Picked up the last two Ch. Malescot St. Exupery for $98 each.
Not bad.
The Costco on Richmond @ Weslayan has some 2009 Owen Roe Yakima Red in stock around $30. Not an insanely good price, but it's a fantastic wine that Houston/Texas rarely sees. Last time I saw it it was on the endcap of the bins on the last aisle.
SF Costco:
96 Dom Perignon Oenotheque $300- Good
96 Billecart Salmon Close Saint Hilaire $360- Fair
06 Montrose $95- Fair
05 Harlan Estate $1000 ROFLMAO!
I don't know about others, but I really am finding very little value in keeping a Costco membership anymore... Meats are priced at or above my butcher, buying 14 pounds of Mushrooms does me little good as it is just me and my girlfriend, and even the booze is at or above what I can find on sale. If having a party, it's a convenient spot, but I rarely find myself there anymore.

I think my wife and your girlfriend would get along. Mrs. Glennk added to her Bottega Veneta collection for a cool $4K recently. They did open 96 Dom for her while she shopped. Smile

Glenn, a great buy, and I'm serious.

I bought one for D a few years ago, and something happened to it ( do not recall the details) and she called the store about repair. The purse was sent off, completely repaired including a new lining at no cost. D was told the purse should have not looked so bad after the accident. Smile

D also sent one of her older BV in for a cleaning about 10 years ago, and it again came back looking great with new hardware, new lining and such.

S will enjoy her new purchase for decades to come.

Your Mrs. has impeccable taste (glancing at my Bottega Veneta billfold). Wink And BV has good taste... 96 Dom? I need to go shopping with the GlennKs! I usually only get a Perrier thrown my way.

To paraphrase the renowned urban "philosopher", one L'il Wayne......."you need a project chick".

Sounds like a plan... Lil' Wayne is a smart cat- I will rock a pair of million dollar, diamond encrusted Beats Headphones, and toss an old Sony Walkman to my lady. I guess that's why he has like 7 kids with 5 different women. Smile

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.
