Massive bargain here. Great wine at an amazing price. For anyone who’s ever written to me and said they can’t find the wines we review at their local Costco, I really hope you can find them all someday, but I really really hope you can find this one. At only $13.89 at Costco, it is half the price you will find it at other outlets. If you live in Atlanta you better move fast, because I’ve likely scooped them up already. This just became my go to red.
This is a single vineyard Malbec, that to me, and call me crazy, tastes like a Grand Cru St Emilion Bordeaux. I say that because I think wine reviews are really individual and personal. That’s how this one hit me; really good, firing on all cylinders.
Super dark on the pour with aromas that remind me of a fresh pair of sneakers, with a touch of earth and flower. Elegant in the mouth with flavors of blackberry, black licorice, a little sour cherry; good acidity, tannins are soft and the wine is drinking just perfectly right now; the finish is superb, lasting, sticky and multi dimensional.
This is one of the best buys I’ve found at Costco this year. I can’t believe the quality at this price. I could drink this with any mid-week meal or a special occasion and enjoy it just the same.
