2018 N46 North Forty Six Cabernet Sauvignon Red Mountain

There’s no reason to beat around the bush here.  This wine is an absolute steal at Costco for only $8.99. Hailing from Washington State’s premier Red Mountain region, finding a bottle like this under $10 is almost unheard of.  Most of the wines are $30-$40 and up.  At the same time, they are just now …

2018 Kirkland Signature Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon

Year in and year out, the Kirkland Stags Leap Cabernet is a reader favorite, and one of mine as well. The first thing to note as the new vintage hits stores is the price which has stayed the same from the 2017 vintage. It was starting to creep up a couple bucks every year, so …

2015 Quarisa Mrs Q Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra

We realized a nice upside surprise on this bottle. While I think Australian wines overall seem to be trending in the right direction in terms of price and quality, I’m still never quite certain what I’m going to get when I pour that first glass. I’ll admit the 93 points from Wine Enthusiast listed on …

2017 Kirkland Signature Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

Right on the heels of the new Kirkland Barolo that we just tasted and really enjoyed, we are lucky enough to have Costco also grace us with a classic Kirkland favorite, the Oakville Cabernet. Costco’s Kirkland label produces a number of Cabernet from Napa including a Rutherford, a Napa Valley blend, and a Stags Leap, …

2017 Arrogant Frog Cabernet Sauvignon

I’m always on the look out for new wines arriving at Costco that I’ve never seen carried before, and this one caught my eye, at first because of the $7.99 price tag but then I noticed “single vineyard” and became even more curious what was inside. Obviously, the cute label and branding was noticeable, and …

2017 Kirkland Signature Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon

I’ve had several readers alert me that one of our favorite Kirkland wines was available in the latest vintage, and that would be this Stags Leap Cabernet which I’m always anxious to try. This vintage did mark another price increase, up to $23.99, from a prior $21.99, and before that it was $19.99 which is …

2017 Kirkland Signature Columbia Valley Cabernet

This wine debuted about a week ago, and it’s one that I look forward to trying each year.  In the past, Costco has also produced a Columbia Valley Merlot-Cabernet blend, although I’ve yet to see this in a couple of years it seems.  I noticed that the latest vintage of the Signature Series Columbia Valley …

2017 Kirkland Signature Boxed California Cabernet Sauvignon

We had some readers post about the Kirkland Boxed Cabernet on the forum last year, and I was always curious about it but the boxes never appeared in stores near us to try…that is until a couple weeks ago.  This box includes four bottles worth of wine and is priced at $12.99, which is pretty …

2016 Northwest Ridge Columbia Valley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

I’ve never heard of Northwest Ridge Winery and for some reason I decided to drop this bottle in my cart to see what it was all about. I noticed the 90 point Parker rating and the price was right at $13.99 (retail appears to be around $22, so Costco has a nice discount on this …
