    Two really good manufactured wines for $6.99 at the Tacoma GOs (6th and 56th, but not at Lakewood):

    – Projection Wines Winemaker’s Cut Cabernet Sauvignon 2015. Heavy bottle. big bunt, says Napa, but appellation California. 4.4 on Vivino, with 35 ratings. I opened a bottle, this is a $25-30 wine. Classic California CabS, better than Robert Mondavi of a similar ($20-25) price (way better than the $10 RM Private Selection).
    – Windstorm Zindandel Old Vine 2015 that others have said needs a few more years. Bottle is the same as the Projection CS, possible connection.

    Also, 2013 Stone Cap Rose $2.99 (RB saw it in Oly in June)

    Some real Champagne $20 ($40) Veuve de Bellay Brut (Lakewood)

    I heard the 20% off wine sale will start Nov 2. Projection CS is at the top on my list.

    Aside: seeing Gulf of Mexico small shrimp (71) for $5/lb (wild, not farmed). Plus lots of interesting frozen meals (ethnic) lately.

    I went to the Santa Cruz store today and they still have some Diableta zin a Zinfandel 2012 (7$/20$) which has been reviewed by BargainWhine on the main page. It’s worth a try, a delicious example of the old style Zin. It was wonderful with an Asian meal as well as with beef tacos. Good right off the bottle and getting better with air.
