2019 Kirkland Signature Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The new Kirkland wines just keep flowing. In the past few weeks, we’ve reviewed the latest vintages of the Kirkland Premier Cru Chablis, Kirkland Oakville Cabernet, Kirkland Cotes du Rhone Villages, and the Kirkland Sancerre. 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 …

2018 Browne Heritage Cabernet Sauvignon

A fun thing about shopping at Costco is how those limited time discount signs catch your eye, especially in the wine aisle.  My cart instantly gravitates towards them. We just posted about the Copain Tous Ensemble Chardonnay that was nearly 50% off (until 12/19), and I know a bunch of readers were trying to track …

2019 Kirkland Signature Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

Here’s a Kirkland wine favorite we are always excited to see hit stores, the Rutherford Cabernet. This marks the third vintage we’ve tasted.  Previously, this was actually a Rutherford Meritage blend, but with the 2016 vintage it became a straight Cab.  We also seemed to have missed the 2017 vintage if one was produced; not …

So we love the discount on a Napa Valley reserve wine …

2019 Kirkland Signature Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon

We started catching wind that this popular Costco Cab was hitting stores a week or so ago from readers, and I was happy to find it on my last visit.  It often hits in the Sept/Oct timeframe so it arrived a little early this year for us. We’ve seen a gentle price creep on this …

2018 Kirkland Signature Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

It’s been a little while since we reviewed the Kirkland Alexander Cab. I’m not sure how we missed the past few vintages, but glad we could get back into it with the 2018 vintage that is in stores now. Since the 2013 vintage, the price has remained the same at $9.99, and we’ve rated the …
