Just a regular guy that enjoys food and wine with a concentration on wines from my home state, Washington. I'll be providing tasting notes, thoughts, and hopefully gossip and info on new and even old WA wineries.

Oh how the wine world has changed
I just received my daily wine offer from Garagiste and this one made me do a double take. 2006 Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet for $59.99. Wow! That's a $120 wine retail and I imagine that was easily fetched a couple of years ago. Not only was the wine essentially 1/2 off, but Garagiste was allowing orders up to 25 cases. 25 cases? Having a hard time selling that over-priced Cali cab, Beringer?
