Places to buy caviar in Phoenix area?

Usually not a caviar type diner but we had a wonderful caviar-and-egg dish at Jean Georges in NYC a couple weeks back (probably his signature dish) and I can sorta duplicate it for my wife's birthday since the recipe is in one of his books we own, if only I can find decent caviar. This would be the first time I've actually bought caviar in a store and I've only had it served in restaurants maybe 3-4 times, so I'm not really up on the concept.

I'm guessing AJ's or Whole Foods is a possible source (we're not too far to either store) but would listen to other suggestions ... or even mail-order, though it looks confusing with all the options. The caviar in NYC was apparently from the central California coast and was black, so I'm not sure if it was farmed sturgeon or ? but it wasn't salmon roe.

Anyway, suggestions welcomed ...
