Kirkland is Costco's house brand. Mostly Merlot, this wine has a healthy bright purple color and a nice feeling of ripeness. Somewhat medicinal tart cherry, licorice, and chocolatey flavors. OK wine, fairly priced, but certainly not a memorable Bordeaux imitation - to my taste more like a simple, ripe California Pinot Noir than a serious Merlot. - HK 2008-07-26
