    For $6.89 I couldn’t resist trying the 2017 Kirkland Cotes du Rhone Villages. You see lots of Cotes du Rhone, but you see much less wine from the Cotes du Rhone Villages AOC. In theory, it’s made from better grapes from a smaller area. In this case, that potential is achieved big time.

    The Syrah, Grenache and Mouvedre blend privide deep, generous and earthy red fruit. Terrific, saturating mouth feel. Moderate tannins and great acidity keep things going for a pretty long, smooth finish. This is something I’d gladly pay $15 for.

    Definitely worth buying a case or two to have as house wine. This is one of the greatest bargains I’ve encountered.

    Thats always a good pick. Hope to find near me and get a review up. Glad to hear the current vintage is a winner.

    I tried this wine based on the reviews in this blog. This is a good wine and an excellent value. I will buy it again.

    I finally found the ’17 Kirkland Cotes due Rhone Villages and will be posting the review tomorrow. It is excellent as everyone here has said, certainly one to stock up on since it’s only $7.

    I found this one in Indy, and picked up 6 bottles based on the reviews.

    It is back and 6.99 a bottle here in Minnesota. Got 6 cases yesterday. Won’t last long.

    Cheaper than Fiji bottled water!
