Some friends and I were at a Costco yesterday and decided to try a few of the Kirkland brand wines. This was our first attempt, it cost $11 and is a blend of 49% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% each Cab Franc and Petit Verdot. I took some basic notes:
Plummy with oak and currants.
Young and fresh, with hints of eucalyptus and oregano
At this price point it is a very serviceable party wine that won’t disappoint. It could use another year of cellaring and drink till 2019. 3 stars from me. Salut….
