First off, thanks so much for visiting and supporting this site.  It’s been seven years since we started this site, and it began completely on a whim as I posted random stories online about buying wine at Costco.  At that point I never thought it would have the readership and following that it does now.  So …

I usually find the Kirkland Signature wines to offer at the very least a good wine for the money, but I’m going to have to recommend steering clear of this one.  I haven’t reviewed one of the Kirkland Alexander Valley Cabs since the 2007 vintage and I reread my notes on that one which I noted as being …

I didn’t hesitate for long dropping this one in my cart.  I’m a big fan of Stags Leap wines and you rarely see a Stags Cabernet for the price I found this bottle at ($19.99).  And the wine was exactly what I hoped it would be – a big, rich, nicely structured red.  It has …

Kirkland Signature wines historically offer a nice bang for the buck (like most Kirkland items at Costco), and the KS Cotes du Rhone Villages always seems to lead the way in terms of unbelievable value since it is priced at only $6.99.  You just can’t find wines from this region priced that low so I highly …

Last year the Kirkland Russian River Chardonnay (2012 vintage) was a much discussed topic on the site.  I reviewed it and really enjoyed it.  One of our other reviewers Michael, felt differently, that the wine was dry and lacking real character.  So when I saw the 2013 vintage hit my Costco, I knew it had …

Reviewed by Josh L This is the first “joint venture” wine label that I can recall seeing under the Kirkland Signature brand.  While many of these wines are produced by third parties (especially the European ones), the actual label is normally 100% Costco Kirkland Signature. With that out of the way, the $7.99 price point …

Reviewed by Josh L Wandering through my local Costco, I happened upon the first Kirkland-labeled Italian wine that I can recall.  Packaged in a simple and lightweight bottle, this $8.69 wine turned out to be a terrific bargain. Pouring into our glasses, the wine color is standard Chianti Classico – dark purple with great consistency …

Take a look at this little treat that arrived in Costco stores a bit earlier than normal this year.  I’ve already had several readers write to me about it, and the reviews seem pretty positive.  This has historically been a great buy at $19.99, far below most other wines from this premier region.  Let’s take …

Of all the Kirkland Signature wines I’ve had in the past year or so, this is among the ones I looked most forward to digging into (some of the KS Chateauneufs too, and the Signature Series Malbec was outstanding).  2012 was such a banner growing year for Napa and I figured the Kirkland Napa Cab for …

It was a pleasant surprise to come across this bottle from Costco’s Kirkland label.  They’ve really expanded their reach to include a wider selection of wines from numerous prestigious wine growing areas around the globe.  So I would advise to take note on your next trip to Costco.  You might be surprised what you find. …

There are quite a few Kirkland Signature Series bottles available at my Costco right now that have really grabbed my attention.  I just reviewed and loved the Signature Series Mendoza Malbec.  During my most recent visit, I found this Oakville Merlot, along with two other Kirkland Signature Series wines I’m really excited about: a 2012 Napa …

This is one of those wines that just highlights why shopping for wine at Costco is such a pleasure.  I’ve had several readers comment on the standard (non signature series) Kirkland Malbec which is about half the price of this one ($8.99 for the regular Kirkland Malbec vs $18.79 for Kirkland Signature Series that I …

How can you tell a good wine from an excellent wine?  One of our tests is to take them on a marathon and see how they perform.   In this case, we ran with two Kirkland Signature wines: the 2012 Signature Merlot and Columbia Valley Red  (which is pretty close to Bordeaux blend, with cabernet, merlot …

Like McDonald’s McRib, Costco trots out its special Kirkland Signature 10 Year Tawny Porto every once in a while.   However, unlike the McRib, this port is both a value and very tasty.   Clear brick color, smoothly spiced with raisin, light cherry, caramel, some orange and smoke on the palate.  It ends with a wonderfully smooth …
