2019 Kirkland Signature Toscana

2019 Kirkland Signature Toscana

Look what we found making a surprise appearance back in Costco stores. The last time we saw this bottle was back in 2018 with the 2014 vintage. We thought this might be a one and done Kirkland bottling, but here we are five vintages later and it’s back.

The price went up $1 to $14.99. There’s no mention of the varietal blend on the label but last time it was 80% Sangiovese with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot. We’d assume it’s similar with the 2019 vintage.

It’s kind of odd how the placard references a 2020 vintage too.

Our tasting notes are similar to the previous review too, and our conclusion the same: this is a solid mid-week drinker, perfect pizza wine. It’s a little light but it’s easy going and will satisfy a lot of Super Tuscan fans in the $15 range.

The wine starts with dusty, dried fruit on the nose; light in body with chewy tannins; good amount of flavor and acidity, mostly black cherry, black licorice, pepper notes.

It definitely opened up over time so a decant would be a good idea. The finish is good. Nothing super special here, but again it’s a fair buy, perfect pizza wine or table wine. We’re going to drop our rating one point to a still very respectable 87.

Just picked up today a couple of 2018 Kirkland Brunello di Montalcino at the Glen Allen, VA Costco. Noticed that Suckling reduced his rating to 91 vs 92 for the 2017. Curious to see if you would downgrade it too. I plan to taste it in the next few days.

That’s crazy. Just tonight I found more of the 2016 KS Brunello. We heard the new one was out but haven’t found it yet. Hopefully soon since it’s one of our favorite Kirkland bottles.

Didn't last long in the Atlanta area.

I'm glad to see this review as I had picked up both 2018 and 2019 vintages but haven't yet opened. Since we finished all the Kirkland Chianti,these are next in line for paring with pizza and/or other "less formal" Italian dishes.

Hi. Recently got the St. Julien Kirkland in Delaware. Never seen it before. Maybe a first bottling? Don't know if it's been in Atlanta and if you are going to review soon. Looking forward to it if so.

Hi Sean. We have heard about this one but haven’t seen it yet. Super excited as St Julien is one of our favorite areas of Bordeaux. Heard the price was around $18 too which is amazing for a wine from this region. Hope to find and review soon.
