2017 Kirkland Signature Ti Point Sauvignon Blanc

It’s 2018, and we’re in a renaissance for wine. And Costco is pulling the curtain back on the whole industry.

Let me set the scene:  June in Texas, not officially summer yet but the heat index is already 100+ daily.  The only wine I’m wanting is a crisp white wine.

Enter the 2017 Kirkland Signature Ti Point Sauvignon Blanc. I’m a big sauvignon blanc fan, and this is one that knocks it out of the park. And not only is this wine fantastic, I found myself at Costco this weekend looking at it for $6/bottle.

SIX DOLLARS.

Typically I’ll look a wine up on CellarTracker, but this time I didn’t even blink. Nor did I listen to the voice in my head telling me to buy a case.

Tonight I opened it up. Nose was clean, floral, fruity, inviting. Color was bright, faint straw. The taste was heavy on the back palette, tangy, fruity, pear/apple, and faint honeysuckle. Overall – this was stellar. Exactly what I want in the summer heat.

12.5% ABV. Both bottles gone.

I’ll be returning to Costco to buy a case or two, this summer is calling for it.

$6 fucking dollars!
