2006 Epicuro Nero D'Avila

Trader Joe's comes up with a few winners and after reading about this one in this month's Fearless Flyer I decided I needed to try it. Based on the description I had higher hopes than the $5.99 price tag would have led me to believe but this is one of those winners.

A bit light but still a full nose of berries; raspberries, blueberries and blackberries along with some fuller aromas such as you might experience at a winery at crush. In other words a nice fresh fruit nose with flavors enough to standup to the fennel pollen crusted pork tenderloin I made this evening with enough backbone while not so much as to overpower the subtlety of the pollen on the meat. It does what nice little number should do and that's enhance and compliment the food choices.

This is very nice and far superior to many bottles 2 and 3 times the price. Check it out...
