TN: 2007 Kirkland Signature Meritage (USA, California, Napa Valley, Rutherford)

  • 2007 Kirkland Signature Meritage - USA, California, Napa Valley, Rutherford (4/18/2010)
    Nose is really seductive with chocolate covered black cherries, bright raspberries, vanilla oak, hints of mocha and licorice. Pronounced oak on the nose as well but not in any way obtrusive. Palate has a really silky mouthfeel with polished tannins and good bright fruit. After a bit of air the nose fleshes out to reveal hints tobacco, sweet cream and spice. Palate is really nice with medium body and built in a leaner style. Minerality, bright flavors and dry tannins. Drinking nicely now but has some underlying structure to last for a few years. I am really enjoying this now and there is even enough stuffing for some potential upside; well worth the $15. (90 pts.)

Tyler, any idea who made the wine for Costco?

Not sure Jeff. Back of the bottle says produced and bottled by petite fleur cellars.
