Yeah, It would be rare to walk into a BevMo and ask the person working there to recommend a bottle of Chardonnay that was aged in either a stainless tank or French oak and have them point you in the right direction. You have a higher probability of finding decent help in Trader Joe's actually.
Wow that's rough, we're still learning alot on the wine front. Never really thought of trader joe's as a place to check out for wine. Might try that for ****s and giggles. Can't wait until it's finally warm enough to go back to the napa, at least then if the wine sucks the view is usually good.
Four Vines Heretic ftw! Beautiful Old vine Petite Sirah. Go and get it. Now.
FYI....Jim Fox gave some recomendations at the end of the last episode of LGK Talk.

10 bucks at Trader Joe's... enjoy!
So we had a good time with the Cupcake Malbec and some strips from Sams Club. For $7 a bottle I'm willing to try it again.
