Cheapo Wine Pick Of The Week
1999 Trinity Oaks Zinfandel, $4.99 at Bel Air Market. This is good shit. Tastes like a ten dollar bottle of wine. Looks and smells good too. The 1999 label isn't as pretty as the one pictured here, but don't let that fool you. At that price, i could drink two bottles tonight, but i won't.

Have you tried Two Buck Chuck? You can get it at Trader Joe's. Straight from Napa.
Can't recommend two buck chuck at any price. Its jammy and unpleasant. I found the white chuck undrinkable. I had heard that it is really just the old Franzia box wine repacked. I don't know if its true, but very believable
By the way, if you want to spend a couple more bucks, try one of the Seghesio Family vineyards zins. Its getting more expensive as recognition grows, but the wines are bold with decent structure, and still obtainable at a $15-20 price point.
Spendthrifts!!! Go down to Vons, and get a six pack of their private label "Searidge" Merlot at about $3 a bottle. With the ten percent discount, one can afford to bathe in the stuff. Witness my newly acquired swarthy complexion.
That Searidge would cost me about $4,000 including airfare from Chicago! You are looking fabulous though Casca.
You poor bastard, I've seen the wine aisle at Luckys... screwtop Lambrusco, and two dollar champagne with plastic corks. Did I mention that the Santa Annas are blowing, and it was 80 on the beach today? Mwahahahahaha!!!
Easy Casca, $4,000 for wine and the elimination of an on-line mocker is begining to look like a great deal!
I couldn't tell from the picture, was that a screw off lid or a will I need a church key?
