The Gruet 2008 pinot noir from New Mexico is an incredible bargain. Gruet Winery in Albuquerque has been known and respected for their sparkling wines for many years. On a recent visit to Beverages & More (BevMo) we ran across the 2008 pinot and picked up a bottle. For one of the few times, the tasting notes on the Gruet website are right on the money: “focused black cherry, plum, anises and floral notes framed by light oak. It finishes with a pretty berry and mineral edge.”
Pricing is an issue. Although the Gruet website describes the 2008 vintage, the only prices listed are for the 2007. BevMo says the regular retail price is $25.99. But Club Bev members can buy this amazing wine for $17.41. Get yours now before they sell out!
