  1. HI everyone,

    I’ll post a more lengthy note later, but this is a DELICIOUS WINE ALERT!
    Run, run, run to your Northern Ca TJ’s and grab a bottle of the 2008 Buena Vista Pinot Noir for the ridiculously cheap price of $9.99. Ladies & Gentlemen, this is a $20-25 bottle at least and your mouth will thank you. Flyer hits Monday, so ask your local store if they have it yet and seriously consider picking up a case. BTW, the 2005/2006 Buena Vista Merlot was very nice as well. The 2005 has a cork and is chewy, leathery goodness and the 2006 in the screwtop is brighter, lighter with more acidity and it won a Silver medal at the SF Chronicle Wine competition in 2010. Oh, and it’s only $8.99!

    • I am failing to see how this is a deal. Grocery Outlet has Fort Ross Pinot Noir at $12.99 right now and that’s a $38-45 retail bottle that holds its own with any bottle at that price point. With the availability of all the Deal A Day wine websites at this point, 50% off “retail” is both at the same time nothing to sneeze at and not an amazing deal.

      The Fort Ross is a phenomenal bottle of wine, a good pinot at its SRP and a fantastic deal at GO’s price.

  2. Re Grocery Outlet and other closeout stores – I’m reluctant to shop there because I’m worried about how the wine has been stored and handled turning a good deal into a bad one. Anyone have comments/experience on this?
