Grabbed both the '17 Kirkland Premiere Cru Chablis (19.99) and '16 Caparzo Rosso di Montalcino (14.99) at the Atwater/Los Feliz Costco. Both were pretty darn satisfying for their price points. I saw the Kirkland Gigondas there as well and may pick it up next time.
Chablis was decent, maybe not 'premiere cru' level but at 19.99 no complaints. White flowers, green apple, steely, mineral. Caparzo was an easy cheap Sangio, blackberry, cherry, tobacco, earth. Good daily drinkers.

The 2010 Caparzo Rosso was really good too. I hardly ever buy rosso's but would definitely drink that again off a list, wine bar or what not.

My local Costco is still keeping some of the 2008 Cristal in their will call secure area. Every damn time I shop, I pass that window, look into that small room and see the damn yellow plastic wrapped bottles staring back at me. I've walked past the window the past few months but I think one more is gonna go home with me here soon.
My best wines for 2020:
2014 Marie Courtin Champagne Efflorescence Extra Brut

My best wines for 2019:
2014 Marie Courtin Eloquence BdB Extra Brut
2017 Rivers-Marie PN Platt SC
2009 Roederer Cristal Brut

Kindness matters.

I really enjoyed the Gigondas (for 15 bucks).

Our Atlanta area Costco had a good bit of '15 Haut-Bages Liberal last time I was in. 39.99 I think.

That dream came true to me. I bought it at $189 but I was in Calgary in Canada (paid CAD 250). Now it's sold out though.

My local Costco is still keeping some of the 2008 Cristal in their will call secure area. Every damn time I shop, I pass that window, look into that small room and see the damn yellow plastic wrapped bottles staring back at me. I've walked past the window the past few months but I think one more is gonna go home with me here soon.
just remember if you upgrade your membership its 2% back on that wine... so its really $4 cheaper than what they have it listed at!

Tulsa - all 19.99/bottle
2015 Kirkland Signature Barolo - bought several bottles. Think this is the first Barolo from Kirkland. Tried and I think it is very good buy. Seems like pretty pure Nebbiolo with little to no oak that I can detect. Will admit I have had pretty limited Barolo/Barbaresco tasting experience
2017 Kirkland Signature Oakville Cab -
