Sounds like a great deal. Buy one bottle get a second identical bottle of wine for one of Sammy Hagar's nickels. Except.....
BevMo! Price: 19.99
Yellow Tail Shiraz:
BevMo! Price: 15.99
Cost Plus Price: 7.99 (6.99 here)
For the record, Yellow Tail Shiraz isn't my wine but Henderson is OK with it. You may be as well.
Been hearing about this joint for a while now and we were pleased when one opened recently just a mere nine miles down the godforsaken ever-brown dusty hill at the Crossings. BevMo! has a nice, well organized selection of wines, a friendly staff, and the store is cool. Yet, TWC remains somewhat unimpressed.
A casual stroll down the aisles leaves the impression that the prices just aren't that great. At best, they're just okay. The high end stuff is over priced. The mid range Saturday night red that one hopes will persuade the blond in the corner loft to see you in an entirely more romantic light is also overpriced.
Hot Tip: Sometime contributor, Milton, insists that the bottom shelf at BevMo! is where the bargains are.
Like the man said, ya pays yer money and ya takes yer chances. I'll keep mine, thankee. I'm a capitalist myself but I fail to see the merit in making things appear to be something they aren't. Sure, we all want good value, but absent Peronista style inflation, Yellow Tail Shiraz will never be a sixteen dollar wine. Cue the rumble of printing presses in DC. Until next year, anyway. [rimshot!!]
What you, the wine consumer, is getting is two bottles at market price. $7.99 each. May not be BevMo!'s market price, but it certainly is somebody's market price.
As always, we appreciate your patronage.
