Another very nice email telling me I'm still not worthy. Oh well, maybe some day.

Dear Wine Lover~

Before all else, we want to thank you for your continued patience. We appreciate your ongoing interest and completely understand that the wait can be long and tiring. Please know that we are doing our best to offer you wine just as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, we are not able to offer you any of the wines from our upcoming release of the wonderful 2013 vintage. However, to keep you in the know, the wines to be released next spring are: our 2013 Syrah ♂ and 2013 Grenache ♀.

So true. Probably going on 5, maybe 6 years now? I really have no idea when I did and to be quite honest have really gotten over them despite really liking the unique style. Too much wine I can AFFORD and also BUY out there to get too hung up on them. Some day I guess...

Hope you guys also used a separate password for your SQN login.

They store their password in clear text and even print it out in the email as well...

I'm fairly certain that there are a number of WB's with sign-up dates after 2005 that have been added to the list.

It is possibly autumn 06 but I'm pretty sure Oct/Nov 05 is right.

At one point, they did a survey of the waiting list asking how many bottles you would like to purchase. I put the max and got on shortly after. I don't recall when that was or if they ever did it again.

I have no idea when I signed up, but it was forever ago. The big question is when I do make the list, am I even going to want to buy?

Based on these dates, I should be enjoying my first shipment of SQN sometime in the mid-to-late '20s.

What a fantastic and fortunate business model - full allocations and a MASSIVE waiting list for over 10 years

I bet if you factor in the probable increase in folks joining the wait list each year over the last 10 years that wait list is even more dramatic...

I'm surprised to hear that people are still waiting after 10 years. I am pretty sure my wait was ~8, and I just got added to the list last year (just bought my 3d offer)

I know what the aftermarket prices are like, does someone mind sharing the release price ballpark? I wonder how much these prices have gone up over some of these 6-7 year waits?

Last three years offering was $160 per plus tax and shipping for the grenache and syrah. The most recent estate (extended barrel age) spring offerings are most recently around $1400 per six pack IIRC.

I don't have easy access to any years prior to that

Yet would the list be as big today if they had followed in line with some of the big cults and jacked the prices up to $4-500 per bottle.

I seem to recall over the last 3 releases, people stating sign ups early to mid to late 2006. I'm late 2007, so I'm looking forward to someone saying they've broke the 2007 barrier.

I joined the waiting list on 12/01/2006 and received my first offer this past Spring so I had a 9+ year wait.

On the other board, someone who signed up in September 2006 just received his first offer... (I'm May 2007, so a few more releases to go -- hopefully)

Probably not. I assume a lot of people would have dropped off including me.

Shipping is $11 per to the east coast, so with NYS sales tax, I'm paying $184.68 each.
