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.
