A Yummy Buy At Costco

The Costco in Edison has booze.

It is really really good that it is a half hour away, otherwise, well, the temptations would fully overwhelm me. I picked up a few bottles of this for $7.50

A very full bodied, smooth merlot. Yes, I know that merlot is so passe these days but I quite like a nice one, and for the price this hits the ticket.

It went very nicely with the blackened tilapia on a bed of risotto surrounded in a most artistic fashion by canned green beans that I made for dinner last night!

    Canned green beans! Horrors! The tilapia would surely think it deserved better.

    Oh don’t worry, he never goes hungry!

    Bogle make a very nice Cab as well.

    Did you raise the Tilapia in your own rice paddy?

  6. Mr. Bingley says:

    Was that you peeking in my backyard mojo?

    On the Bogle front they also make a nice “old vine” zinfandel.

    I don’t know what is supposed to distinguish “old Vine” zinfandel from zinfendel but there you are.

    Age mostly, I imagine.

    And, on the “old-vine” front, you might check out Michael David Winery’s “7 Deadly Zins”, old-vine grapes from 7 different Valley winerys.

    The old vines are, from what I understand, actually “old vines”! Some of the labels I’ve perused talk about them being 70-90+ years old, and they claim this makes for a more concentrated flavor in the fruit. I do find some of those Zins extremely yummy.
