With a name like Wine 4 Grilling, one might not expect very much. In fact, this Trinchero boxed wine is very drinkable. It’s a deep red color, and offers very juicy black cherry flavor with mild tannins in the finish. This wine is a fine red for a pool party or barbecue. It favors Zinfandel and Merlot, leading to its fruity character and soft finish. It’s a very gulpable wine.

Oddly, the Trinchero Family Estates website doesn’t seem to mention Wine 4 Grilling. Trinchero has a very diverse stable of brands, including Bandit (found in Tetra Pak packaging), Sutter Home, Terra d’Oro, Newman’s Own, Joel Gott, and Little Boomey.

The Good, The Bad, The Marty said of this wine, “The Wine 4 Grilling is good for more than just backyard barbecue. Despite it having almost no nose (it could be my allergies), it’s surprisingly drinkable… It’s perfect for everyday drinking.” Shannon Welch speculates on Facebook, “The rumor is, that Wine 4 Grilling is actually the Menage a Trois blend… in a box!” The Wine Curmudgeon wasn’t a big fan, saying it was “too fruity with an unpleasant charred, oaky flavor.”

All in all, Trinchero Wine 4 Grilling 2009 is a pleasant wine, fine for everyday drinking and patio parties. Above all, it’s in the same per-bottle price as the ultra-cheap bottle wines, and is a great value.
