It is Tuesday and when the doors of Costco flew (okay, they were probably slowly cranked opened by a grumpy employee) open, we were there.
Well, technically, not at the exact moment, but we got there soon enough.
Once inside, it was, as always...you can go your own way.
When you only need a few items, what is the best thing to do at Costco?
Personally, I linger around in the wine department. Because, why not, right?
Of course, if you linger and act too weird I suppose they could call security on you, but I like to take chances.
First, I grabbed two very inexpensive bottles of Prosecco, because, why not, right?
Let me interject a tidbit that has been mentioned in prior posts in various sections on this website.
The Dabbler likes to shop solo. Like Lobo...I need no one...I walk alone...in wine sections.
Let me say, I was not totally Lobo-strolling on this random Tuesday, so things clicked along at a rapid pace.
My Costco partner (to be fair, I was the invited guest), is a speed-shopper. I am not, yet we continue to torture each other inside retail outlets with semi-regularity.
Without blinking (who had time?) I grabbed one bottle of Trapiche. This is an inexpensive Argentine Malbec, and I have not had this varietal in a few months, and for $8.59 a bottle, why not? Right?
See, I am even writing this fast. You are panting, aren't you?
Oh, the Malbec?
The description claims it is colored purple with plum, black cherry and black pepper. Also, soft and spicy.
That last one sounds odd. Is spicy soft? I don't think so.
The Dabbler will dabble in this, but I am skeptical about the quality. It is worrisome that the first thing on the description mentions that it is purple. I mean, isn't it always sort of that color?
If you have had Trapiche, let me hear from you -- you could save me some time and trouble and I could pass this bottle on to some soft and spicy Malbec lover.
I am ...the Dabbler
