2018 Kirkland Signature Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

It’s nice to see this one back on Costco shelves. It was hinted at being out there in a recent Wall Street Journal article about Costco Wine (here it is, subscription required). So that sent me into my Costco on the lookout. Kirkland’s Rutherford offerings used to be just a Meritage blend, which we enjoyed …

Which of Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of 2020 Are At Costco?

Today, Wine Spectator released their annual Top 100 wines of the year list. We always like to call out which ones we’ve seen at Costco. But this is a group effort. Everyone has to help because the selection is going to vary around the country. And this year I only found two from the list …

2014 Kirkland Signature Ribera del Duero Gran Reserva

It’s nice walking down the aisle and catching a glimpse of those signature blue and silver rings that grace the neck of the Kirkland Ribera del Duero. This is still a young addition in the Kirkland wine family, and it can prove to be fairly elusive too, as demonstrated by the fact that we either …

2018 N46 North Forty Six Cabernet Sauvignon Red Mountain

There’s no reason to beat around the bush here.  This wine is an absolute steal at Costco for only $8.99. Hailing from Washington State’s premier Red Mountain region, finding a bottle like this under $10 is almost unheard of.  Most of the wines are $30-$40 and up.  At the same time, they are just now …

2018 Kirkland Signature Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon

Year in and year out, the Kirkland Stags Leap Cabernet is a reader favorite, and one of mine as well. The first thing to note as the new vintage hits stores is the price which has stayed the same from the 2017 vintage. It was starting to creep up a couple bucks every year, so …

2018 Blank Stare Sauvignon Blanc

This bottle will go down as one of the most interesting Sauvignon Blancs I’ve tasted in years. It comes to us from Orin Swift Cellars and from the Russian River Valley. As anyone who’s tasted Orin Swift wines can attest, they can be big and bold, unrestrained; and that’s exactly how this Sauvignon Blanc hit …

2015 Quarisa Mrs Q Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra

We realized a nice upside surprise on this bottle. While I think Australian wines overall seem to be trending in the right direction in terms of price and quality, I’m still never quite certain what I’m going to get when I pour that first glass. I’ll admit the 93 points from Wine Enthusiast listed on …
