Costco Wine Picks: Feb. 23, 2015

FIND THESE JONES IS THIRSTY-APPROVED GEMS IN THE COSTCO WINE DEPARTMENT:

• 2009 Altamira de los Andes, Reserve Malbec, Argentina $20

(Tanzer 91 pt., This rich Malbec from the Andes foothills is totally worth the splurge…and particularly tasty when paired with, say, braised short ribs—just sayin’.)

• 2011, Gérard Bertrand, Syrah/Grenache Blend, France $10

(WS 90 pt., The 201o was one of my top under $12 picks last year, and the 2011 edition is setting up to be just as good. Grab a rack of barbecue ribs, kick back and relax.)

• 2009, Carmine, Monastrell, Spain $10

(WA 90 pt., The Monastrell grape is also known as Mourvèdre in France, where it’s often found in Rhône Valley red blends. The full-bodied gem is made for roasted/grilled lamb chops or a juicy ribeye steak.)

• 2012, Domaine A’Dair, Sancerre, France $15

(100% Sauvignon Blanc from France’s Loire Valley. One of my favorite wines with raw oysters, boiled shrimp and crab salad.)

    Thanks for the recommendation! Definitely trying some of these! We are wanting to explore some non- US wines so this is perfect.
