Nice. The Costco here only has the Kirkland brand stemware.

I've noticed that once they start gearing up for Christmas (about 6 weeks ago Roll Eyes) they tend to bring in some finer stemware.

The one in Kendall is supposed to be the best one in Miami-Dade, but I don't know first hand. I'm going to the one near Mall of the Americas this weekend. If I don't get stabbed, I'll report back.

Looking for value .... Trione Vineyards Russian River Pinot .... compare at $30 for 2008 .... Carlsbad CA has approx 160 left ( after I got an extra 24 ) .... Costco # 707685 ....

Not a sweet Dr. Pepper type -- just a hint of barnyard ... really nice Pinot and for $14 ( in Canada this is totally unheard of )

Greg
ps - Carlsbad is a great place to handle winter from

yes, the Costco in Kendall (120 St) has a nice selection of higher end wines. I remember from memory, Beaucastel CdP, Mondavi Cab Reserve, Opus One and others.

The one in North Palm Beach usually has a nice selection of higher end wines: usually some bordeaux and Cal. cabs.

The one in Lake Worth is also supposed to be pretty good. I haven't been done there in a long time.

I shopped there frequently in the past but not as much now. I used to trust their info cards, but after I purchased a "91 point WS" wine it turned out to actually be 88pts and have a different flavor profile (and yes I did verify vintage)... still useful for wines I know though. For new wines I am still somewhat of a point whore as I continue to learn my palate.
Oh and if you are interested check the offline thread for a MPLS offline (off-topic I know but many don't check that forum often).

Phoenix Costco at Cave Creek and 101 has 2005 La Tour figeac for 39.99 and 2005 Ch. Franc Mayne for ?? I thought it was unusual to see some 05's come out. Other Costcos in town are showing some closeouts at a moderate savings. Nothing phenomenal though.

The 0.97 ending usually means it's been marked down, and usually substantially. Nice one, DWG!

I picked up a bottle of 20 yr old Kirkland Speyside single malt for $45 last week. It's pretty nice, but tastes more like a 12 year speyside than a 20. I'm not going back for more, but I'll definitely run through this bottle with ease.

I found this blog, www.costcowineblog.com, almost all Costco wines are reviewed and described with tasting notes. I find it helpful and interesting.

Of this and that endeavour and dispute;
Better be jocund with the fruitful grape
Than sadden after none, or bitter, fruit.
