2021 Kirkland Signature Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

2021 Kirkland Signature Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

It’s always an exciting day when the latest vintage of the Kirkland Oakville Cab hits stores, and we’ll tell you right off the bat, this is a vintage not to be missed.

Despite all the inflationary pressures out there, the price on this wine remains $19.99, which is absolutely amazing for an Oakville wine, and for one of this caliber.

And we’re going to break some new ground this year, reaching our highest score ever for this bottle, and that’s in large part to the amazing and long lasting finish.

Our tasting notes are similar in many ways to years past. It pours a dark ruby in the glass with earthy aromas and dark fruit; in the mouth this is a full bodied wine, with fantastic dark fruit flavor, some black cherry, blackberry, plum with notes of vanilla and spice towards the finish.

And then the finish that really grabs you and holds on. That’s our favorite part of what is our favorite vintage of this great wine.

Don’t wait to buy these in bulk if this is your style of wine. We have a feeling these are going to move fast once word gets out. Cheers, and thank you Costco.

Oh I have to look and see if they have it here in SF, CA. I love the Oakville Napa Cabs. One of my favorite is the Educated Guess Oakville Reserve, the 2021 is on sale here right now at $26 instead of the list $40. We also have the Beringer Knights Valley Cab for $23 which is also a great buy here in SF. The DAOU Cab for $20 is an amazing bottle at regular Costco price. You really ask yourself then why pay more. I saw they now have the 2022 vintage, which I haven't tried yet, but 2019 was amazing and 20/21 very god as well.

Still waiting for this one in Hoover AL.

Stags Leap District is the best one in this series so far this year

Our Warehouse just received a shipment and all I can say is that this wine is undrinkable. Flat, unidimensional plum with some dust. No spice, no complexity, alcohol, tannin, or other notes. It tasted more like unfermented, unsweetened, fruit juice. Either this is a lot control issue or the wine itself. Avoid.

@DocARDC,

Just uncorked another bottle and at least this one displayed some nose. Again demonstrated unidimensional plum followed by some soft tannins. Think a bottle of overpriced J. Lohr. Apart from being a marginal wine, there are some QC, shipping, or storage problems.
