An organic red blend find from Trader Joe’s, the Owl’s Lair Mendocino County Red Wine by DNA Vineyards.
The Owl’s Lair Mendocino County Red Wine is available exclusively at Trader Joe’s for just $8.99.
The owl plays a significant role in organic grape farming by targeting vineyard pests at night and carrying the prey back to their lairs to feed their families.
This wine is dark as night, blended from Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah grapes grown on organically farmed, premium vineyard sites in Mendocino County. Bold, dark chocolate notes in the mouth with a rich, persistent finish. Bring some back to your lair and enjoy!
The 2014 Owl’s Lair Mendocino County Red Wine from DNA Vineyards begins with a big and inviting blackberry aroma laced with nice touches of baking spice. Tasting the wine shows lots more jammy blackberry and plum fruit wrapped up in soft tannins and a smooth texture. It’s just a bit on the sweet side, which will make it a great one for fans of the big-name, inexpensive California red blends which mostly tend to lean this way. Hints of chocolate come forward mid-palate and lead into the long, dry finish.
