With notes of cherry, plum, and oak.

A very good Pinot Noir and an excellent value. After I tried one bottle i went back and bought 4 more.

So bad don’t waste your money’I have a glass and a half and tossed the rest of it, I guess Trader Joe’s don’t have a wine taster

A chef friend gave me a bottle to try, we found it was smooth, deep notes of plum and cherry, great depth of flavor. I expected the price to be somewhere around $30, imagine my shock when I learned Trader Joe’s carries it exclusively for $7.99 here in Florida! I’m heading over tomorrow to buy a case…

Retained it’s structure with pronounced fruit. Very smooth too & opens nicely.

Wine is subjective and I must agree with the comment from Leslie. It was a waste of money—especially since it was recommended over a more expensive wine that I knew. To me Moon X is terrible with a strange aftertaste and bears no resemblance to qualities of the pinot noir. The good thing is that I now know a recommendation from this employee is not what I’m looking for and that’s ok

Excellent wine. It is not a French style wine. None the less very well made and would be great with steak or any beef dish. I give it a four and and half out of five.

Living near several wineries, I’ve become somewhat finicky with my wine. I tried this on a whim (it was only $7, why not?) and went back for 2 more bottles. Delicious.

Someone brought this along to a Christmas party I hosted a month ago. I work in the beer industry. Don’t get me wrong – I love beer. But if/when I drink at home, it’s usually wine. And I was in the mood for a glass of wine with my fancy dinner earlier (steamed green beans with a dash of garlic powder and salt… like I said – fancy), so I grabbed this from my cellar (a really cold closet where I keep the beer I age, and my wine, and my Christmas decorations).
I gave the wine a swirl, and it smelled fantastic. And then, it was delicious – sweet but not cloyingly so, dry, very easy-drinking. It was so delicious that I immediately searched for it because I was curious how much it would set me back and was fully expecting to be pissed off because I couldn’t regularly afford it. Any other red wine I’ve had that was this genuinely enjoyable has always been unattainably priced for me.
NOPE. All the Google had to show me was website after website all proclaiming that this wine is a Trader Joe’s wine.
I am happy. Trader Joe’s, you are the sh*t.

Excellent! A friend of mine gave me the bottle in a gift basket. So tasty! Definitely will purchase more – love TJs!

A definite favorite. Smooth, deep and ready to drink at $7.99. Have found many very good wines at Trader Joe’s. At their prices, half the fun is searching for nice wines.
Not that bad
