      All gone at the other places, except for the Cab at 12.99

              Sorry, didn't buy the Geewhiz.

              Remember that Grocery Outlet has a liberal return policy. You can take dissatisfactory bottles back for refund if you hold onto the receipt.

                My SO got a bottle at the Redwood City store. It's drinkable, but a maybe a bit past it's prime, has a slightly sour finish.

              According to the Oakland Wine Guy, this Gewurtz was a bit past its prime and he wouldn't put it out.

              I picked up 2 of the 2010 Lazy Creek Riesling, 2 2010 Lazy Creek Rose of Syrah, 2 2007 Wild Oak by St. Francis Syrah, 2 2010 Tamas (a sub-label of Wente) Double Decker Red (Cab, Petite Sirah & Barbera), 1 2010 Jeriko Estate Grenache and 1 2010 Wilson-Daniels Pinot Noir and only spent $48.76 after discount.
              That averages out to about $5.42 a bottle.
              Hope everyone else found good buys.

                BWS, did you try the Wilson-Daniels Pinot? I was hoping to like it a lot more than I did. Not bad tasting but really had no real character to my palate. I liked the W-D Chard a bit more.

                1. re: KatoK

                  Nope, not yet. I figured it would be nice to have an "everyday" Pinot in the house and for about $5, it'll probably be serviceable. But of course I'm keeping my receipt just in case.

                  I've had the Wild Oak before and liked it and I'm really looking forward to both Lazy Creeks. I poured the Tamas Double Decker Red at SFChefs a few years ago and remember it being good and I was lucky to snag the Jeriko since I loves me some Grenache.

            3. Today's the last day.

              2008 Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva magnums (1.5 liter), $22.99

              I bought mine in Petaluma yesterday. Also spotted in Oakland, Berkeley and Seaside. This is one of my favorite chianti producers, very traditional style that needs bottle age. I haven't tasted this yet but it would be a screaming buy even without the additional discount.
