2018 Duckhorn Chardonnay Napa Valley

Over the years, we’ve reviewed quite a few Duckhorn and Decoy (by Duckhorn) wines that have appeared at Costco and they’ve consistently delivered.  Most recently, we posted about the Decoy Sonoma Red that we thought was a really good buy. Duckhorn’s whites have proven to be delicious as well.  Their Sauvignon Blanc pops up occasionally, …

2016 Jax Vineyards Y3 Chardonnay

I found another interesting Chardonnay to try on my last visit to Costco. Interesting in that it’s highly rated, highly discounted in price, and also a 2016 vintage which I’m surprised is still lingering around. It’s similar to the 2016 Sterling Chardonnay we reviewed last week. I guess the distributors need to move these wines. …
