A blogger friend recommended I try this wine and see what I thought. I truly love a great blend and had very high hopes for another great Kirkland wine.
Alas, I am disappointed.
The nose on first whiff is fruity, lots of Merlot fragrances. Very bright and inviting. I can also sense the deep dark plumminesso fthe Cab Sauv. Though upon tasting, the fruit fades to the background and mostly what I get is alcohol . . . 14.9% alcohol to be exact. That intensity sweeps away what might have been a wonderful option for a daily drinker.
