Wine Pick Of The Day! Kirkland Sonoma County Chardonnay

Off on a recent visit to Costco our normal choices were no where to be found.  I happened across this wonderful Chardonnay!

I knew the last time we picked up a Kirkland Cab we loved it and ran back to buy a case.  However, we were a day late, all gone.

This lovely Sonoma County Chardonnay is wonderful.  I like it much better than our ol' standby Yellow Tail from Australia.

Here is the dish:

KIRKLAND Signature, 2007, Sonoma County, Chardonnay, Master Cask Series V

Kirkland says: sleek with vibrant ripe honeysuckle, spicy pear notes, and concentrated opulent tropical pineapple fruit notes.  The body builds in intensity with a consistent thread of crisp vibrant acidity and a rich creamy complex edge from oak as ripe apple flavors expand on the textured finish.

We said:  Lovely.  A great every day dinner wine.  It is rich and creamy, a little oak, pear and apple, yet light at the same time.  A grand step up from Yellow Tail and Kendall Jackson has some competition.

Price Point:  Around $8. to $9., Drink now through 2010.

If you have or will try it please come visit and leave your comments, I would love to post them :)
