February 2019: What are you drinking?

Had a fun little tasting with some guys who want to get into wine.  I am always intrigued by what Costco can do, but I don't think I'll buy the Kirkland Rioja Reserva.  It was hard for me to pick out as tempranillo.

Mimikos there was also a 2001 Monprivato Barolo.

2016 Kirkland brand Signature Series Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon.   Picked this up at my local Costco to try with some prime ribeye cap steaks.  I was impressed.  This was pretty good juice for the price.  I think I will try to go back and get some more.

2005 Masseto

Nice!  How was it?

Funny I was just looking over your weekend collection and was going to ask you the same thing!!

Those burgs, bubbly and Bdx look great... and the 1969 Krug Pinot must have been an awesome surprise

Masseto was terrific, rich with a very slight dryness (typical for Italy) on the finish. Amazing that it's just merlot grapes.
