Any good Trader Joe's wines lately?

Want to make a trip to Trader Joe's and stock up on some wines. I'm thinking white. I bought a nice Italian white last time I was there for, I think $4.99 or so. It was very good...sorry I didn't buy more.
Who's gotten some good buys from TJs? I've been through all the "Chuck" and don't care for it.
Has anyone bought a good petite sirah? I'd like to fill up my wine racks. Nothing too expensive..talking everyday wines here.

    Good! You're on the right path.

    1. Estancia & Firestone Chards. in the $8 -10 range are dependably good and available. Wild Horse Merlot at about $ 9 a fair buy.

      1. A Cabarnet Savignon, Santa Rita (from Chile I think), $10.99

        1. I picked up a couple for Wine Blogging Wednesday last week.
          An absolute steal was Ulrich Langguth Riesling (Germany) for only $5.99, and the Trimbach Alsace Riesling for $15.99 was also delicious (light and crisp, and similar to a Sav Blanc).

            Are these rieslings dry or off-dry? Thanks!

          2. Try the Bogle Petite Sirah. I think TJs sells it for $7, but may be mistaken.
