Another round of "one of these things is not like the other" Took wine dot com up on their 33% off coupon. All will lay down for a long (multi) Winters nap now.......

Good find! A couple of those wineries are in my back yard but they don't give deals like that. If I walk into Mark Ryan I will pay $40 for the Dissident (non-club price). Wine.com is advertising it for $37. And you got 33% off? You paid $25? Club members don't even get that discount. How do you get that coupon?

I understand economics. I lived in Alaska where oil is drilled, refined and exported. But we paid more for a gallon of fuel than most in the lower 48. Like I said, good find.

Yea I thought so as well. I order from them every now and then. Had not ordered in awhile and they sent me a coupon for $100 off a $300 order to be exact. I have verticals going on all those wines and that price was cheaper than my usual source (Full Pull). They had the latest vintage of the Dissident (which is one of my favs) for $37 before discount.

Took my bottle to San Antonio last week and had it one night with some burgers from the grill. Good QPR. Finish was a little short but for $7 who cares. It's one of those wines that will have you scratching your head about making a high end kit vs something like this right off the shelf. I think the Costco Wine Blog review was pretty spot on.

Anxious to hear your thoughts on the Malbec. I thought is was a PDG PQR.
