2007 Kirkland Signature Rutherford Meritage
|An excellent Meritage from Costco’s Kirkland label, this is a blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 16.5% Cabernet Franc and 5.5% Malbec. While I thought the 07 Standard Napa Meritage from Kirkland was a good wine, this is a clear notch up, and at $15.99 it’s $6 more expensive. But it’s worth the extra money in my opinion.|
The Rutherford has a fruity and earthy nose with a little pepper, medium to full in body, abundant cherry and red fruit flavors, and finishes a little on the dry side, but I found it to be more than satisfying.
Overall, I’d have to say this is one of the better Kirkland wines I’ve had in some time. I highly recommend checking this one out if it’s available at your Costco.
