BHC Swill: Found Object

Found Object Carmenere from Trader Joe's

Where have you been all my life?

First, the name made me smile. “Found Object.” Clever. But since it was part of a large display in the aisle of Trader Joe’s, it wasn’t hard to find.

Secondly, it’s a Carmenere. No idea what that’s supposed to be.

Thirdly, nobody working at the time had tried it. None of the checkers, not the manager, not my go-to wine guy. So this Found Object was a complete mystery.

I like a good mystery as much as the next gal. I procured. Here’s the verdict:

Decent, in a bright and shiny sorta way. A little fruity on the palate, and a few snarly tannins, but what do you expect from a $6.99 wine?  Overall, however, I found this Found Object to be quite drinkable.

Come to find out, a Carmenere is the Chilean signature grape. And come to find out, about a month later, that the crew at my Trader’s seems to prefer the Found Object Syrah. Hmm. Well, I’ll tackle that mystery next time then.

For now, I’m glad I Found this Object. Try it. You might be glad you stumbled upon it too. Let me know what you think.
