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 …

2016 Chateau de Ribebon Bordeaux Superieur

I found this bottle on the corner of the “cheap seats” (the aisles, not bins of wines), where we seem to have frequently found an abundance of good, inexpensive Bordeaux over the last year. I hope it’s trend that continues in 2020, and maybe this bottle is the first indication that it will. A lot …

2015 Gerard Bertrand Art de Vivre Vin Rouge

I found a lot to like about this Costco wine find. First off, obviously is the unique “natural pottery” bottle inspired by artists from the South of France. It’s a pretty cool presentation, and instantly was noticed by guests as it was sitting around my house on the day we were to open it. The …

2015 Chateau Malescot-St-Exupery La Dame de Malescot Margaux

Long time readers will know that I’m a Bordeaux lover, particularly left bank, and I love finding them at Costco because more times than not, the price is impossible to beat. We saw this with the 2015 Pontet-Canet that I found at Costco for $99, and the next day saw the same bottle at Total …

2018 Kirkland Signature Cotes du Rhone Villages

OK, this might be the most ridiculous Kirkland wine buy that we’ve ever tasted. The Kirkland CDR Villages just keeps getting better and better every year. Last year around this same time, I reviewed the 2017 vintage and bumped it up to 88 points, from a previous 87. This year there is no doubt that …

2016 Domaine Thierry Mothe Chablis Grand Cru Bougros

Whether I’m shopping at Costco, Total Wine or any of my other go to wine spots, I’m always on the look out for Chablis, and if I find Grand Cru Chablis, that’s just a bonus. Most bottles of Chablis represent an expression of Chardonnay that works for me.  I love the fruit forward approach, with …

2018 Commanderie de la Bargemone Coteaux d’Aix en Provence Rose

This was the only Rose at my Costco on the day I was there that I hadn’t tasted before, so I figured I’d give it a shot.  And I’m glad that I did and have the chance to report back to all of you. This wine is absolutely delicious and completely caught me off guard.  …

2015 Chateau Marechaux Bordeaux Superieur

Long time readers know that I always like to taste the various inexpensive Bordeaux that seem to land in the “Cheap Seats” (aisles of wine, not wooden boxes) on a regular basis.   It’s almost like they cycle in regularly; when one’s gone another one arrives.  And you don’t always see the same producers year after year, …

2014 Château de Belcier Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux

There are a lot of interesting aspects to this wine. First up, we reviewed the 2012 vintage two years ago (don’t remember seeing a 2013 at Costco but I may have missed it) and really enjoyed the wine rating it 88 points and we found it to be a great value for the price which …

2017 Cellier des Princes Cotes du Rhone Red Vieilles Vignes

When I see a new Cotes du Rhone hit Costco under $10, it’s always a no brainer and lands in the cart with almost zero thought. This is a bottle I had never seen before, and the price was right at only $7.49. On top of that, on the back label the winery proudly promotes …
