2020 Kirkland Signature Series Premier Cru Chablis

This popular Kirkland bottle usually hits stores around this time of the year.  It was a little late last year arriving in March, at least around the Atlanta area. The price actually went down with this latest vintage, just a few cents, but glad to see it not going the other way. Finding Premier Cru Chablis …

2019 Raymond Reserve Selection Cabernet Sauvignon

We’ve seen this bottle before in Costco stores, but it being the holidays and all, we just could resist that velvety red label. And we are thrilled we tried it. This is flat out delicious Napa Cabernet at a very competitive Costco price. Wine.com is selling this bottle for $47.99, in contrast to Costco’s $34.99 …

2018 Bodegas y Vinedos Pujanza Valdepoleo Rioja

We love finding and trying new Riojas from Costco, and this one checked quite a few boxes. Pretty solid ratings as indicated on the placard below. 94 from Wine Advocate, and a later Google search shows low 90’s for this wine from several of the recent vintages.

2019 Gary Farrell Russian River Selection Pinot Noir

We picked this one up to have on hand for Thanksgiving weekend and figured there’d be a good time to open what we hoped would be a tasty Pinot Noir. A lot of these Pinots can really get good when you start to spend between $30-$45. Costco’s price was $32.99, which is pretty competitive. It’s …

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, …

2021 Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars AVETA Sauvignon Blanc

We love seeing new bottles from Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars hit the shelves at Costco and this AVETA Sauvignon Blanc is one that we’ve never seen before, at least around the Atlanta area Costco stores we frequent. Previously, as far as white wines go from Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, we’ve reviewed and enjoyed their Karia …

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 …
