Don Melchor 2009 for $38? Seems like a great deal 2009? Weird! I wonder what the provenance is though - looks like 2017 is the current release. Also not sure if it's really my style these days either, but a heck of a deal if there's nothing wrong with it regardless. I bought 5, hard to pass up that...

Provenance to kalon for $43 a bottle?

Is this worth a shot?
Provenance To Kalon certainly isn’t a very good example of To Kalon but not a huge risk at $43 a bottle.

Thanks, I took a flyer.

Same. Hidden ridge sold, prob lots of inventory sitting with wrong label. Pricing, winemaker, and location add up.

Questions is whether it’s the reserve or regular or a mix of the 2.

If it’s the reserve it’s a good deal.
