I just wish they wouldn't mark up the better wines to mark them down. The one wine that really interests me is this 2005 Henry's Drive Flat Red Shiraz/Cab that they are selling for $45 but it sells elsewhere for $36 - $40. Have you tried it yet? I'd hate to buy 2 not having tasted it.

and as far as the malbec selection, i don't think anything he mentioned can touch this -- BevMo! - Altocedro Malbec Reserva '06

Yup. And we don't even need any kind of proof. Just make up a price even. (I work there.)

Does anyone know if Costco is a good pick for wine? I know they usually have some great deals on beer/booze, but I'm not really a wine drinker and was wondering if there prices are anygood for the quality?

Yes. Costco offers excellent prices on a variety of wines. If you are able to bring someone with you who is knowledgeable about wines and vintages you will be better off as there are usually no store employees who can help you. I always find at least one or two bottles that I have to buy at prices I'm happy to pay.

I bought a couple bottles today at Costco, but held back hoping the Bevmo $0.05 sale was still going on . . . and it looks like it is.
Gonna hit it up tomorrow.

I agree. There are a few exceptions but for the most part there's a reason they picked those bottles. I also think Wilfred Wong (or whatever his name is) is a ****ing moron. If he says it's a good wine, I skip it.
