Testing an 'over oaked' red that I knocked together in 2016. Having opened the bottle I’m committed to drinking it. I'll definitely be leaving the other bottles at least another 2 years under the house.

My own creation from 2012. El Peso Pesado or "The Heavyweight"! Just now hitting the sweet spot and drinking spectacular with a 40 min decant. Paired wonderfully with leftover brisket from Monday.. 75% Cab Sauv, 15% Syrah, 10% Zinfandel. All made from CA grapes back when I had a fantastic source. If your making wine and its not ready for 6-7 years. You are doing something right! LOL

Drinking a 2 year old bottle of rhubarb wine that I had lost in the other wine in the rack. The extra year of aging made an amazing difference. I have a new rule now for my rhubarb wine - 2 years aging in the bottle.

At Costco, $6.99 plus tax. Too cheap to be true?
This is for tomorrow.

I bought that one awhile back. Pretty good for $7.
That is good to know.
I'll see how this one compares to the Cup Cake (really good SV at the price), which is now up to $9.99 at Costco.

Well well, this Sauvignon Blanc at this price point is an excellent choice, I’d buy this in a heart beat.!!

Pear on the nose, nice and pleasant minerals and right acidity for me, hands down really good.

For about $7.40 out the door......do I need to say more?

Considering that an Eclipse NZ Sauv Blanc will cost you ~$5 a bottle plus corks, label, shrink cap on top of that......... $7 for something all you have to do is put in the fridge and crack the cap on demand......
