It’s been a little while since we reviewed the Kirkland Alexander Cab. I’m not sure how we missed the past few vintages, but glad we could get back into it with the 2018 vintage that is in stores now.
Since the 2013 vintage, the price has remained the same at $9.99, and we’ve rated the past few vintages 87 points. This remains a solid buy in California Cabernet under $10, which is pretty hard to find most of the time.
The wine pours a medium to deep ruby in the glass with aromas of black tea, dark fruit and herbs; in the mouth are flavors of mostly dark fruit, some blackberry and black cherry, little mocha; good dose of acidity into a dusty finish.
This is a very drinkable and enjoyable California Cab at a solid price. It’s perfect for a mid-week meal when you need to pair with a red or can easily be enjoyed on its own.
