Nothing better than a little 6-pack delivery on a Friday afternoon!

Costco run today (more to follow in the "What's for Dinner" thread), and I picked up a couple of these. At $8.99, even if they're only halfway decent, it's still a deal.

The spoils of a Costco from from yesterday in SA, TX visiting my mom and oldest daughter for a few days. The real find (steal) is the 14' Gorman "Old Scratch" Cab Sauv from Red Mountain, WA. 93pts WS and all of $23.99. Amazing drinking window. They had a whole wooden bin full. I will be going back before I leave..... Bought 2 before the scores came out, after the scores came out they sold out in a matter of a few weeks. Then the 2015 Kirkland Signature CV Red Wine is the latest edition and the winemaker is non other than Gilles Nicault of Longshadows fame. A whopping $15.99 and it spent 15mo in once used French Oak. The Kungfu Girl Riesling is simply one of the best Rieslings you will ever put in your mouth and a whopping $8.50 a bottle. Rounded off with a hmmmmmm purchase of an Argentinian Finca Rose' of Malbec for only $8. The Rielsing will be going down tonight as it is being paired with a pan of Kirkland Chicken Alfredo that I will be kicking up a notch or two with the addition of some Hatch green chile.

That was exactly my thought. It's a little flat, lacking some brightness and minerality (and maybe even fruit) I was hoping to find. But overall, pretty good for nine bucks.

Was happy these guys made it in during a brief cool period.

WA says" 94+, Lastly, the 100% Petite Sirah 2013 Landy Sweetwater Springs Vineyard is another 200-case cuvée from a steep hillside vineyard planted in loamy clay and alluvial soils. This wine spent 16 months in 100% new French oak prior to being bottled. It is a powerhouse at 15.5% natural alcohol. Absolutely sensational Petite Sirah, right up there with some of the greatest from California, this killer effort has an inky purple color and a beautiful nose of blueberries, black raspberries, blackberries and floral notes, but it is remarkably concentrated, full-bodied and multi-dimensional. The wine has incredibly sweet tannins and seems to have absorbed the 100% new French oak without a hiccup. This beauty is a full-bodied, bigger-than-life Petite Sirah that should drink well for 20+ years."
