Re: Grand Reserve World Mastercard - Earn up to 8x Points On BD12

So I went to the proofloyalty site and the La Jota 2016 Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon at $150 is $5 more than Wine.com, whose prices are only tolerable with a 30% off coupon.

For those of you who wash your wine glasses in the dishwasher? Do you use rinse aid? Do you purposely avoid rinse aid? Will it change the taste of wine?
