2014 Bodega Los Toneles Tonel 46 Reserva Malbec

I like that you can typically score decent Malbec buys around $10, especially at Costco, and this bottle lines up nicely in that segment for only $10.99. It didn’t knock my socks off, but the more I dug in, I found a really pleasant and easy drinking wine that is a solid buy and good value. …

2013 Clos d’Argentine Malbec Reserva Winemaker’s Selection

Every once in a while this happens.  You find a bottle at Costco with a label and markings that catch your eye, signaling potential with an attractive price tag, only to throw a few in your cart and later find out that they don’t live up to your expectations.  This is one of those bottles. …

2012 Tapiz Seleccion de Barricas Estate Blend

This wine showed up in the wood bins at select Costco clubs a few weeks ago. There isn’t a whole lot of this wine available on account of it being a single vineyard, smaller production offering from this winery. Tapiz is Spanish for “tapestry,” and this winery is so-named for the efforts of winemakers Fabian …

2015 Kirkland Signature Mendoza Malbec

There aren’t a lot of wines priced at $6.99 that you would readily recommend to someone, but there are a handful of Kirkland bottles that always seem to fit that bill, the Kirkland Malbec being one of them (others could include the Kirkland Cotes du Rhone Villages, Chianti Classico, and Rioja). Love the new label …

2013 Tikal Patriota Mendoza

I’ve written before about how wine is often situational, meaning that wines can taste different just in the environment in which they’re consumed.  And this wine falls into a bucket of being consumed in a “very optimal environment.”  That is: group of friends, nice spring day, vegetables and pork tenderloins cooking on a Big Green …

2011 Kirkland Signature Series Mendoza Malbec

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 …
