98's from JD for both the Syrah and Grenache. Am I from the future? Perhaps. Let’s think critically. Is it possible for this wine to be bad and sub 98? Highly doubtful. This is SQN. Critics needs SQN, they won’t dare bite the hand of Manfred and Elaine’s offspring. Did I get some? Yes. Am I a sheep?...

Looking for more small formats - bdx or otherwise. I'm interested in anything regardless of age (except no sauternes, please).

I've got a bunch of 'normal' sized bottles & plenty of vintage champagne for trade or there is always cash. I'm sure I can find something you'd like.

Re: Tricky situation with long term CC deal- what would you do?

Take receipt of the wines, continue to reach out. If unwilling to send from your address/cellar, just refund and relist them on CC. I'm sure someone would be interested. An unfortunate situation, but such is life when you conduct business. This isn't anything out of the ordinary.
