In preparation for a Napa trip where we'll be doing a TON of tastings, the wife and I decided we need to start "training" (i.e. drink a tone more wine than we do). And wouldn't you know it, this weekend we opened up a bottle from Trader Joe's that was pretty tasty the first night, but after pumping it and coming back to it two days later, was simply awesome! So the wife and I will be doing a whirlwind tour of TJ's and I'll post up the ones that seem to us like good bargains. Also ones that should be avoided at all cost! And we're limiting ourselves to less than $10 and only bottles that we've never seen anywhere else. No Bogles, StoneHedge's etc.
Anybody want to kick this off with some recommendations for wines to try out?
