    Default Great Wine Deal at Costco

    Was at Costco earlier today in Irvine and they had one of my favorite wines at $14.99 a bottle.

    Ghost Pines Cabernet



    For 15 bucks this is really a bargain for a Cab at this price point. If I had the money and a place to store it-totally not unreasonable to pick up a case. Its got a very balance of fruit and oak and trust me I have paid more and gotten much less. I would say given a blind tasting most would say this was a 30-40 dollar bottle.

    For the record-they also carry this at Total Wine for the same price and don't quote but maybe even give the 6 wine bottle discount so that may even be a better option but given the amount of Costcos in the US I would be remiss if I didn't mention this to my friends in blog and hockey land.

    For the record-I am pleased to announce that doing a google image search for "ghost pines cab" shows results of pics from my blog! I guess I'm moving up in the wine blogging world. Now if only producers would send me free bottles to rate and review I would really be on cloud 9....or "croud" nice as my wife might say.

    On that same note-if anyone knows of a sub 10 dollar home run value please share. With the economy the way it is a bottle of Ghost Pines may as well be Opus 1.

    Know of any good Pinot Noirs for under $10?

    I've had it and its very good. Being the wine genius I am, I bought it because I liked the name and the label is cool.

    Dont forget to always check the size of the punt on the bottom of the bottle. The bigger and deeper the punt-the better the wine is always a good rule of thumb.

    Dax-no advice on Pinot. Ive heard its nearly impossible to find a decent sub 15 bottle but that could just be bs. TJs was pitching theirs which did get a semi good review on some of the cheapo wine sites.

    Here are two I follow semi regularly.
