Suckling also went 93 points on it.  Retail …

2019 Kirkland Signature Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon

We started catching wind that this popular Costco Cab was hitting stores a week or so ago from readers, and I was happy to find it on my last visit.  It often hits in the Sept/Oct timeframe so it arrived a little early this year for us. We’ve seen a gentle price creep on this …

2018 Duckhorn Chardonnay Napa Valley

Over the years, we’ve reviewed quite a few Duckhorn and Decoy (by Duckhorn) wines that have appeared at Costco and they’ve consistently delivered.  Most recently, we posted about the Decoy Sonoma Red that we thought was a really good buy. Duckhorn’s whites have proven to be delicious as well.  Their Sauvignon Blanc pops up occasionally, …

2018 San Simeon Pinot Noir Monterey

We’ve had some fun tasting through a few of the Pinot Noirs at Costco right now that are priced under $20. We tasted the Cloudline (Willamette) and Rodney Strong (Russian River), enjoyed both and went 88 points on each one. Let’s move to another area known for amazing Pinot Noir, Monterey county and the sustainable …

Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne Yellow Label

As we’ve been drinking more Champagne, I’ve been wanting to buy a bottle of Veuve Clicquot to see how it stacks up. I’ve had a few bottles over the years and have always enjoyed them.

2018 Willamette Valley Vineyards Dijon Clone Chardonnay

There’s an interesting story behind this wine as evidenced by the clue in its name “Dijon Clone.” Willamette Valley Vineyards founder Jim Bernau travelled to Burgundy France in the 80’s and brought back these vines for use in Oregon vineyards where he expected they might also thrive.  And based on my tasting on this bottle, …
