Les Caves Joseph

Trader Joes sells an inexpensive Bordeaux Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon blend called :Les Caves Joseph.  I've seen this sold for as low as $4 a bottle, and as high as $6 a bottle over the last three years.  It's pretty good.  It's not awesome, but for the low price, it is fine table wine.  Over the years, I've had probably a dozen bottles altogether, and the quality has ranged from drinkable to very good.  Imported by Plume Ridge Claremont CA, and produced by negotiant (Mis en bouteille par) Adrien Bertaillan 33360 France, and shipped by Ginestet Carignan-de-Bordeaux.  "Serve at room temperature with roasted or grilled beef, lame, or game."  I've not served it with game, but have had it with beef and lamb.  Les Caves Joseph can serve as a good 2nd bottle at a large dinner, or just as a everyday table wine.  Enjoy.
