Marchigue Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva – 2013 – Trader Joe’s – Wine Review

09/20/2016 by

This is perhaps the best everyday wine I’ve had this year.

Not that it means much, but on opening the pop from the cork was almost up to champagne standards. There’s a very nice deep purple color on the cork which complements the deep red color of the wine.  The aroma is that of a full-bodied wine with fruity overtones.  The tannins leave a dryness in the mouth, but not very much.  No burn in the throat.  This is something one could sip on all evening.  Paired with an anchovy, Italian sausage, bacon pizza – it held its own.  Honestly however, this is one wine that should be and is worth drinking by itself.

Price – $7.99

Trader Joe’s – Apple Pie Cheddar Cheese – Food Review

No, the label has not been photoshopped.  The cheese has a strange taste to be sure.  There’s a little bit of apple taste at first followed by a mild cheese taste followed by a little bit of sting on the tongue.  The consistency is similar to a Muenster cheese, semi-soft and somewhat crumbly.  This is not unpleasant overall and certainly very interesting.  In fact after getting over expectations of what a cheese should be, it’s hard to stop eating.   This is sure to be a conversation starter at any gathering.  And if you’re by yourself, it’s likely to start a self-conversation.

ALDI – Casa Mamita – Salsa Con Queso – Medium – Food Review

Uniquely dippable, even straight out of the refrigerator, that’s what this product is.  Some might call it thin, but that depends on your needs and likes.  The consistency is almost as fluid when cold as at room temperature.  If you like your nachos hot, it also heats up well in the microwave on tortilla chips.  Little pieces of jalapeno in the yellow/orange cheese add the heat which is about right for the claimed medium rating on the label.  Unless you get a little piece of jalapeno, it’s not very spicy at all.

However, if you’d like to use this for cooking, read more.  Read the rest of this entry »

Trader Joe’s Lamb Vindaloo – Food Review

The rice is nice, not as nutty as I like.  The sauce is awesome, like a golf foursome.  The heat is neat, but will sweat your feet.

The first taste starts as a nice multiflavored tomato based sauce which fools you into a sense of complacency while the heat starts to build in the mouth over the next minute to a level that will have most people calling the nearest fire department. The rice actually tastes better after a mouthful of high heat and helps somewhat to mediate the fire in the mouth.  However, it’s best to have a glass of ice water around to help put out the fire.  Phew!
