I was allocated 2 last year, therefore I was excited to get 3 X 3 allocated this time around; It's going to be difficult keeping my hands off of them when they arrive. It's amazing to find a true reserve cab of this caliber from Napa that doesn't cost 200 plus. All I can say is it is greatly appreciated. [thankyou.gif]

Has anyone had a chance to try the 2013's up at the winery?

It is open. You just need to go to the last e-mail they sent, and at the top of their web site, click on your e-mail address. Allocations show up.

Oh you boys, you boys...Yes Vinespring e-commerce opens early. I will tell you that as wine runs out the allocations might reduce to 2 of each. The demand has been staggering already. Amber, Mike and I continue to be shocked and humbled. This spring we will have another big announcement on a new vineyard where we have acquired fruit. Until then

Matthew, I was surprised that you didn't send out an e-mail announcing you were open. But I'm glad to get the allocation.

The email is coming out later this morning, a few of my little nuggets figured out the Vinespring system, it lets you in after midnight.

I missed the last offering (too late on the draw), and there is no allocation available for me just yet. Hopefully there will be some left over.

Order in with wishlist. I have been on this before the hype as Matt is a friend of my sister in law (and a fellow Longhorn). Hoping to meet up when we head out early in 2016. Still haven't cracked one open yet but living vicariously through the folks on the board making the early sacrifice.

I'd be interested to learn if the allocation does eventually drop to 2 x 2 because they start selling out quickly?

Haven't had it lately but based on the new oak it should be doing fine about now. In the '14 the extra year on the barrels drops the oak profile a touch and makes it more refreshing.

So far so good. We made it with 50/50 new French Oak/Steel Tank to provide some depth and allow it to age for a few years. There are a few folks that are holding, but for the most part everyone seems to have drank theirs. It's odd because that wine has become more rare than the cab on some level. In looking at share growth in Napa Valley sb is having a tremendous year.

We wouldn't change after actual order confirmations, it would happen in process as the day progresses for folks that hadn't taken their wine.

Bummer....
I wrote Matthew last year that I was going to bought it at ACME wines because I was flying that week to Napa and was easier to pick there instead of driving to Sonoma where the pick ups were. It seems I was taken out of the list. I hope I can get some through ACME as I will be this week in Napa again.

I was torn with this one but decided to go all in for the 9 bottles, a little bit of a leap of faith but seeing as 13 is viewed so highly it doesnt seem like a risk
