lord Lipitor | Nov 19, 2002 11:58 AM

Just tried something called Wildwater Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2000 from Trader Joe's (Studio City Branch). At the risk of being mocked by America's funniest man (Calvin Trillin), I thought this $4.99 bottling from Sonoma's well known Benziger Vineyard (unlike most discount wines at TJ's, this one spells out the provenance on the label) tasted like a $20 plus vintage with plenty of Northern California cabernet character and complexity. Went out and bought eight more bottles (I don't do more than that out of boredom fear). Other hounds should try it and tell me if I'm crazy.
