Trader Joe wine #7 Fife

We've had this one in the past and I remember liking it then as well.  We had the 2007 Max Cuvee (another blend of 5 grapes) from the Fife vineyards in Hopland California.  This wine contains the following grapes:
  • Petite Verdot
  • Syrah
  • Petite Sirah
  • Grenache
  • Carignane
Last time we had this wine, we shared it with friends so it only lasted one night as where this time, we allowed it sit out over night.  The second night it was just okay in my opinion.  It tasted really thin and watery to me the second night. Firefly just said she thought it was better the first time around as well...our advice,  save it for a night with friends or a night when you both need two glasses!
