Re: Best deal/coupon for on-line wine shopping.

FYI ... I've been 2 for 2 in getting Retailmenot cashback but it's been a pain in the a**. Most recently, I used it on Valentine's Day when they had 15% cashback. I've had to send them an email at the 45 day mark that I didn't get credited (that's their policy). They responded within a day and gave ...

Re: Select: Kelley Fox Wines * *BD11 Offering**

Very happy to report that Dustin @ the winery is making it right by sending replacement bottles. Just flubbed our shipment. Said to keep the 2018s, lay them down for a few months and enjoy with friends and family. :) Can't express my gratitude enough. The 2017 Hyland was one of the highlights from m...

Re: Select: Kelley Fox Wines * *BD11 Offering**

Weird. Just realized that the Hyland pack I got as part of BD11 is a 2018 vintage, not 2017: https://i.ibb.co/cyb3JpH/IMG-6545.jpg Anyone else? 2018 vintage isn't even listed on their website or on CT. Did you contact the winery?? Yes, winery has been contacted. Just wanted to let the board know in...

Re: US 25% tariff on European wines; 100% "digital" tariff on French products called off for the moment

In regards to prearrivals, has anyone (consumer side) personally had to pay any tariffs retroactively? I see some sites (such as winecellerage) are charging it upfront and others have a disclaimer saying you’ll be responsible for it when the wine actually hit US docks. I know the retailers/importers...

Re: Anyone buy from The Wine Cellarage?

Waiting for a 12-pack OWC of 2005 Cos. Purchased 2 months ago. Anxiously waiting but I have faith. Talked to Lars a couple times and he seems like a standup guy. Last I spoke to him, he was trying to get a big shipment together for overseas transit (boat) and mine was to be included. Was worried abo...

Re: Chateau Palmer 2016 for $274, what the what?

Don't forget RetailMeNot (basically an ebates-like shopping portal) for an extra 20% off. They don't seem very good at crediting purchases though. My purchase from December never registered even though I was sure to turn off any pop-up blockers and make my purchase through their portal. Had to submi...

Re: Psa hdh

When did they start charging tax to CA? And why? I ordered back in 2016 and wasn’t charged tax. Bummer.

Re: William and Mary 2017 Save the Date

Does anyone know how to get a hold of Will? He emailed me about a month ago (before the fires) saying he could sell me a bottle each of the 2016 Cab and Prop. I emailed him back but haven’t heard back. I called his number but his mailbox is full. Hoping he’s just busy with the harvest or 2017 shipme...

Went back and got a 2005 Leoville Las Cases @ $329. Amazing Bordeaux with some age on it already.

Re: Somewhat wine related... recommendations for a good truffle slicer

Hey there JF, I have the one listed above and a simple stainless steel one. Just get a simple one that’s “made in Italy”. The one above is made in China and even though it has a wooden handle, the simple one feels nicer in my hands, sharper and more adjustable. Shin will bring em by next week. ;) Yo...
