2019 Whitehall Lane Sauvignon Blanc

Nothing pairs with summer like a crisp and delicious Sauvignon Blanc, and that’s exactly what we have here. This is our first time tasting this wine so we didn’t know what to expect but it definitely met and ultimately exceeded our expectations. Only doing the research now after having already tasted and making our notes, …

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 …

2016 Chateau Bel Air Gloria Haut-Medoc Cru Bourgeois

Here’s one of those fun affordable Bordeaux finds that pop up occasionally in Costco.  This one actually appeared in the wooden boxes as opposed to the “cheap seats” (stacks of wine aisle) where the sub $20 ones often are found. You’ll notice the word Gloria in the name, and a quick Google search tells us …

2019 Kirkland Signature Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

Among Costco wines, particularly those in the Kirkland portfolio, it is really hard to beat the Oakville Cabernet for $20. This new 2019 vintage arrived right on time, usually Feb-March. We’re happy to see the price stay the same at $19.99. It was $18.99 a few years back but has been holding steady at $19.99 …
