It is truly delicious.
If you want the best wine deal of your life, run, do not walk, to the nearest Target. In late August the store introduced California Roots, a line of $5 bottles of wine, and they’re finally available.
The line, which includes a red blend, cabernet, pinot grigio, chardonnay, and moscato, doesn’t disappoint. It’s honestly hard to believe that they’re all only $5, and I’m going to have a difficult time paying more than that for a bottle of wine ever again.
Here they are, ranked by deliciousness, plus what you should know about each bottle:
1. Red Blend
One sip of this red blend, and you’ll be thinking, There’s no way this is only $5. It’s smooth with cherry notes and a hint of spice. Fair warning: This is a very dark red that stains easily. If you’re going to drink it, I hope you have some Wine Wipes.
This cabernet is juicy AF with a flavor profile of cherry, vanilla, and toasted oak. It tastes like a cozy fall night — and also like an expensive wine you would only drink if you were out to dinner with your parents.
This traditional California chardonnay has a crisp and oaky finish. Its aroma is filled with creamy peaches, fruit, and apples.
After chugging bags of moscato in college I thought I’d never find one I’d be OK with drinking ever again. This wine proved me wrong. It’s sweet but not overbearing and has a delicious aroma of creamy peach and melon flavors.
5. Pinot Grigio
The California Roots pinot grigio tasted sweeter than the brand’s moscato, so if you like sweet, grab a bottle of this. It’s fruity with pear and peach aromas.
