Re: The Garagiste Thread (The Great Enabler) Back to Life

$189 Napa cab turned out to be 2016 Spotswoode, and the Barolo mystery is 2014 Domenico Clerico (normale)

Re: The Garagiste Thread (The Great Enabler) Back to Life

I bit on the Barolo the first time around, and actually stopped by the shop today, but did not pick it up/ask to look at it 😅

I can report, however, that the Newtella is quite amazing.

Pretty good deal on the La Chapelle, too bad I already have a few of the 2016...
Was only a few $ under WS Pro. But yes, still reasonably good, just not "back up the truck" good :)
Ah, you're right, seems to be a lot more of these than I last looked.

S. Seattle back to 2009 Dom, at a much higher $145 than the old $128, and Cristal along with 2016 Pontet Canet $150, Canon Gaffeliere $90, Clerc Milon $60, and Haut Bailly $115 and 2008 La Grande Dame for $108.
Cristal at $150? Is that a markdown?

Weekend mystery Tuscan... Maybe a Cerbaiona Rosso?
If it's a Rosso, then it's the 2017. What makes you guess Cerbaiona?
I figured it's a Rosso based on the wording so was looking for something in that price range from a name they've offered before, was really just a wild guess though.
