Kendall-Jackson 2005 Chardonnay – Costco forgiven?

Friday, August 3rd, 2007

Ah! Well a day! What evil looks
Had I from old and young!
Instead of the cross, the Albatross
About my neck was hung.

If you are a regular reader you will recall my previous disappointments with wines from Costco.  The Costco philosophy is to stack it really high and sell it really cheap, but, and here’s the thing, they stick to one brand per similar item (to maximise buying power) and generally make it an upmarket quality product.  When you translate that to wine you typically get good name wines in bad years.

 Kendall-Jackson next to some seedling Parsley that may, or may not feed us this century…for some reason.
