2020 Kirkland Signature Columbia Valley Red Wine

Costco’s been playing around with some redesigns of the Kirkland wine labels over the past year, so this new one caught our eye. It’s also a Columbia Valley Red blend, not the Cabernet that we have reviewed more recently. There was a Cabernet – Merlot a while back and before that a red blend that …

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 …

2020 Pendulum Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley

We picked up this bottle for a couple different reasons. First, we love Columbia Valley wines, and Washington State wines overall.  A while back we wrote a brief feature story about this, “Reflections on Washington State Wines and Why Everyone Should Be Buying Them.” So we wanted to know if this is one of those …

2016 Chateau Bel Air Gloria Haut-Medoc Cru Bourgeois

Here’s one of those fun affordable Bordeaux finds that pop up occasionally in Costco.  This one actually appeared in the wooden boxes as opposed to the “cheap seats” (stacks of wine aisle) where the sub $20 ones often are found. You’ll notice the word Gloria in the name, and a quick Google search tells us …

All get a thumbs up from us, except the Cotes du Rhone that was a little lackluster this time around. …

2019 Kirkland Signature Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

Among Costco wines, particularly those in the Kirkland portfolio, it is really hard to beat the Oakville Cabernet for $20. This new 2019 vintage arrived right on time, usually Feb-March. We’re happy to see the price stay the same at $19.99. It was $18.99 a few years back but has been holding steady at $19.99 …
