Medoc is a Bordeaux wine growing region in southwest France, south of the Gironde River near the Atlantic Ocean. The Kirkland Signature Medoc is 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Merlot with an alcohol content of 13.0%.
Last year, I was not a fan of the 2011 vintage of this wine but I wanted to give the 2012 a try to see if the wine is different or if my taste has changed. The bottle promises an intense crimson and purple color with a fruit forward palate, ripe tannins and cocoa notes. The color is certainly dark and intense but the palate is not fruit forward. All I tasted was oak with some bitter fruit. The wine improved a lot after an hour but not enough to get me to buy more. The bottle is $8.99 at Costco.
