What are the various package options? Looks like I was allocated a 6 pack consisting of a Schrader, T6, CCS, LPV and two RBS. Are there 3 packs, Old Sparky, etc?

They are only offering 6 packs from based what I was offered this morning. I was also able to secure an Old Sparky. No options that I see for smaller allocations.

Tom...What was your six pack called? I was allocated the "Cellar" pack consisting of one of each wine (only one RBS, but also one GIII). Based on other posts (here and elsewhere), I believe there was a "Dandy" pack consisting of six wines, but two of certain ones (I don't remember which) and no Schrader or GIII.

Took 2 Cellar Pack and 2 Sparky and wish listed 2 Wish Pack.

This has to be by far the largest offering from Schrader.

To bad there no tn's available.

They are still in barrel, so TN's are tough. I think Parker put barrel scores out?, but I am not a subscriber over there anymore. That said, I've tried the barrels and they are very good.

Does anyone know if this offer is coming out in waves? I have been offered and purchased the last three years, but none yet.

Ordered all that I was offered. Once again I would like to thank the Schraders for holding the line on pricing. Shipping cost not so much [wow.gif]

+1. I was totally expecting a price increase especially with '12 being such a highly lauded vintage.

Got the offer and ordered 1 Dandy Pack. Never had a Schrader before and took the plunge out of curiosity, vintage and WB board enthusiasm. Hopefully they turn out great (fingers-crossed).

Have you been on the list for several years and just not ordered before? You didn't get a "first wave" offer on the first-time you made the list did you? By the way, what is in a Dandy Pack?

I have been on the list before and passed on a previous offer. Also I do not know if I was on the first wave but my allocation was starting 12/3. Add for the dandy, someone above posted the contents of the pack already.

They have offered me 2 bottles of the RBS since the 2009 vintage. This is the first year that I was offered the "Dandy" pack - 1 CCS, 2 LPV, 2 RBS, 1 T6. I also wish listed for the 6 pack.

Me too, but it was one ToKalon plus one RBS in 2009 (cleanup offer by phone), two RBS in 2010 and one RBS plus one LPV in 2011. Was hoping to move up in the pecking order this year - oh well...

Looks like I FINALLY made it off the waiting list and on to the buying list. Anyone have any ideas as to what I can expect for my first allocation? I won't know until Jan 21 when the allocation is open to me. As it's my first go round, not sure what to expect.

Probably singles I would surmise.

It used to be a 2 pk or 3 pk but there was more wine in '12 so you should have money on hand for the 6 pk just in case.

I've received a 2 or 3 bottle pack the past three years, but didn't receive a notice today. Perhaps it was just to those that are getting added to the list? I am hoping for more than just a 2 or 3 pack due to the larger vintage, but wouldn't be surprised if it's still just 3.

I too have bought 2 packs the last 2 releases. I did contact the winery- and when the emails come out, its first come first serve.

Strange, I've purchased a 3 pack in 09, and a 2 pack in 10 and 11, and I bought some schwag for the Schrader charity release and I only just got the offer for the Jan 21st yesterday. Not sure if I'm on the lowest rung of the second wave or something? Seems like some guys got offered from the first wave on their first offering?

Brandon, I don't think so. I got the email yesterday and I've been offered two-packs the past two years. Actually was offered a three pack three years ago but it sold out before I logged on.

Newbies didn't get the prior offer. It looks like they had one year on me - 3 yrs of buying. Now, curious if we get offered a six lack or Old Sparky, or something smaller.
