Re: 2018 Schrader

“Gorgeous” pack offer too. Will the To Kalon(heritage, MB) G3, and LPV be offered later? First offer so not sure how Schrader works yet. No, Schrader does 1 allocation per year and they put your packs together. There is a release for longer standing allocation members in December and then a 2nd rel...

Re: A few photos from recent Sonoma / Napa wine trip

Re: TN: 2017 Dehlinger Chardonnay Garbro Ranch - I took one for the team

Todd, thank you for the note. I received my order today and was wondering what these wines were going to be like. There aren't many bottles pending on CT so there probably won't be many reviews. I appreciate you enjoying 1 now and sharing your experience!

Re: Upright or on its side: A Theory

I assume this theory of upright bottles not adversely affecting a cork or the wine would also hold true for angled display shelves/racks. I've always been concerned about displaying a bottle that requires significant aging because of the lack of moisture on the cork but when I researched this topic ...

Re: Napa Cab under $100

I also concur with Bevan Ontageny ($95) and they drink well young. Over the past several months, I've drank the 2014, 2015 and 2016 and all are a delicious bourdeaux blend that drink very well with a decant. It is my personal favorite wine under $100. I recently joined the Rivers Marie allocation li...

Re: 2004 krug buy more st 209.99 ?

Thanks for the guidance. I think I'll hedge my bets and buy a few more of the Dom 2008 and Krug 2004 but lean a bit heavier on the Krug since it's a great deal for that bottle and I can probably find the Dom at a decent price point closer to years end. I appreciate everyone's comments!

Re: How long were you on the Monte Bello waiting list?

I signed up for the futures in January of 2017. My first vintage was the 2016 Monte Bello, which I received this past spring. Unfortunately, the cutoff point for the 2018 futures was December of 2016. Everyone on the list prior to 2017 were granted their future allocation for 2018. I missed it by 1 ...
