The Rose & Finch California Red Wine 2021 is a $3.49 Trader Joe’s exclusive made for them by Fior di Sole a family-owned Napa wine company that makes its own brands, produces custom brands, bottles wine, you name it they can probably do it. A quick check of their brand’s page shows several wines I consider bargains sold at Trader Joe’s.

Rose & Finch California Red Wine 2021

The Rose & Finch California Red Wine 2021 is priced exceedingly low, the Fearless Flyer mentions elegant tannins, balanced oak, and mocha and vanilla flavors which come from some sort of oak aging. $3.49 wines are rarely elegant or have budgets that will allow for some manner of oak influence.

This is also a 2021 vintage (this is being written in December of 2023) and while that isn’t particularly old it is for a wine at this price, time is money and there is no budget for extra time. Trader Joe’s says this Red is available for a limited time, so this deal is over when the wine sells out.

2 Buck Chuck is produced to sell for $2.99 and even $3.99 in some markets, with a little luck the Rose & Finch California Red Wine 2021 was made to sell for more, but for some reason is selling at close-out prices. The alcohol content is 13%.

The Rose & Finch California Red Wine 2021 Tasting Notes

The color is a dark barely see-through black cherry red. The nose does show oak aging, there is oak spice, vanilla, a dark chocolate, along with cherry, spice, plum, and a little smoke, pretty solid for a $3.49 wine. The Rose & Finch California Red Wine 2021 is on the lighter side, but the flavors are ripe and tasty.

This Red Blend tastes like cherry, a light slap of spice, licorice, juicy plum, cranberry, a little cedar, and blood orange. There isn’t a mid-palate what is upfront goes all the way through the wine. The tannins are supple and the acidity is well-balanced. A solid effort for a $3.49 wine.

The Summary

  • The Rose & Finch California Red Wine 2021 drinks well above its price point.
  • It is a lighter-bodied wine and is not overly complex, but it does taste good.
  • This would make an excellent Holiday party wine, with 6 bottles being under $12 (before tax).
  • The Rose & Finch California Red Wine 2021 would make an excellent base for party Sangria, add oranges, apples, and cinnamon sticks and let it all mingle for several hours and your guests will be very happy.
