2019 Famille Gourjon Chateau Font Barriele Les Vignes d’Heloise Costieres-de-Nimes

Ok, this one is straight up a personal pick. There’s lots of words in the title above but the key ones are “Costieres-de-Nimes.” This is a great area of Rhone that is frequently overlooked, and I was pumped to see one of these bottles hit Costco stores, potentially for the first time that we’ve ever …

2019 Kirkland Signature Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The new Kirkland wines just keep flowing. In the past few weeks, we’ve reviewed the latest vintages of the Kirkland Premier Cru Chablis, Kirkland Oakville Cabernet, Kirkland Cotes du Rhone Villages, and the Kirkland Sancerre. All get a thumbs up from us, except the Cotes du Rhone that was a little lackluster this time around. …

2020 Kirkland Signature Cotes du Rhone Villages

The Atlanta area must be the last place in the world to get this bottle. I’ve heard from readers for many months talking about the new Kirkland Cotes du Rhone Villages, and on my pretty-much-weekly trips to Costco, I have been consistently disappointed not to find it. Until now. It’s impossible to beat this price …

2019 Kirkland Signature Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

Among Costco wines, particularly those in the Kirkland portfolio, it is really hard to beat the Oakville Cabernet for $20. This new 2019 vintage arrived right on time, usually Feb-March. We’re happy to see the price stay the same at $19.99. It was $18.99 a few years back but has been holding steady at $19.99 …

2019 Kirkland Signature Series Premier Cru Chablis

Finally, for the first time, we didn’t skip a vintage on the Kirkland Chablis. For some reason, this one either doesn’t always appear near us, it sells out fast, or it skips a vintage. I think it’s a combination of the first two. But we found it this time, and there’s good news right off …

McClean Vineyards LOVE Red Blend Paso Robles

We’re always on the lookout for something new and different on Costco wine shelves, and this bottle certainly fit the bill. We didn’t know the producer, there’s no vintage listed, looks like a field blend of a bunch of different grapes, interesting bottle design and we weren’t sure what we were getting into exactly. But …

2019 Kirkland Signature Bordeaux Superieur

Kirkland’s Bordeaux Superieur is always an interesting bottle. Some people love it, some don’t, and our opinion seems to sway with every vintage. This new 2019 vintage changes things up a bit. First, the price actually decreased by $1, down to $6.99. It has always been $7.99, so a welcome change there. The blend changed …
