From the bottle:
At the heart of Argentina’s most important wine-producing province lies Mendoza, called “the land of sun and wine” by locals. It’s a place where orchards and vineyards line quiet country roads against the backdrop of the Andes mountains. From this high-altitude region comes Kirkland Signature Malbec, made from Argentina’s signature varietal, sourced from low-yield, family-owned vineyards. This deep purple wine imparts lively dark fruit aromas and a smooth, rich finish. Drink now through 2014. Produced and bottled by Bodega I.N.V.
As I noted in my bulk buy alert last week, we like this wine a lot. Fruity but not overwhelmingly so, smooth on the nose, and a great finish. This wine has notes of plum and a wisp of vanilla and oak. The Kirkland Signature Malbec drinks like a much more expensive wine and is easily the top ranking Malbec we have reviewed. Act fast to get in on this one as it likely won’t last long at only $7.99!
