2018 Kirkland Signature Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

There are some interesting Kirkland bottles floating around Costco stores nationwide right now.  This is definitely one that caught our attention.  It’s a straight Napa Valley Cabernet, not the blend that we’ve reviewed for several vintages (or the older Napa County, not Valley), and not the appellation designated Cabs (Stags, Rutherford, Oakville). This is a …

2018 Kirkland Signature Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

Here’s the latest vintage of a Kirkland wine I know many of you, like me, have been waiting for – the Kirkland Oakville Cabernet. This is usually one of our favorites among the Napa appellations that Kirkland wine spans.  Some of the other premier Napa regions we see offerings from include Rutherford and Stag’s Leap, …

2018 Kirkland Signature Bordeaux Superieur

The Bordeaux Superieur has never been one of our favorite Kirkland bottles. In the past we’ve found it drinkable and semi-fair for its super low $7.99 price tag, but not really a wine that we would label “enjoyable” or one that we would stock up on. With the new 2018 vintage, the price stays the …

2014 Los Frailes G-11 Cabernet Sauvignon

Here’s a new arrival that caught our eye.  This is an organically grown (and single vineyard I believe) Cabernet Sauvignon from the Valencia region on Spain’s east coast.  It’s an area that doesn’t get quite as much attention as some of Spain’s other famed wine regions, but it produces several white and red grape varietals …

2018 Kirkland Signature Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

We have had a nice a string of reviews of tasty Kirkland wines, and here’s another one to add the list to look for on your next Costco trip. Kirkland (value) plus Columbia Valley (quality) generally flashes a buy signal.  This wine debuted last year in the 2017 vintage and it was a winner, as …

2018 Kirkland Signature Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

It’s nice to see this one back on Costco shelves. It was hinted at being out there in a recent Wall Street Journal article about Costco Wine (here it is, subscription required). So that sent me into my Costco on the lookout. Kirkland’s Rutherford offerings used to be just a Meritage blend, which we enjoyed …

2017 Little Big Town 4 Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon

I had to snap this one up at what ends up being a ridiculously low price for some Columbia Valley juice.  Costco’s normal price is $11.99, but through 11/22 you can get $4.50 off which brings it down to $7.49.  I found the same bottle for $10.97 at my Total Wine and online it’s hovering …

2017 Laura Hartwig Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

In the world of good value priced wine, Chile is a great place to look right now, especially for Cabernet. This wine was only $12.89 and it drinks like it cost way more. It’s a single vineyard wine too so offers a nice expression of the land. The wine achieved a 91 point rating from …

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 …
