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 10/27/21] 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. This is usually one of our favorites among the Napa appellations that Kirkland wine spans.  Some of the other premier Napa regions we see offerings from include Rutherford and Stag’s Leap, …

Special Report on the New Kirkland K Vine Rosé and Chardonnay

This was exciting to find on my latest trip to Costco – the debut of the Kirkland Signature K Vine wines. These wines were first mentioned in an article that appeared in the Costco Connection magazine, featuring a Q and A with winemaker Charles Smith, who is behind these new offerings. Charles Smith, as many …

2019 Kirkland Signature Russian River Pinot Noir

It’s been a little while since we last reviewed the Kirkland Russian River Pinot Noir.  I apologize for that; I really can’t believe it’s been about a year and a half and perhaps we missed a vintage or two. This wine has always been pretty middle of the road for me; maybe that’s why I …

2018 Kirkland Signature Bordeaux Superieur

The Bordeaux Superieur has never been one of our favorite Kirkland bottles. In the past we’ve found it drinkable and semi-fair for its super low $7.99 price tag, but not really a wine that we would label “enjoyable” or one that we would stock up on. With the new 2018 vintage, the price stays the …

2018 Kirkland Signature Series Premier Cru Chablis

There’s good news and bad news with the latest vintage of this Kirkland bottle. We’ll start with the bad news, the price going up $2 to $19.99. In the last vintage we reviewed, the 2016, it was priced at $17.99. Even at $17.99, we enjoyed, but weren’t in love with, that vintage. The good news …

2018 Kirkland Signature Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

We have had a nice a string of reviews of tasty Kirkland wines, and here’s another one to add the list to look for on your next Costco trip. Kirkland (value) plus Columbia Valley (quality) generally flashes a buy signal.  This wine debuted last year in the 2017 vintage and it was a winner, as …

2018 Kirkland Signature Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

It’s nice to see this one back on Costco shelves. It was hinted at being out there in a recent Wall Street Journal article about Costco Wine (here it is, subscription required). So that sent me into my Costco on the lookout. Kirkland’s Rutherford offerings used to be just a Meritage blend, which we enjoyed …

2014 Kirkland Signature Ribera del Duero Gran Reserva

It’s nice walking down the aisle and catching a glimpse of those signature blue and silver rings that grace the neck of the Kirkland Ribera del Duero. This is still a young addition in the Kirkland wine family, and it can prove to be fairly elusive too, as demonstrated by the fact that we either …
