Joseph Handler Sweet Red

Wine: Joseph Handler Sweet Red
Store: Trader Joe's
Price: $3.99
" Joseph Handler Sweet Red, produced from the native Dornfelder grade, combines luscious flavors of raspberry and plum with silky tannins and delicate sweetness. Serve slightly chilled." ~Back of the bottle

I don't know why I purchased this wine...I keep thinking that I'll like sweet reds, and invariably, I do not. This is very fruity-the raspberry flavors are particularly pronounced. This wine is also very smoky, which makes for an interesting combination. It's ok for a sweet red wine, but certainly not something I'd seek out again.

Rating: 2 out of 5 stars

Always buy this wine and love it! Trader Joe's used to sell it but not lately.
