Wine bargains in Roseville

The Big Lots store on E. Harding (off Douglas) in Roseville is a good place for finding medium-priced wines at deep cut discount. Normally there aren't enough bottles of one thing to write about here on Chowhound, but I was in the store today and they have several pallets full of cases of Hunter Ashby wine. The 2000 Cab Sauv is $1.99 and better than any two dollar wine I have ever had. It is in a lightly oaked, thin and smooth style, almost Bordeaux like, but still has a bit of that sugar jamminess common to bargain wines.
The 2000 Hunter Ashby Chardonnay is only 99 cents a bottle, and has a very pale color, hardly any oak, and the kind of restraint that I enjoy in a table wine. It's pretty close to the end of its career, so would be best consumed within 2005.
Both wines are cellared and bottled by Tangley Oaks in Rutherford, California.
I believe both of these wines are great values, and as of today there is a huge quantity of cases at the store.
I have seen good wine values in other Big Lots stores in California, but would advise people to buy just one bottle for a start and see how you like it before you decide to buy a huge quantity.
