Thanks pal. The 14' is the one i'm hoping for. Might just buy it online as it seems to be harder than I anticipated to obtain.

ISO: 2014 Detert Cabernet Sauvignon

Looking for a couple bottles of 2014 Detert Cab Sauv.

Had some of this as a course pairing at The French Laundry a few weeks back and would like a couple bottles at the wife's request.

Update (for those who care)- the second wave shipments which were sent out Monday and are starting to be delivered with additional foam inserts under and on top of the OWC to protect them from movement thus keeping them in tact. Looks like the problem is fixed.

As has mine (for years). They must be using new wood or cheaper products as this is being reported by many people I know. Bottle has some damage and whether I want the wood or not, they charge a ton for shipping so I expect things to come in perfect shape.

My two OWCs came completely broken. Wood fell apart and some bottle damage. I've spoken to several friends who had similar experiences today. The wood seems cheaper this year and the packing is sub par.
