2008 Odipus Old Vines Grenache

2008 Odipus Old Vines Grenache

2008 Odipus Old Vines GrenacheHere’s a stunner for only $8.49.  This might be one of the best value priced wines I’ve seen at Costco this year. The bottle is affixed with a big red band on the top to show off its 91 point Parker score, and in this case I think Parker was right on the money.

Smells and tastes at first like a Pinot Noir, and a younger one at that.  But where this wine really excels is when it has a chance to open up mid-palate and to the finish. There’s a lot going on here for a wine that is only $8.49.

That depth is partially hidden by an appearance that is a light, see through red.  Once this wine gets going that young ripe fruit grips your taste buds, and with some nice acidity, this wine really takes hold. Flavors are more dark fruit and blueberry with hints of leather on the finish.  The finish here is superb and completely memorable for an inexpensive Grenache.

I don’t think I’ve ever had anything quite like this for under $9. A nice change of pace and a good light red for summertime drinking. Rating: 90 Points

Costco item number: 865292

I've entered the name of this wine by name and by item number every way I know how to do it into the website and every time I receive an error message "item not found". What's up with that?

Additionally, how do I find which Costco locations carry this wine, specifically stores in San Diego, La Mesa and Santee, CA.

I have 5 Costco stores in the vicinity (bay area), all of them carry slightly different verity, some of the wines quite unique per location and not found anywhere else. Also half of the stuff reviewed here is not available in my stores, so that makes it a hella treasure hunt.

I just double checked my receipt for the Atlanta area Costco where I bought this wine and the item number was correct. The problem is that Costco inventory will vary across different stores across the country. I'm not sure if there is a good way online to search. Calling the store may be the best bet. Also, our reviewer Michael is located in San Diego and buys his wines there so I would imagine you would be able to find most of those. But like anything at Costco, the wine can be there one day gone the next.
