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 …

2020 Kirkland Signature Cotes De Provence Rosé

Here’s a Kirkland bottle we’ve been waiting to arrive, especially as the weather warms up. I know a few readers have spotted it recently, so it should be making its way through stores nationwide right now. This is likely the fastest moving Costco wine that we track. If you spot it, buy it. While I …

2019 Kirkland Signature Carneros Pinot Noir

There are quite a few solid choices for Pinot Noir at Costco right now, and this new Kirkland Carneros bottle is among the better buys in our opinion. It’s hard to find Pinot from Carneros this affordably priced, and also this good. That’s what we hope (and have come to expect) Kirkland wines to deliver …

2018 Kirkland Signature Chianti Classico Riserva

There are quite a few new vintages of popular Kirkland wines hitting stores right now.  This Chianti is always an interesting find for us that we are anxious to taste but never super excited about. Right off the bat though there’s some good news, a price drop.  For as long as I can remember this …

2019 Kirkland Signature Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Finding this wine is a surprise on a number of fronts, but let’s start with the new label.  What do you think?  I kind of like it; definitely fresher and more exciting than the standard Kirkland wine labels. There’s no back label on this new design, just a small block of text on the side …

2018 Kirkland Signature Suscol Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

I was so happy to finally find this bottle last night. There’s been a lot of discussion among readers nationwide who saw this one arrive in their stores before it made it’s way here. The feedback has been extremely positive and I was curious what Costco could pack into a single vineyard Napa Cab for …

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 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

It’s nice to see this Kirkland Pinot return to store shelves in the latest 2018 vintage.  This bottle is a reader and personal favorite among the Kirkland wine portfolio. There are a few important things to note that are carried over from the prior 2017 vintage.   First is the price which has stayed the same …

The Definitive Guide To Costco’s Kirkland Signature Wines

[originally published 5/9/20; updated 3/8/21] One thing about shopping at Costco, which is on one hand the greatest thing ever, but simultaneously one of the most frustrating, is the idea of the “Costco find.” The term can apply to a couple different types of “finds” too. First, you have the item you’ve never seen before …

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.
