Esteban Martin Garnacha Syrah, 2021

This wine sells elsewhere for $10 to $14 a bottle, but I saw it several weeks ago for $4.99 at my local Costco store. I find it a great value.

Deep and dark. 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah, and the wine is a good expression of both grapes. Red berry Grenache, black fruit Syrah. Some blue plums on the palate and black pepper spice on the finish. Ripe, forward fruit but with some firm tannins from the Syrah. Drinks well with or without food. And even though it goes down very well right now, I think it will also imprive with a few years in the bottle. For $4.99, a steal.
