LCBO Deals 2009

  • 9

Since the other thread seems to describe only "new" deals, I thought I'd start this new one as I couldn't find another.

So, looking for deals from LCBO for anything really, but mostly wines.

Let's hear about them if you've found them.....

  1. ELDERTON ESTATE CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2005

    1. There's still a few bottles of Cherry Marnier available, marked down from $47 to $31. Check http://www.vintages.com/ for store locations.

        1. Yeah, I do go to U.S. and bring back wines, but for someone who drinks a glass or so every night, we run out pretty quickly.

          And, when I began this thread, I was hoping to get some true "deals". While I often purchase $50+ wines, those are not what I consider deals. These days there are many more options in the $10, $20, and $30 range than ever before and I was hoping those that had tried them and enjoyed them could tell us.

          1. re: FoodyGirly

            If a cheap house wine is what you're after, I find Cawarra shiraz cabernet (too) yummy at $11.00 a bottle.

          2. I haven't tried it yet but this was recently released - ROCCA DELLE MACÌE CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA 2004. $24.95

            The 1997 was superb and I just had my last one on Easter weekend :(.
            I've always had good ones from them and 2004 was a good year for the region. Hopefully it adds up.

            1. Great idea, FoodyGirly! I'm hoping JamieK ponies up some ideas...

              1. Not really in the bargain realm, but I picked up a bottle of 2004 Domaine Schlumberger Gewurztraminer that is truly an exemplary wine. Queens Quay store - normally $78, now $56. Believe me, at this price, this wine is a bargain. Try it with seared tuna and a chilled cucumber soup. You'll thank me.

                1. I don't know that this is much of a tip, since it seems to be quite popular (especially with the current Spain/Portugal promotion), but the Gazela Vinho Verde is currently $7.95 and goes nicely with a sunny deck, served very cold.
