Bulk Buy!

Kirkland Signature Cotes du Rhone Villages 2011 - A Whole Lot of Complexity For $7
Costco delivers another excellent Kirkland Signature wine.

A blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre from Cotes du Rhone Villages, France.

Purchased for $6.99. Available exclusively at Costco.

From the bottle:
"Only one-fifth of the wine produced in Southern Rhone's Cotes du Rhone qualifies for the superior designation of Cotes du Rhone Villages. Vintner Patrick Leset is recognized among the top winemakers in the region, and his wines are among the finest in France. He brings decades of experience in the Rhone to this Kirkland Signature Cotes du Rhone Villages.

Syrah delivers the deep black fruit concentration and smooth chocolate. Grenache adds balanced harmony, warmth and fruit-forward notes of black plum and blackberry. Mourvedre gives the sense of sweet earth to this classic blend from the Rhone. - Patrick Leset, Winemaker.

14.0% Alcohol"
We're back with a bang from our week's vacation, or to be more exact, we're back with a Bulk Buy! Today's wine is another in the excellent line of Kirkland Signature wines available exclusively at Costco. You may remember a few of our other recent features on Kirkland Signature wines, such as:

The 2011 Kirkland Signature Cotes du Rhone Villages begins with intriguing aromas of deep, dark fruit, spice and excellent earthy notes -- much more than you would expect to find on your typical $7 wine. The wine tastes very oaky when first opened but that quickly dissipates to reveal tons of dark, jammy fruit counterbalanced by those excellent earthy notes. Licorice, oak and spice round things out. It ends dry, earthy and oaky with good length. This wine offers a whole lot of complexity for such a low price, and it's even better on day 2. Bulk Buy!
