I opened one this past weekend. Better times are ahead, but it’s still fantastic at the moment. Since they’re currently available, every time I’ve opened one from my stash I’ve ordered two more.

Cheers,
Warren

I’ve done the same. Enjoying one tonight. Never seen a bottle of Dom sell for less 10 years later, have you?

Nope. I’ve never seen one drink this well so soon after release either.

Have a great weekend, Alan.

This is the type of deal I’m holding out for, afraid it may not come my way though at this point.

I grabbed some at $160 and will open it at home with a nice meal - will not add restaurant costs to it!

Central Market in Dallas had 20% off 6 or more recently. I got them for around 138$ if I remember that correctly. I popped 1 for research about a month ago and agree no other young DP I have had was this approachable.

Texas is well stocked. Sugar Land Costco seems to have an unending supply at $149. The attached liquor store had (emphasis on had) two bottles of 09 Cristal for $180 on the shelf wedged between bottles of Evan Williams. champagne.gif

Does Costco do case discounts?

Costco does not have case discounts. They occasionally have discounted prices on bottles of wine but that seems to be only on lower end bottles or a final bottle they are trying to get rid of. I'd be very surprised to see Dom discounted there.

Douglas Breen - when I was there last week I only saw the 2009. I will have to go back. Thanks! (If you are local, lets do a Santa Cruz offline sometime - I am tired of driving over the hill!)

There are several people in Los Gatos and the mountains who would be interested in Santa Cruz offlines!

Only a deal if you would be paying for shipping and/or state taxes otherwise, but Zurich airport duty free had 2008 Dom for $168 (or a touch under - $ and ChF are about parity). With 10% sales tax in DC, I almost bit but figured the carrying hassle wasn't worth it . . .
