We’ve always been fans of Aquinas wines. The Aquinas Cabernet Sauvignon is consistently a winner and an amazing value at under $20 a bottle.
There was a double bonus here. First finding the Aquinas Pinot Noir at Costco was a treat; on top of that a huge price discount. Costco’s normal price of $15.89 is pretty good. And then they discounted it another $6 putting the wine under $10. Retail price on this bottle is $28, and it’s online elsewhere for $18.
The wine pours a pale ruby in the glass with spicy red fruit on the nose; it is medium in body; good flavor that packs a nice punch for a Pinot; flavors of raspberry, strawberry, pomegranate and a little cranberry bite with some acidity.
Finishes good; maybe would like to see it come together a bit more in the end.
But overall, lots to like from this offering, and the $9.89 price tag makes this an easy drop in the cart. Note that the special pricing ends 2/13.
