Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of 2019 – Which Ones Are At Costco?

Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of 2019 – Which Ones Are At Costco?

This is always a fun post, but it relies a lot on all of our readers out there (just updated with some comments from readers, thank you).

As they do every year, Wine Spectator just released their Top 100 wines of 2019. It’s a fun list to comb through and this year they highlighted some wines I really enjoy, not all sold at Costco.

Beaucastel is a Costco wine that we always love. Costco carried the Mayacamas Chardonnay which we also love, but not the Cabernet that made the list. Pichon Baron, delicious. Branaire-Ducru is always a good value as is Domaine de Chevalier, although the price on the latter keeps going up.

Lots of fun to get into here. I’m going to point out the Costco wines that I’ve aware of, and will of course be on the lookout now on future trips. The full list with all the detail (vintages, pricing and ratings) is on the Wine Spectator site.

We need your help. Hit us up in the comments if you’ve seen any of these wines at your local Costco warehouse.

# 49 Wines of Substance Cabernet Sauvignon Washington Cs Substance was spotted today (11/26/19) in the Everett, WA Costco. Since this is a Washington State wine, I would imagine that it can be found in most Costco stores in Washington State. Cheers!
