    I agree with this review. I just went back for more.

    TJs has BearBoat Syrah 2007 for $3.99 a bottle if you can find it.....was originally 20 bucks on Wine.com and other sites.

    Also-some of the Ralphs markets in higher end neighborhoods have great wine selections......every once in a while they will put some on clearance.We had a 1.5L bottle of 2004 Genesis Merlot that my bro picked up for $15 bucks that was fantastic.

    Nothing wrong at all with 7 Deadly Zins, 2006 (Lodi).
    Much like RR, I try to get most of my wine at Costco. Aside from most of the mass produced stuff, difference areas have different stuff. I try to hit Lake Tahoe twice a year, everytime I stop by at the Costco in Folsom. HUGE wine selection, I guess its proximity... That is the only Costco I have found this Zin, at 12 bucks a pop. I hear the 7 Heavenly Sins (Chardonnay) is very good as well, especially for the price.

    Its been about 2 years since I've seen Fat Cat in stores. Picked up the Merlot and Cab last Sundee at Henry's here in The Cuc. Fat Cat is still, to this day, by far my favorite winery both in taste and price. Their entire output never ceases to amaze me.

    Got this Bialla 2008 Cabernet at BevMo on the recommendation of a lady who was looking at it.

    "It's like you died and went to heaven" was her review.

    We were looking for something to celebrate with so this should do the trick.

    2009 Rex Hill Willamette Pinot Noir is another winner. I have seen it as low as $22.

    OK, I've been drinking wine for a couple months now so I must be an expert, right?

    Here a few faves:

    Under $10 prize goes to Rosemount which you can find at Rite Aid for $6.99 on sale.
    Under $15 prize goes to John Lohr Dark brown label
    Under $20 prize goes to LA Crema Pinot Noir - This is my "go-to" wine that is always dependable and great tasting.
    For $30 I'd recommend the wine in the previous post.
    At this point, that's the most I spend unless it's a special day. Paying more for wine than dinner is just too hard to comprehend.

    RR- looks like you're mostly a red fan, right? Not sure if the Bevmo 5cent sale is still on but, if so, try picking up a couple bottles of Henry's Dead Letter Office (AU). It's in the $40 range but at 2 for 1 becomes more than reasonable. A huge fruit bomb that goes great with smokey/bbq meats.

    Yeah I love Pinot Noir. I always avoided it because it was so trendy and it turns out it's my fave wine. Very mellow.

    I'll check out Henry's!
