Sam Lipp blind-tastes all eight Charles Shaw wines
This is pretty funny:
They obviously didn't taste the Charles Shaw Chardonnay that won a gold medal at the California State Fair a year or so ago. Not that I really think it would have made a difference.
On the other hand, the last stat I saw was that Trader Joe's sells something North of 15 million cases of this stuff each year. So......... who are we to judge?
