Retailers seem to be bashing themselves over the head trying to offer the lowest price on the planet for the 2012 Caymus Cabernet. And when retailers compete, consumers win.
It's surprising to see Caymus in particular going so low. I seem to recall them raising their price the last couple vintages as the recession lifted and premium wines were selling more briskly. Whereas you could find the 2009 and earlier for $59.99 at discount retailers, the 2010/2011 were selling for a bit more - say in the upper $60s.
There have been quite a few offers for the 2012 in the $54.99 range but I spotted one today for just $52/btl when you buy a 12 bottle case. That's a rather amazing deal especially considering there is no sales tax on wine in Massachusetts.
