2018 Hanna Sauvignon Blanc Russian River Valley

Here’s a fun find, a Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc at a great Costco price of only $12.69. I do love Sauvignon Blanc on hot summer days so figured we’d give this a shot and see how it turned out. The short answer: this is a delicious, super crisp, summer wine at a fantastic price. …

2016 Pellegrini Chardonnay Russian River Valley

It’s starting to feel like summer around the Atlanta area, and that’s when white wine hits the spot for me. I haven’t found many interesting whites though at the Costcos around us yet. I’m hoping for some Albarino, German Riesling, Vinho Verde, Vermentino, Arneis, or even whites from anywhere in France besides the obvious spots. …

2017 Raymond Chardonnay Reserve Selection

The normal Costco price of $19.99 for this one is good, not great, but knocking an additional $8 off makes this an insane buy on a delicious Chardonnay. Granted this deal is good through 5/10/20, and I found …

Costco’s Kirkland label produces a number of Cabernet from Napa including a Rutherford, a Napa Valley blend, and a Stags Leap, …

2015 Kirkland Signature Barolo

Several readers alerted us last week that this new Kirkland offering was hitting Costco store shelves, and I was able to find it this weekend. The price for this Barolo is $19.99, which falls right in the ballpark where we see many higher end Kirkland wines (Pauillac Bordeaux, Chateauneuf, Brunello, Champagne).  In each case the …
