Bottle Notes, Zinfandel

2018 Kirkland Old Vine Zinfandel Sonoma County – Bottle Notes

Kirkland is the private label for Costco. The wine is made by Kunde Winery. and cellared and bottled by DC Flynt MW Selections in American Canyon, California. The fruit for this wine comes from vines that average 45 years of age.

Crimson in color. 15% ABV. Charming nose of black fruits, earth and pepper. Medium body with ample acidity. Nice structure with prominent fruits. Blackberry, black raspberry and pepper on the palate. Medium length on the finish. Not that complex but tasty and easy to drink. Best over the next several years.

My rating: 87 points.

For $9 this is perfectly fine. It compares well to wines like Marietta Old Vine and Bogle Petite Sirah.

  1. I bought a 2016 Kirkland OV zin for $10 last year and if I remember correctly it could be traced back via some google searches to Kunde. Look for a “bw” mark on it. That’s the bonded winery number.

    It was actually pretty good. It got a WS90.
