Re: TN: 2016 Bartolo Mascarello Barolo

Is Rare Wine Co. the distributor for the whole country?

I would think it is the retailer. I’ve paid the same retail, within $10, over the last 5 years. In Portland, you can find a $200 difference just based on the retailer.

Interesting. I always hoped that when the Pinot was off that he would harvest his Nebbiolo for a wine. Something must have been way off.

I have never had Bedrock. Saying that, I have left all of my mailers. The only one I wish I still had is Carlisle. If I could have kept it and maintained Syrah and petite sirah allocations without Zinfandel, i would have probably done it. I miss those wines.

Why is it that some boxes smell corked? I get that it can be a cardboard smell. But sometimes wood boxes smell that way too. I know it can’t transfer because it isn’t in contact with the wine.
