For your consideration while you're running your weekend errands...
I received these tips in an E-mail from a reader. I thought to pass them along especially because they align so well with the way I shop for wine. These shops are in the Boston MetroWest area:
- Stop by Post Road Liquors in Wayland, MA where they have the long sought after 2005 Columbia Crest Reserve (95WS/$27 Release Price). This is the first I've heard of this wine in MA. I believe the Post Road price is $38, which is a little high, but you may be able to get it down towards $30 with a mixed case purchase. There have been reports of finding it for less than $20 at Costco (though that sighting came from Plano, TX) so it may be a good time to buy at least a bottle while they have it.
- Head over to Costco in Waltham, MA where they have 2 newer wines that were highly rated by Wine Spectator:
The 2006 Four Vines Zinfandel Paso Robles "Biker" is available for $18.99. The release price of this wine was $25, so this is a great price. With similar quality-to-rating metrics as the highly touted Seghesio Sonoma County Zinfandel that landed in the Top 10 of Wine Spectator's Top 100 list I'll give this one a try for sure.
The 2006 Querciabella Chianti Classico (WS91, $32 Release Price) that landed at #81 on the Top 100 list is available for $23.99.
