Tres Pinos Three Pines Cuvee Red Wine 2010

Trader Joe’s, $4.99

Aaron: I was a little turned off by the smell of this Cuvee, which was dull and bitter with particularly earthy notes of plants.  To say the least, this tasted ten times better than it smelled.  There was still a hint of dull earthiness, but not as potent as the smell.  The swallow had a certain burning bite to it coupled with an intense raspberry flavor.  This definitely needs a strong dish to pair with and in my opinion is a little too harsh.  86 points

Teri: This three times cuvee from the San Luis Obispo contains a slight jammy flavors and with strong organic woody and earthy nodes. A hit of red fruits and dark berries is followed by bold and strong tannins. 87 points
