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.
