Red Wine

Alfredo Roca Pinot Noir 2012, San Rafael Mendoza, Argentina: The vines for this wine grow in the southernmost region of Mendoza, which has the cool climate needed to create balanced, quality pinot noir. Incredible Pinot for the money: you simply will not get a better tasting pinot at this price. Grab a case or five. Lovely fleshy ripe cherries. New World style. There's vanilla smoke, spice and blackberry on the finish. Try it with roast chicken for a juicy combination. Pair with: grilled pork tenderloin, grilled salmon. Drink: 2013-2016. 32979 13.30% XD 750 mL  $14.95 Score: 89/100. January 18, 2014 Best Value Red Wine. Smart Buy Wine Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
