Kirkland Signature 2011 Mendoza malbec (Argentina)

Far and away, this is the most-searched-for “winery.” Here you go then…

Tasted at 63-68 degrees on the IR temp gun. Color: black garnet. Nose: plum, pine needles, soft nuances of smoke and glitter. Mouthfeel: full-bodied. Tail trail: 9 seconds. Flavors: plum, blackberry.

Alcohol: 14.5%. From a single vineyard 4000 feet above sea level (vineyard not named so it ain’t that great). Fermented in concrete tanks then aged in French oak. Winemaker: Alejandro Canovas. Bottled by B-71555 for Bodega Vistalba. Power: 2/5. Balance: 1/5. Depth: 1/5. Finesse: 2/5. Rated: 86. Value: $12. Paid: $19. This is WAwineman… uncorked, uneducated but not uncouth.

    Dood…I had one glass of this shitstain of wine at a grand opening of a new local restaurant. Yes, they had my wine pouring as well.
    I could not get over the extreme amounts of SO2. It just masked anything that resembled wine.

    Huh? Why would a new restaurant pour this wine??? Not a smart choice. They should have consulted you first. You’d think?!
