Wine on Wednesday: Memento

January 16, 2013 Food No Comments

I have a new daily drinker. Memento.


For over a year, when I was drinking at home, I drank nothing but Cocobon. And while it is delicious and something I still drink, my new go-to is this fun blend.

My requirements for a good daily drinker:

* <$10/bottle
* does not need food to be palatable (low tannins, generally)
* available at Trader Joe’s — I do 99% of my shopping there

Memento sells at Trader Joe’s for $6.99, which is the same price that Cocobon sells for. In fact, they are right next to each other on the shelf at my local TJ’s.

It is a blend made up of 86% syrah and 14% grenache, so no harsh tannins. Yum! Plus, the fun check-the-box label is inviting you to share it with friends.

Do you drink daily like I do? What are you drinking?
