2011 Kirkland Signature Mendoza Malbec
Crazy value for only $6.99, which is $2 cheaper than it was at my store last year. Even at $8.99 I thought last year’s was a bargain. At $6.99 for the 2011, this is a no brainer.
It’s fruity and young, with ripe flavor as in years past. But I’m picking up a lot more of a floral and spice component on the finish, especially after a little air, that really brings more to the wine. Nice job on this one Costco. I’ve had several readers write in with praise the minute this one hit their stores, and they couldn’t have been right.
Is it the greatest Malbec of all time? No. But it just might be the best one for $7.
