2015 Chateau Malescot-St-Exupery La Dame de Malescot Margaux

Long time readers will know that I’m a Bordeaux lover, particularly left bank, and I love finding them at Costco because more times than not, the price is impossible to beat. We saw this with the 2015 Pontet-Canet that I found at Costco for $99, and the next day saw the same bottle at Total …

2016 Castello di Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva

This is an interesting vintage of a perennial favorite Costco wine. Also, one that tends to see a wide distribution, so hopefully readers will be able to find it in their local warehouse. Historically, this wine has been at Costco for under $20. The last vintage was $17.89, but this year we’re seeing a price …

2015 Nickel & Nickel Suscol Ranch Merlot

Nickel & Nickel is easily among my top ten favorite wineries in Napa. They specialize in single vineyard expressions of different varietals from various locations in and around the Napa Valley. Nickel & Nickel was founded by the owners at Far Niente, another favorite, located right down the street. I had the chance to visit …

2015 Allegrini Palazzo Della Torre

This bottle is an absolute steal at Costco. Not only is it a delicious wine, but Costco’s price is unbeatable. Online this one runs as high as $25, and at best around $17-$18. Costco’s price is $12.99. Run don’t walk to pick these up. It’s also the perfect winter red, just pleasant throughout, great fruit, …

This year I went to three Costco stores around the Atlanta area (Woodstock, Kennesaw, Cumberland) to make sure these wines were still in stock before adding them to the list. Because …

2014 Hedges Marcel Dupont Les Gosses Red Mountain Syrah

Running into this bottle was a real surprise, particularly at a Costco in the Atlanta area.  This is a small batch Syrah from Red Mountain in Washington State’s Yakima Valley.  Normally, I would expect to see something like this limited in distribution to Costco stores near where the wine is produced, not a few thousand …

2018 Kirkland Signature Cotes du Rhone Villages

OK, this might be the most ridiculous Kirkland wine buy that we’ve ever tasted. The Kirkland CDR Villages just keeps getting better and better every year. Last year around this same time, I reviewed the 2017 vintage and bumped it up to 88 points, from a previous 87. This year there is no doubt that …

2016 Domaine Thierry Mothe Chablis Grand Cru Bougros

Whether I’m shopping at Costco, Total Wine or any of my other go to wine spots, I’m always on the look out for Chablis, and if I find Grand Cru Chablis, that’s just a bonus. Most bottles of Chablis represent an expression of Chardonnay that works for me.  I love the fruit forward approach, with …
