2015 Kirkland Cabernet Sauvignon – Merlot

IMG_20170512_114417A 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.

So sad.
