A ripe and jammy red blend from Carinena, Spain at a great Costco price. We review the Esteban Martin Garnacha Syrah.
A blend of 60% Garnacha and 40% Syrah from vines aged 20-65 years old in the gravelly soils of Carinena, Spain. The wine is vegan friendly.
We found this one for just $4.99 at Costco, but it is also available elsewhere for around $10. It is imported by Tri-Vin Imports.
From the bottle:
This wine is an expression of great vineyards and represents the passion and hard work of the family and a profound respect for nature.
Produced and Bottled by Bodegas Esteban Martin
The 2021 Esteban Martin Garnacha Syrah opens with very ripe, sweet and jammy aromas of fleshy red and black fruit with a touch of spice.
The wine tastes smooth and not as sweet as I was expecting from the nose, but it's definitely not totally dry. It has a bit more structure than I was expecting too, especially at just $4.99.
Juicy fruit and a little bit of spiciness lead into the dry, grippy finish.
This is a nice little wine for just 5 bucks! It might make a nice pairing with a cheeseburger and it was even a bit better on day 2.
