Kirkland Chardonnay - Weekend Wine Review

As the temperatures swelled to an almost unbearable 90 degrees (32 C) it was decided to open this bottle of Kirkland Chardonnay. Advertised as a crisp California wine with notes of melon and butterscotch. Yes, it was bargained priced at 7.99 for 1.5 liter bottle, which should have been the clue anyone, I mean anyone, would have picked up. I prefer unoaked Chardonnay but was willing to give this one a try. Epic Fail

Tastes heavy on the tongue, coating as the promised butterscotch or some other coagulated substance.
Tastes like a wine up too late for its age.
Honeydew, unemployment and scents of urine after you have eaten say....asparagus.
Oily, a good bum wine. First bottle we have upended into the sink in quite a long time.
Clearly, not recommend. Grade = F

You're so funny Tina. Love your "cohesive" description, lol...

Would you like to taste a bottle of wine for me. Marion thought I needed some wine so she bought me a bottle of Barefoot Refresh Perfectly Pink. Quite frankly, I don't think it is actually wine as the label says "wine style." Have you ever heard of it?

Thanks for sharing, now go get some real wine!!!

Butterscotch? I am a sucker for a 7.99 wine so I probably would have bitten too. :)

Thanks Louise, we had some great wines between this one :-)

Hey, Debra, you just don't know until you try! I will continue exploring...sometimes you find gems.

Grilling Chicken and Asparagus

This new Weber grill has taken the heat out of the kitchen and outside on the porch. Perfect when the temperatures are reaching the upper 90...
