2018 Mosquita Muerta Pispi Blend de Tintas

2018 Mosquita Muerta Pispi Blend de Tintas

We dropped this one in the cart just for purposes of exploration for this site. We’ve never seen or tasted this Argentinean red blend before.

On the placard you’ll see the 92 points the wine received from Wine Advocate. We couldn’t find a true retail price for the bottle. Online it really varies but most outlets seem to have it in the $20 range so $15 at Costco seems like a good buy.

Pispi Red Blend

The blend here is Malbec (40%), Cabernet Franc (10%), Merlot (10%), Petit Verdot (20%) and Bonarda (20%). We aren’t always fans of these types of blends, but every once in a while you come across a gem, and that’s exactly what we found here.

The wine pours a dark ruby in the glass with spicy, earthy nose of red and dark fruit; more red and dark fruit flavor in the mouth; cherry, raspberry and blueberry; slight pepper note in the finish.

Pispi Red Blend

This is a really well made blend that came together quite nicely. We like this one a lot, and will even add to our Top Picks list with a 90 point rating. It’s just a good, solid versatile red at a fair price. Gotta love that.

I am a fan of these blends (they had me with Bonarda!) and this one is delicious.

Correction to comment below. It should say “now” not No.

No, if only our Costcos in the Twin Cities MN area would pick up on and carry some of these wines that you have found. Frustrating.

Hopefully soon you'll get to try the new Kirkland Signature Napa red blend. It's amazing, one of the best Kirkland wines to date.
