2011 Pinoylet Garnacha

2011 Pinoylet Garnacha

2011 Pinoylet GarnachaA nice buy on this Spanish Garnacha for only $10.79 at Costco.  It seems like these inexpensive Spanish reds just keep rolling into Costco stores, which is a great opportunity for us.  I really don’t think there are many other reds for $10 that taste this good.  This wine isn’t going to redefine everything you know about wine.  But it will make you think twice before you grab that $10 Sonoma cab that isn’t half as good.

I get a lot of dried fruit on the nose.  The wine is a 2011 so it has a little age on it.  In the mouth, this wine is pretty simple and straightforward but pleasant in its delivery.  Flavors of red cherry, strawberry licorice, raspberry; the wine tastes fresh and clean; finish is very nice for an inexpensive wine, sticking with you a bit longer than comparable wines.

The only word to really describe this wine is pleasant.  The price is pleasant.  The wine is pleasant.  A solid Costco buy here. Rating: 87 Points
