        Thanks. Anyone tried the Karly Zin? My parents are always looking for an "everyday" Zin to stock up on.

        1. re: Ruth Lafler

          I'll crack one open today or tomorrow and report back.

            I tried the Karly Zin at their winery and was not impressed.

              I did open it last night, and while not exceptional, it's an OK example of Amador zin. I'm not sure it's better than a $6.00 bottle from TJs, though.

            In the Redding store, they had a Robert Oakley Pinot Grigio for 2.99. It is a nice sipping wine and got scored between 89-91.
            Should retail at about 20.00

              Just got back from the Oakland store. 15 bottles: $81.20 because I couldn't pass up the Sancerre.
              Picked up:
              3: 2009 Castle Rock Pinot Noir: $6.99 (pre-sale)
              3: 2010 Mercer Yakima Riesling: $3.99 (Dry)
              2: Swallow Gew├╝rztraminer (Oregon: Dry): $3.99
              2: 2009 Pellegrini Cloverdale Ranch Alexander Valley Merlot: $7.99
              1: 2011 Lake & Vine Sauvignon Blanc: $6.99
              1: 2011 Charquino Albarino: $5.99
              2: 2009 Pope Valley Napa Valley Eagle Ranch Sangiovese: $3.99 (might not be on the shelves yet, but keep checking and/or ask Steve nicely)
              1: 2012 La Vignes aux Filles Sancerre: $15.99
              OK, time to get drinking!

            2. Lots of stock still in the Berkeley store. I liked the Fetzer syrah and Cline syrah well enough to pick up a mixed case of the two (others might not like the austerity of the Fetzer, though).
