#s 9 and 10 "revealed" today. Does anyone really care about this anymore?
I can’t say I’m all gung-ho, but it adds something for me. I’ve been floating 2 mortgages for a bit now, so my wine budget went from diminutive (for this crowd) to pretty much Costco only (not so bad as I bought 4 x 2015 Monsanto CCR for $19.99 per a couple of weeks ago; my local Costco has sold out of the 2015 Rocca di Macie for the same price which has been the best 2015 CCR I’ve had so far, the Volpaia which i’ve yet to uncork).
So i’m not too proud to say I’m more of a 11-100 value shopper, and picked up the marchesi di Barolo barbera (tasty and memorable of the barberas I drank when I lived in Italy), the A-Z chard (meh), and the Charles Smith aka wine spectator darling, CS, sitting on the kitchen counter. There is a Bandol rose’ in somewhere in the new fridge...
