Trader Joe’s Reserve Syrah #100

Pass On This Nasty Syrah From Paso

Trader Joe's Syrah #100

Staff Wine Review –

Not Good Booze. Nasty.

Syrahs are some of the best wines to go with grilled meats and the Paso area grows great grapes and great wines are made there. This one is not one of them at all. At this price, it would be wonderful if it was. Or even if it was just an OK one. But no. Leave this on the shelf. It’s just nasty and disappointing.
