Master of Wine: Best Wine Values at COSTCO

Wine Types
In this video, Bob Paulinski, Master of Wine discusses the new wine releases from Costco under the Kirkland Signature label. He tastes through and provides buying advice on six wines, plus one additional wine that is not under the Kirkland Signature label.

The wines are all under $20 per bottle, some under $10. As is typical with Costco, both prices and availability may vary by market. The wines in this video were purchased in Northern California.

2023 Kirkland Signature Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand $7.49
Pale color, green tinge, fresh, bright, zesty, lively acidity, medium intensity, crisp and clean. I’ve had many better Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, but the value is here is very good. Crowd pleaser. Good availability.

2022 Kirkland Signature Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina $6.99
One of the my favorite Kirkland wines for value from last year. The new release is also a great value. Medium deep color, purple hue, good ripe fruit character, well made, nicely balanced. A wine to buy by the case. Good availability.

2021 Kirkland Signature Bordeaux Superieur, France $6.99
This is a so-so vintage for red Bordeaux. Medium depth of color, muted, light aroma, well made, but a simple, one dimensional wine. There are better options for a value red wine in this video. Seasonal, limited availability.

2019 Kirkland Signature Rioja Reserva, Spain $7.99
30 months in oak, six months in bottle prior to release. Medium deep red, showing some slight oxidation, pretty aromatics, smokey oak, good weight, solid complexity. Mature and ready to drink now. This is a solid bargain, especially for those that prefer subtle, nuanced wines. Limited availability.

2020 Kirkland Signature St Julien, Bordeaux, France $17.99
76% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, not a typically for the Left Bank of Bordeaux. Good depth of color, round, decent weight, black fruit, cedar, very refined, soft styled red. A good wine from start to finish, there are better Bordeaux on the market from less prestigious appellations for the same money. Limited availability.

2021 Kirkland Signature Gigondas, Rhone, France $13.99
Grab it while you can! A textbook southern Rhone red, made from mostly Grenache with some Syrah and Mourvedre. Medium deep red, wonderful aroma, red and black fruit, savory, superbly balanced, a complete wine from start to finish. Limited availability.

2021 Headline Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma, CA $12.99 on promotion through April 28, 2024.
Classic Dry Creek Zin, medium deep color, red raspberry amount with spicy, savory note, full, robust, big styled red.
