Kent Rasmussen Carneros Pinot Noir 2007

This wine was delicious. About $20 at Costco. Elegant and not over the top (IE this didn't taste like Syrah), with fully resolved red fruits, little bits of spice, vanilla and orange rind. I am definitely getting another bottle of this while they have it.  

This wine was not delicious. In fact, it sucked. $7 at Trader Joes. Don't buy it unless you're a masochist.

Amen on the TJ pinot. Grabbed a bottle on recommendation of other sites and learned my lesson: You get what you pay for. In this case, flat soda pop. Ugh.

Yeah, I think most of the TJ's offerings are very hit or miss. They always seem to have one or two wines that are really great values and then a bunch of crap that is really bad.
