Kirkland 2008 Alexander Valley Merlot

Kirkland 2008 Alexander Valley Merlot Wine
Thick and sweet, this bottle lays on what I like about a nice Merlot. While “sweet” it’s not “sugary” like some of it’s cheaper counterparts. The spice on the finish is nice. Black cherry and plum dominate. Thick, jammy finish with vanilla undertones.

You can pick up all Kirkland wines at Costco and this Alexander Valley Merlot was $9. Easy to enjoy, and above average for a $9 wine…6/10 rating. Again, make sure you like ‘em on the sweet side here.

Go Bears.
