Yesterday afternoon there were a few markdowns to be found at the Laird/Wicksteed store:

2012 Tenimenti d'Alessandro Syrah Cortona Il Bosco - reduced from $62 to $43.45 (I like this wine and ~$40 seems like a decent value to me.)

2013 Petra - reduced from $75 to $52.25 (The price seems excellent. I tasted this wine from an earlier vintage and found it very tannic and oaky; however, the wine had just been bottled and may have benefited with some cellar time.)

2012 Rocca delle Macìe Sergio Zingarelli Gran Selezione Chianti - reduced from $100 to $70 (James Suckling may love it but you would have to have your judgement questioned for paying $70 for a Chianti made by Macie.)

1954 De Muller Aureo Seco Anejo - reduced from $40 to $21.25

I bought a 6 pack of the 06. Tried one last year and it was a total mess.
Thanks, guys. I didn't notice the others but considered buying the Petra but didn't. Bought a bit of this and a bit of that but nothing on sale. The PC told me all the good stuff was gone.

Was happy to get some 2011 Convento San Francisco Special Selection Reserva because I got some 2005 a couple of years ago and loved it.

Mercifully, the only one on the list above I might have bought is the amarone. If there were lots of New World bottles similarly reduced, however, well, I don't want to know!
Hmm, seemed to be a good weekend to scoop up some goodies. Here is what I found at Southdown and Lakeshore in Mississauga (all 20% off).

2010 BdM Andretta Reserva
2009 Chateau La Croix du Casse Pomerol
2012 Barolo Gramolere
2015 CdP Mas de Boislauzon

There were at least 10-15 decent products on sale and quantities (yesterday) were still good.
