2017 Bodegas Muriel Pazo Cilleiro Rias Baixas Albariño

I’ve found a few new whites on my last couple trips to Costco, and love to put them in the mix as an alternative to Sauvignon Blancs and Chardonnays. Next up on the review list is a Gavi priced at $11.99. Albariño is one of my favorites.  Here’s one that Costco is selling at a …

2014 Seborio de Barahonda Nirea Yecla

Yecla is a sometimes overlooked region in Southeastern Spain that consistently delivers good value priced wines, predominantly made up of the Monastrell grape (which is the ame as Mourvedre).  But it’s an area that should certainly be on the radar of red wine fans looking for bang for their buck. This bottle is a perfect …

2012 12 Linajes Reserva Tempranillo Ribera del Duero

Long time readers will know that I love my Ribera del Duero wines, so when I see a new one, like the 12 Linajes, arrive in my Costco stores, it’s almost a no brainer.  I can’t think of a time in recent years when the Ribera wines at Costco didn’t deliver a lot of bang …

2013 Bodegas La Horra Corimbo Ribera del Duero

Here’s another Spanish wine gem that I scored at my Costco for $21.99.  I say ‘another’ because there seems to be a stream of awesome bottles from Ribera, Toro and Rioja in that sweet spot of $15-$25 that I have found to generally be super strong buys. Our latest reviews of this Toro wine and …

2012 Bodega Carmen Rodriguez Carodorum Seleccion Especial Reserva Toro

Almost instinctively, I will purchase new wines that I find from Spain’s Toro region because they are some of the best buys in the wine world today.  So obviously, I love when they pop up at Costco. This bottle was of particular interest, initially due to its massive weight in the hand but also for …
