2021 Bec Hardy Sauvignon Blanc

When we’re perusing the Costco wine aisles, there’s usually 3-4 bottles we’re on the lookout for, either reader recommendations, or Kirkland wines we expect to be dropping. In addition we’re always on the lookout for wines we’ve never seen carried at Costco before. Or at least bottles that haven’t appeared in the stores we frequent …

2018 Durant & Booth Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon

We’re not always fans of bourbon barrel aged wines. They really can run the gamut from amazing to undrinkable, at least for our tastes, which skew more traditional and old world. But nonetheless, this bottle found its way into our Costco cart. And it actually turned out to be on the more enjoyable side of …

2016 Bodegas Sierra Salinas Mira Salinas Alicante

There are quite a few interesting things about this bottle we found at Costco, which we’ve never seen before. First is the mistake on the Costco placard, labeling this wine as a Rioja, which would lead you to believe it was comprised of Tempranillo. But the wine is actually from Alicante and is comprised of …

2020 Kirkland Signature Napa Valley Red Blend

Here’s a popular Kirkland wine hitting stores right on schedule, usually in the Sept-Oct timeframe. We’ve heard from several readers who found this wine weeks before we did, so hopefully it’s beginning to make its way into more stores. Two things right off the bat. Yes, the price stayed the same at $10.99. That’s a …

2022 Costco Wine Advent-ure Calendar

It’s hard to believe it’s that time already, but here we are just closing out summer and bam, we get the Costco wine advent calendar hitting stores, alongside Christmas trees and holiday decorations. This is about the same time of the year when last years Advent Calendar dropped, first week of September. It always seems …

2017 Torre Zambra Madia Montepulciano d’Abruzzo

This is one of those low priced bottles that caught our eye from the “cheap seats” (the aisles of stacked wine, not the wooden boxes). Costco often slides these interesting European wines in among rows of the usual suspects, so you need to have your radar up when you’re cruising through the cheap seats. And …

2020 Kirkland Signature Carneros Pinot Noir

We almost didn’t recognize this one. The Kirkland Carneros Pinot gets an all new lablel that’s super simple and clean. We kind of like it; here’s the old one for comparison. There’s no back label, just additional information on the sides of the main label, so we took a few additional photos. The Kirkland Carneros …

2021 Tabali Vetas Blancas Sauvignon Blanc

We’ve been on a bit of a Sauvignon Blanc kick lately and have found some good ones at Costco that we’ve posted about. This includes the La Crema Sauvignon Blanc from Sonoma, and the Aresti Sauvignon Blanc from Chile. Here’s another Chilean one that we found that we’ve never tasted before. There’s not a lot …

2018 Mosquita Muerta Pispi Blend de Tintas

We dropped this one in the cart just for purposes of exploration for this site. We’ve never seen or tasted this Argentinean red blend before. On the placard you’ll see the 92 points the wine received from Wine Advocate. We couldn’t find a true retail price for the bottle. Online it really varies but most …
