This was on the main board. Another Thompson Vineyard Syrah, to compare with Shirah. Note that in the nonkosher world, this wine is considered a "very good value" at $30. Shirah is about twice as much or so. I am not saying that they are overpriced. The market determines whether a wine is or is not overpriced. If they can sell all they have, I suppose it isn't. But it is instructive to see how much more the kosher market is willing to spend on wine than the nonkosher market. I found it interesting.
