Combine a great value in wine with a store like Costco and the result is a a very nice wine for a very nice price.   In general, I have found the Kirkland wines to be solid values, but this one, perhaps a bit more.  Purple in color.  The nose has black cherries, some spice, slight violets and hint of minerality.  On the palate, this is medium bodied.  Juicy black cherry fruit with a bit of char.  Good balance.  Nice finish.  This drinks well on its own and will work well with casual foods.  drink over the next three to five years.
