2005 Kirkland Cuvee de Nalys Chateauneuf du Pape
From the back label: Produced and bottled by Domaine de Nalys. 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre-Cinsault. 14.7%.
Purple ruby color, not quite opaque, but very dark in the center. Tasted at room temperature so the wine was a little hotter (alcoholic attributes) than what one would normally find. Purple plum, leather, and lavender nose. Full-bodied, chewy, and tannic, ripe fruit, earthy, and balanced. A bit of red pepper at the end of a good 30 second finish.
A solid 90 point wine. Very good for $20 at the local Costco. Will recork and try again tomorrow.
