Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: “VINO” THE REPORT’S WINE LIST
What you see above is one of my favorite Red Wines to sip from time to time either by itself or with a meal. Bare in mind that I am by no means a wine expert I simply select wines that I like in their taste and finish, sweetness and/or dryness level.
Sitting at home while R&B pulses in the background and a glass full of this smooth Joseph Handler Sweet Red stares at me. I stare back as it invites me out of the cold of this persistent wintry weather that gives one reason to disbelieve it’s officially Spring 2013.
Simply put, this is an excellent tasting wine in my humble opinion. It can be had any time. It’s not too sweet, and for myself has the perfect balance of smoothness and fruitiness to it. This is a must try. On the back of the bottle it says “produced from the native Dornfelder grape, combines luscious flavors of raspberry and plum with silky tannins and delicate sweetness. Serve lightly chilled.” I love that they give all that info right on the bottle and wondered how come more wine producers don’t do this. An accurate description on the label I think gives the consumer better info and therefore increases the likelihood of purchase if you can determine it’s content, and basically what you can expect the experience to be.
My experience with that glass of wine I think says it all. Good down to the last drop. You can pick this up for around $7 a bottle at Trader Joe’s. Excellent and Inexpensive. Stay tuned for more of Vino…Wine List selections. Up next Riesling. As always your selections and or comments are welcome. Till next time this has been Vino…The Wine List by THEJNSREPORT.
