    Update on the Brunello...
    Would not buy, again. This really surprised me!
    I liked it and it was very good, but I think my tastes are for something far less tart (which I believe fancy folks would say "more tannin than I care for").
    Would buy at $15-$20 but this was $28.

    It was a great chance to learn that I care not for high tannins, though!
    Interesting… I would venture a guess and say you drank right after opening? Did you kill the bottle? It’s “only” a 2016… for sure benefits from breathing a bit. If you still have some left give it another try today. Would bet it’s drinking better now. Last one I drank I opened in the morning and drank with dinner. Almost drank like a Pinot… or could just have felt that light due to coming from a heavy gran reserva prior to

    Yes, but I always aerate into a decanter and then pour back into the bottle. I have trouble believing that anything needs to sit further after that.

    Fair… I do find that aeration vs just having the bottle open for Xhrs is a different effect. Might be in my head though.

    The great thing about wine is they make one for everyone, at least now you know

    Totally agree.
    Although I'm still surprised something so widely popular didn't feel like such a treat. Maybe I'll try one more but I bet it's sold out.
    Although... The other two tasters weren't overly enthused about it either...
    So confuse.

    It was our second bottle of the evening, but split between 3 folks, so I don't think it's like we were sauced. Was the Brunello another one that is curiously strong, as well? Never mind, I checked and it is a surprising 14.5%.

    The earlier bottle was a much cheaper Cab, so maybe that was the difference. Liberty School, I think.

    The Italian B’s are popular in the family… so I’ve had a fair amount. Even did a willowpark park night that was exclusively only those wines in the before times. While of course there are much nicer brunello’s out there I do find this Kirkland bottle holds its own, especially at the price

    Had a nice bottle at Modern Steak tonight.

    But as @ercchry pointed out... It has laminated menus. You can't unsee that shit.

    Ha! I bet you went to the Moxie's one, too! Dirty southerner!
    Stopped by Stellantis and made an offer on Shak's trade-in, as well?

    I did. It certainly has a slight whiff of Moxie's, but tolerable.

    Are they say least charging less for the steaks and drinks, considering how far it is from any nightlife?

    You seem to be implying that Calgary has "nightlife".

    Ok, late evening life. Still, considering the location, they should be charging 20% less than downtown.

    Honestly, I have no idea.

    But I'd much rather go to the south location than downtown, so I guess that's relative?

    I've looked somewhat recently and the online menu is the same. It's LoL!
    It was when Tik-Tok made that brilliant remark about going to the second worst Superstore and buying a shitty Dodge.

    They have Kirkland brunello at the Taza Costco for anyone that’s looking for it. I grabbed a bottle, didn’t want to commit to a case like Buster haha.

    Alternating this and Heineken and I think I'm getting drunk tonight. I'm sure this wine was too cheap for you fuckers, but I think it's tasty.
