LastBottleWines.com (Last Bottle Wines) Deal Discussion Thread

In for a few of the '12 Wenzlau pinot. I've not had it, but Justin Willett was (not sure if he still is?) the winemaker, and I'm a big fan of his Tyler wines, so this seems like a pretty good deal.

2013 Horsepower allocation up for grabs

You log in and ship direct to yourself. I'm allocated the below two wines, and I really don't care about receiving the grenache in the future, but would like to continue to get the Tribe syrah, so that is the only one I will "require" you to purchase.

I have had several mid to late 90's Mt Eden pinots over the last year or two, and knocked down the last one a few nights ago. One thing that was consistent over all the bottles, was how they all improved, usually significantly, with a couple hours of air. It is often discussed how the "newer" CA pro...
