2009 Kirkland Signature Cabernet Sauvignon

Kirkland Signature Cabernet Sauvignon.

To date, outside of a red blend, I haven’t been a fan of Cab Sauv.  This little beauty may be changing my mind.  Immediately the bouquet hits me with marionberry, plums and strawberries.  All that mixed with some earthy tones I can’t quite pick out, but juicy and wonderful.  The flavor is warm and jammy with tannins that are soft, but a bit tight at the finish.  Overall, very nice.

Because I am such a fan of blends, my initially thought was, “a bit of Merlot would really softens those rough edges”.  I’m just a wannabe winemaker I guess.

Try it, I think you will enjoy it.

Costco carries several Cab Sauvs and I think I want to try this one next.
