Anyone tried Whip Saw Rye? Looks like a winemaker collab gone Rye. Picked up a bottle at $40, but after checking online pricing (~$50-$55), I’m thinking it might be a fire sale, given WA state’s usual price gouging.
Where did you buy it? I'd pick up a bottle to try.

This was one of the best 2015 white burgs I've had so far (not a huge sample size). The nose is redolent of lemon chantilly cream with a good smack of matchstick. The palate is full and dense with more lemon citrus and bracing acidity. The finish is long and satisfying. This is a tremendous bargain,...

I don't know the answer to the question, because there isn't really one, but I drank a 2017 Walter Scott Pinot Noir Combe Verte over the past 2 nights and it was a great $25 bottle. And then I bought a bunch of 2017 Walter Scott svds for way more than that. Not a coincidence.
