I've been rather busy the last couple weeks and have sorely neglected my blog. Luckily, I did some cooking and such during that time, so there's a lot of good stuff coming soon here!
As for today, I know it's Thursday, but it's high time we got another Cheap Wine of the Week on the site. This one was a wine we had a few weeks ago that I picked up at Trader Joe's on a whim.
It's the 2008 Novella Synergy red. It's a blend of Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, and Sangiovese. 4 out of those 5 grapes are favorites of mine, so I was feeling pretty good about it when I looked at the label. But at $6.99, I wasn't convinced it would actually taste good.
Luckily, it didn't take long for the convincing to happen. With a little breathing time in the glass while I set up dinner, this wine was awesome. A good nose, though nothing too strong, and a nice full bodied mouth with a yummy fruit-filled finish. I was very pleased. Brad liked it too.
Especially for the price, this is a classic Cheap Wine of the Week.
