2018 Antiche Terre Venete Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG

We thought it might be time to revisit this popular Costco Amarone.  The last time we reviewed it was back with the 2016 vintage that we enjoyed and gave 89 points. We have a similar story with the 2018 vintage that is in Costco stores right now.  The price did go up $1 to $23.99, …

2018 Chateau Faugeres Calice de Faugeres Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

We thought this one might overdeliver and it does. This is a great Costco wine find. We’re big Bordeaux fans, and for $20, this is a score. Online the price seems to be closer to the $28 range, so it appears Costco’s bringing it in at a competitive buy. Suckling has gone in the low …

2018 Mosquita Muerta Pispi Blend de Tintas

We dropped this one in the cart just for purposes of exploration for this site. We’ve never seen or tasted this Argentinean red blend before. On the placard you’ll see the 92 points the wine received from Wine Advocate. We couldn’t find a true retail price for the bottle. Online it really varies but most …

2018 Chateau des Rochers Castillon Cotes de Bordeaux

When looking for value buys in the Costco wine aisle, some of our favorite finds are the small displays of random Bordeaux bottles that wedge in between other wines in the “cheap seats” (meaning the aisles of stacked wine, not wooden boxes). If you browse through our French review pages, you can find quite a …

2018 Stags’ Leap Winery Petite Sirah

This is a classic Napa bottle that we were surprised, but delighted, to find at Costco. We’ve visited this winery a couple of times and have tasted many vintages of their Petite Sirah, always enjoying them, along with most of the other wines Stags’ Leap Winery offers. Note: Stags’ Leap Winery and Stag’s Leap Wine …

Finally, we found this. Just like many of you have trouble finding the wines we review here, we also sometimes have trouble finding the ones our readers recommend. Each trip to the store, we cross our fingers hoping to find them. The new Kirkland Chateauneuf has been out for a while, and readers have reported …
