Bottle Notes, Zinfandel

2021 Kirkland Zinfandel Old Vine 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. 14.5% ABV. Red fruits, baking spices and earth on the nose. Medium body with ample acidity. Well balanced with vibrant, juicy fruits. Strawberry, cherry and plums on the palate. Nice length on the finish. Not the most complex Zinfandel and lacking structure but still well made and easy to drink. Drink over the next year or so.

My rating: 88 points.

For $10 it is hard to go wrong here. Look for this at your local Costco in the near term as at least in my market it never seems to last very long.
