Flying Heart Red Wine 2011

Trader Joe’s, $4.99
Suggested by Jim, Trader Joe’s “wine guy”

Aaron:  I got a lot of boysenberry from this wine.  It had a light smell but was very fruity and a bit tart on the nose.  The flavor was extremely sweet with lots of very ripe fruit, making it very easy to drink and almost a dessert wine.  There was no spice or earth, nothing really except berries so it wasn’t very complex but it tasted good and would be great for new wine drinkers.  88 points

Teri: Bottled in Napa Valley, this red is slightly sweet but not overpowering. Carrying flavors of plum, jam, and blackberries, it’s smooth flavor is not overly complex and pairs great with BBQ.  89 points
