Grocery Outlet Wine Sale 3/7-3/11 - What are you buying?

So it is here again. One of my favorite times of year.

Things I know are outstanding values BEFORE discount:
2008 Fort Ross Pinot Noir 'Symposium' IF you can find it. This wine competes with any Pinot I've had in the $35-45 range at a small fraction of the cost. I just visited Iron Horse and Fort Ross' Pinot is just as good.
Any of the $10 Atlas Peak Cab. As above
$7.99 Cosentino 'Edie Brown' Meritage (recently on WineSpies for $18)

What are your choices? IMHO, the sale is best utilized for $10+ bottles that are heavily discounted rather than getting that $2.99 Sauvignon Blanc to $2.39.

I don't know much about a lot of the French Red I'm seeing right now. San Pablo and Oakland look to have very solid selections and will probably gear up for the sale.
