twin fin 2005 California Shiraz
Twin Fin-a $5.99 bottle of California Shiraz that I buy from Trader Joes. You can also find it in BevMo and Cost Plus World Market (three of my favorite places to shop for decent priced wines!)
Twin Fin is nothing fancy-but a very drinkable everyday Shiraz. Not too heavy but not watered down and nasty. It says it has flavors of blackberry, red raspberry and freshly cracked pepper-ok I just taste the blackberries...maybe you're palette can decipher the different flavors. I've bought many bottles of this wine-it doesn't have a cork-twist cap-so it should keep longer than most. It's a good everyday wine-if you have a special occasion some people might freak out by the twist cap-even though more and more wineries are going to this.
If you don't want to spend a lot of money but want a decent tasting glass of wine from two fun winemakers give twin fin a chance. They pride themselves on not being typical winemakers. For $5.99 it's a pretty darn good bottle of wine!
And NO- the $5.99 isn't on the label-I did that so i wouldn't forget!! But it's a nice looking label-and you know what-sometime the label is what catches your eye first! I know it does mine!
