Picked up the 2017 Kirkland Signature Columbia Valley red blend for $17. This was a pretty phenomenal value, made by the winemaker overseeing Long Shadows. If you see it in your local Costco, give it a try.

No Columbia valley in Boca yet. Still no 2008 dom either and when I ask the wine guys, they seem to have no idea what I’m even talking about.

That said, grabbed a Tenshan red 17 and Lavau Gigondas 15, each under $20

Cool think about Costco in the UK... they deliver booze...FOR FREE. Pricing is decent too. Selection isn't as good as some of you have in the US, but it's definitely better than what I had in New Orleans. Picked up some Henriot, Pol Roger and 2006 Tondonia for very nice prices. And by 'picked up' I mean 'unpacked from boxes that were delivered to my house'.

Scottsdale location has VCC 2nd label. 2015 La Gravette de Certan for $70. Bought a case, popped one that night, went back today for more. Wonderful sultry wine (for Bordeaux anyway).

I believe I might have seen it in Concord a couple of weeks ago, but it looked very pricey.

Henderson, NV location has Dom 2008 and 2009 for $155, Cristal 08 for $220, and Pontet Canet 2014 for $90. Dom and Pontet in the isles and one bottle of Cristal in the case and they said they have a lot in the back.
Damn. I'd buy out the Pontet at that price.

Nothing special but I am enjoying the Kirkland Prosecco, especially given the humble price tag

Not sure if there's a better thread for this, but the Wine Enthusiast 300 bottle cellar just got a $200 discount through 7/14 (or while supplies last). Haven't seen many deals on cellars lately, so nice to grab over the summer while waiting on Fall shipments. :)

Lucked into these. Checked availability at other Costcos in the region, and the few places with them left had 1 or 2........

I have 2 of these side-by-side, bought both on sale at Costco. SO far, they’ve been great. I like the side-facing shelves in the middle, and the storage is pretty flexible. Shelves are wood and smooth-rolling.

I knew they were going to hit the .97, was hoping to be lucky and be there when they did. Nice score! (have you tried one? I have one bottle that I was going to check out and haven't gotten around to it)

I almost did but ended up putting it back for some reason....and of course now have wine-remorse.

I'll be back early next week and will probably snag one then unless someone here tells me that I shouldn't.

Went to our Costco to check out the Bichot and they’re still full price. Did find 2016 Mondavi Oakville Cab on sale for 35 through August.
