2019 Masseria Surani Primitivo

We love finding new wines at Costco, especially varietals like this that we don’t see all the time. Wine being a lifelong journey of discovery, it’s important to try new things, be adventurous, and be open to new styles and grapes. Primitivo is actually from the same grape variety as Zinfandel (which originates from Croatia). …

2020 Kirkland Signature Series Premier Cru Chablis

This popular Kirkland bottle usually hits stores around this time of the year.  It was a little late last year arriving in March, at least around the Atlanta area. The price actually went down with this latest vintage, just a few cents, but glad to see it not going the other way. Finding Premier Cru Chablis …

Aldi Winking Owl House Brand Wine: How Does it Stack Up?

The cheap seats play host to all kinds of varietals and regions. Often you’ll find …

2021 Kirkland Signature Malbec Mendoza

The latest vintage of the Kirkland Malbec arriving in stores is always a welcome sight, and what we expect to see in December of each year. Similar to the Kirkland Bordeaux Superieur that we just reviewed, this bottle continues to retain its super low $6.99 price tag. With the inflation we’ve seen elsewhere, it’s surprising …

2019 Raymond Reserve Selection Cabernet Sauvignon

We’ve seen this bottle before in Costco stores, but it being the holidays and all, we just could resist that velvety red label. And we are thrilled we tried it. This is flat out delicious Napa Cabernet at a very competitive Costco price. Wine.com is selling this bottle for $47.99, in contrast to Costco’s $34.99 …

2018 Bodegas y Vinedos Pujanza Valdepoleo Rioja

We love finding and trying new Riojas from Costco, and this one checked quite a few boxes. Pretty solid ratings as indicated on the placard below. 94 from Wine Advocate, and a later Google search shows low 90’s for this wine from several of the recent vintages. The price at Costco was $19.99, and some …
