Pinot Noir on sale!

Just a heads-up: Costco stories in Southern California (LA and San Diego) are selling the Castle Rock Pinot Noir for $7.49 a bottle! What a steal for such a yummy wine.

Castle Rock Pinot Noir: Two thumbs up!

Thanks for the great tip on Castle Rock. I have tried the 2006 Pinot Noir from Mendocino and the one labeled Cuvee and they both are great! Terrific wine for the price ($10).
