Black Friday isn't just about electronics, toys, and appliances. It's for winos too! Here's a few Black Friday wine sales that crossed my desk and caught my attention this week:
Blanchards West Roxbury, MA
20-60% off select items, including the 2006 Glaetzer Amon Ra Shiraz. I'm looking forward to seeing how low the price goes on the Amon Ra. @QPRKings tells me the lowest he's seen it is $80 so we'll set the over/under there. The sale is supposed to be posted Friday at 12:15AM- we shall see!
Update: Prices are now up. Amon Ra is at $64.97, Chappellet Pritchard Hill at $89.97, and Radio Coteau at $39.97. Harlan Estate at $599.97 if anyone wants to buy me a gift. ;) Pretty amazing deals- definitely the best Black Friday wine sale I've seen this year!

Bin Ends Wine in Braintree, MA
10% off everything online and in-store, including items in the bins! Bin Ends has great wines at great prices across the board, but depending on how you time it, the "bins" at the back of the store provide best values of all. I picked up a half-bottle of 2002 Ridge Monte Bello for $30 earlier this year- compare at $445 for same on the wine list at The French Laundry.
