Owl's Lair Mendocino County Red Wine 2011

Trader Joe's February Fearless Flyer features Owl's Lair Mendocino County Red Wine 2011 for $8.99.  The wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah crafted from grapes grown in organic vineyards.  It is described as "dark hued and richly flavored, with round, robust berry notes".    I agree with that description but I also found it to be sweet and that diminished my enjoyment of the wine.   If you enjoy a sweeter wine such as Apothic Red, you will really like this, but otherwise you should save your money.

SC Wine Joe rating = 87 points.
