After spending a few months in the states, I've actually come to appreciate BCLS's wine selection, ironic as it may sound. Sure, the prices are higher and the choices are often limited at the smaller location, but at least the few good staples I've found are always consistently there, and the online stock system works well. This is in comparison to the illusion of variety down in the states, where it's definitely more convenient to grab a bottle at a supermarket in a pinch, but the chances of hunting down exactly what you want, when you want it, is actually pretty slim for me.
Currently I'm looking forward to opening a bottle of Torbreck Woodcutters Shiraz, which is nice staple wine for me that I've failed to find consistently in the states. What are you favourite staple BCLS wines? I'm talking about bottles that
1) gets stocked regularly at BCLS
2) reasonably price, say under $35
