Wine Wednesday: Redtree Pinot Grigio

Happy Wine Wednesday, everyone!  Remember last week when I wrote about Total Wine, the awesome giant wine, beer and liquor store?  Well, there is ANOTHER store here in Arizona (and California) similar to that called BevMo! (That wasn't an unnecessary exclamation point, it is actually part of the name of the store).  We went here for the first time last weekend when we wanted to pick up a bottle of wine to bring to a party.  We happened to be there during their famous 5 cent wine sale.  The deal is that on certain wines when you buy one, you get another one for 5 cents.  Can't beat that!  I thought that their prices were generally higher than Total Wine, but when you factor in the 5 cent wine sale, you can get some pretty great deals.  One of the wines we picked up was this Redtree Pinot Grigio.

This is a great crisp wine that could be paired with lighter foods.  It has some fruity tones to it, but nothing overt.  There is also a teeny bit of oak in there somewhere, but it is subtle.  I am not a fan of oak at all, and it doesn't bother me.

This is a pretty good, mild wine that I would recommend, particularly because it is in the under $10 category.  The regular price on this is $8-10, but since we got it on sale we got 2 for $10 - really, you can't get a good wine for less than that.

Wine:  Redtree Pinot Grigio
Year: 2011

Pin It!

Well, they have to lure you here with something. "Yes, the desert is actively trying to kill you, but we have 5 cent wine!!!"
