Re: JB NEUFELD - WA CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Just had a 2015 cab the I bought last year during BD 10 and is my first time trying any of Justin's wine. Still quite young but dang it has potential. A bit of cranberry right now that I'm hoping will develop and can't wait to follow and buy more down the road.

So now that the price is pretty much full price (before the 50% off) will it stay there or could it go down later if no one buys for awhile? Still a ridiculous deal at 18, just wanted to make sure I understood the system.
