The Wingman Shiraz and Block Chardonnay


This is a public service announcement: Both of these wines suck. Trader Joes has a way with taking really shitty wine and making it look like it might be cool. If anything, it's a fascinating experiment in marketing to the most evolved of chimps...or maybe the least. I suppose it depends on your perspective on the matter. Regardless, you'd do well to stay way the fuck away from these shitty wines, and buy something else instead. Might I recommend the 09 Valreas that TJ's is carrying for $6.99? It's pretty solid for $7.

I knew to stay away from the Wingman when I saw that it was a "Shiraz" from CA. Glad I trusted my intuition.

I work in advertising. I'm the lowest form of life there is.

And I work in purchasing, which means that I'm the nicest asshole you'll ever meet.

I used to be a recruitment consultant, before that I sold cars. Do I win on the lowlife contest?
