Unbelievable Bargain: Magnum of '98 Caymus Special Selection @$119.95

For those who are into serious wine the Costco in Sterling has eleven magnums left (I bought one) of '98 Caymus Special Selection Cabernet for $119.95. This is not one of the best years for this wine but, still it IS Caymus Special Select (!). On Winesearcher and WineCommune it is selling for $300 and up for the same magnum. This is also the same store that I found 8 bottles of '99 Chateau St. Jean Cinq Cepages (Wine Spectator's #2 wine of year) for $59.95 on Thursday (I bought all of them.) On Wine Commune it is already well over $100 per bottle and Winesearcher lists it as high as $140 per bottle. Costco has dramatically upgraded their wine selection over the last year or so and occasionally, as now, there are real "bargains" out there. I realize that bargain is a relative term but for serious wine like this when you can buy it for half of its regular price it's worth considering. The Total in Sterling is selling '98 Caymus SS for $149 per 750 ml bottle (!) and the Total in McLean had sold out of '98 Chateau St. Jean. They sold it for $109.
