...and not bad on the lazy weekends either.

PAXIS, It is a red blend from Portugal and it is a solid red that shouldn't embarrass even Mr. Gilmore when served. It has shoulders, not a bit thin or watery - check it out.

Costco is selling the stuff for just $5.99 per bottle and it is every bit as good as many reds that sell for 4 or 5 times that much. They are blowing it out of the local Costco according to my cashier. It won a 90 rating from the gurus that keep track of such things.

Come on Mr. G., get reckless and score a bottle of two so you can cut me off at knees for even suggesting such a low end vino. :)

Whoa, that is considerably more than the 79 cents I was paying for a fifth of ripple in 1970, but then when you consider inflation it might be even cheaper.

Yes Ron but Ripple didn't have the "shoulders" that a nice Boone's Farm strawberry had..

You are too late. We bought two bottles last weekend. They also had a good Languedoc from Gerard Bertrand, at 9.99 that's very good. And a Malbec at 6.99 that's good.

The Portuguese Reds seem to have big shoulders and real depth. We have some Touriga Nacional that was $15 a bottle, yet tastes like it's a $50 or 70 red.

Ah yes, and let's not forget Zapple, that rare blend of cinnamon and apple. That was right up there with Fred Sanford's Sipple, 7up and ripple mixed.
