Re: WineAccess Thread - Wines, Tasting Notes, Deals, etc.

I know this thread is all red wine discussion, but I wanted to give a plug for their white wine as well. I bought some Massican Annia and Brokenwood Semilion, both highly rated and great white wines, for about 30% off with different discounts and Amex offer. Add in free shipping and these prices are...

Re: What de Négoce wine are you drinking tonight?

Opened a #23 Chardonnay last night and it was great! This won’t last long in our house, I would consider buying more if I see it on the site again. I know I shouldn’t have, but curiosity got the best of me and I opened my first bottle of #37 Viognier this week as well. What a mess that wine is, I kn...

Another positive vote for #63 Riesling. Tasting great two days after delivery. This case won’t last long, just like #16 Sauv Blanc.

Re: What de Négoce wine are you drinking tonight?

On the Tablas Creek website they describe using 3 different grapes in the final blend. My guess is that #55 is excess juice of one of 3 varietals or a blend in much different percentages. de Negoce N.55 2019 Paso Robles Rose : 76% Grenache, 19% Mourvedre, 5% Counoise. 13.2% alc.

Re: de Negoce offer

I get the feeling that UPS forced Cameron to start shipping soon. Based on the email it looks like UPS wasn’t ready or willing to ship thousands of cases in one shot. This is better than having the wine sit in a UPS warehouse for who knows how long before they could get it on a truck.

Re: de Negoce offer

I think the first couple Washington wines will be the next great deals. Until those are released, I will hold off on buying. I’m 9 cases in and that’s enough until the Washington wines. I think we will see a $180 for $15 or something close with those first Washington offers.

I had the wine access deal through my Marriott Amex, someone else said it was through their Hilton Amex. I have two different Amex cards with different offers on both cards, although some offers overlap including the wine access. No idea how Amex decides which offers to designate to each card.

I bought 32, I like the description of soft tannins and drinkability right away, plus I’m cheap and like the $12 price point. Not as concerned about the source as a lot of people here, but I think this will be a great wine for me.

Got the offer through AMEX for $50 off $150 and purchased a couple Massican Annia magnums and a bottle of Stay Home cab.

I’ve never had Massican wine, but based on the recent California whites thread I’ve been reading it sounds like this was a good choice.
