Kirkland Signature Series Napa Valley 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Review


We continue to purchase and try good quality wines from Costco under the Kirkland Signature label. This new Cabernet is no exception to the quality. This was made available a few weeks ago in our local Costco. It is a really deep Cabernet with intense fruit flavors. The black fruit with chocolate, spice and a hint of vanilla were evident from the first taste. Open this bottle and let it breath for a good 20-30 mins or more if you can, it will make a big difference before drinking. This definitely has a long finish like the bottle indicates.

The XPRT wine review rating 90 out of 100.

Kirkland Signature Series 2008 Mountain Cuvee Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Review


This was our second bottle of the Kirkland Signature Series line and like the first it was very good.

Cuvee is a French term meaning “tank” and generally bottles of wine with this name denote a special blend or batch. This Kirkland cabernet is sourced from 100% Napa Valley grapes and you can definitely taste the premium characteristics of the wine.

The first sip and you definitely get the fruit notes and a fairly good initial taste of blackberry jam, but it is not at all overpowering. With the bing cherries (my favorite in a wine) and the definitive French Oak flavor this wine keeps coming back with more and does not disappoint.

This newer Kirkland Signature Series line of wines is definitely something to keep a close eye on. At just under $20 at your local Costco, do not pass up the opportunity to purchase this great bottle of wine.

TheXPRT wine review rating 92 out of 100.
