Email correspondence I had with SQN in March indicated that people that signed up 9 years ago were now getting on the list [cheers.gif]

"Dear Berg,

Thank you for the note. The most recent customers that we were able to pick up joined the waiting list about nine years ago. We have little movement on the list and the wines are sold around the world. Please hang in there with us as we are doing our best to move availability forward a bit. Thank you once again.

Kind Regards, Elaine Krankl"

SE was a 6 year wait from '06-'12.

I would just get on as many as I could. Then you could taste the wines and post about them!

You could just buy good wine and enjoy it, but who wants to do that.

I got my first Alban offer about 3 years ago and I think I waited at least a couple of years for that offer. It was only 2 bottles.

This is rather interesting. Most of the lists above were zero or less than a year in 2005 or 2006 when I signed up for Cayuse, Saxum, Carlisle, Quilceda Creek, Kosta Browne and Aubert, but SQN was 6-7 years then. Perhaps more interesting, I think Harlan may have been longer then than it is now. I think I waited at last 3 years to get an offer at $350 after signing up in 2003 and turned that down because the price was silly by the time they offered it to me.

Jay, I think you're right on Harlan...I essentially walked on that list a couple years ago...maybe year wait. And of course never bought any!

I walked onto Schrader back in 05, not sure how long wait is there now.

When I signed up for Bedrock 5 years ago, he still had inventory on his website. I was able to buy right away. I think within a year or so he went to the allocation model.

Bedrock, Carlisle, Reynvaan, and Turley were less than a year for me. Sandlands and Becklyn were immediate.

Reading how long people wait on these lists makes me think two ways, 1. Sign up and wait or 2. Pass and source what I can, where I can. My LWS carries Cayuse, not sure which bottles he has access to though.

I think Harlan is more of a revolving door. Each year many people get priced out. Im a new replacement and wont be buying. I have had one Harlan and while it was good i can buy just as good at $150-200.

My advice to the newbies - sign up for everything with a long waiting list. By the time you get an offer, maybe you will know whether you like the wine. DO NOT sign up for every list where there is currently no wait. You will feel like a heavy hitter and buy too much wine too fast. Been there, done that.

HA! Nice one. Joe, I am noodling on opening up an '11 Syrah tomorrow. So little of it left around anymore, I have to use it sparingly. Steve is building forward and Thomas is behind the wines. At some stage, when the fuse gets lit, and at the pricing Steve has the wines, it will take off and become one of those sought lists. At least with Steve, you get a guy who is both a buyer and owner, so he knows both sides of the coin and thinks people first. Super guy.

Alan, there is a lot of great wine out there, enough of it that you could avoid the wait list drama IMO. I guess easy for me to say as I do love my Carlisle but I have been buying from Mike for over 10 years. This is the only list I would pursue if starting now as a new wine buyer, however, there is enough of it being dripped through places like Winebid that you could drink Mike's wines pretty successfully while you waited to be added to the new release allocations.
My best wines for 2020:
2014 Marie Courtin Champagne Efflorescence Extra Brut
2012 Minière F & R Champagne Influence Brut
2008 Rhys Skyline PN SCM
2015 Ulysse Collin Champagne Les Pierrières
2014 Laherte Frères Champagne BdB EB Les Grands Crayeres

such solid advice...by the time I made Screagle and SQN lists (7-8 year waits I think, offer came 2-3 years ago) I realized I either no longer liked the style (SQN) or had found what I believed to be better value high end Napa cab alternatives (Screagle)...passed on both

I guess I could have bought and resold for a profit but wasn't interested in that game

Even though I'm on the wait list for several wines, my tastes have changed since I first put my name on the lists so now I'm not really all that interested in buying them. I also have limited storage space so, when the latest Turley list came out, I had no space to put them and already have a good supply of their wines, I declined to buy anything. I know it you don't buy after 2 offers they take you off the list.

I am at 8yrs 1 month waiting on SE and 7yrs 8 months waiting on SQN. I think signing up for the longer wait lists is a good call then decide later but only those ones. I too made the mistake of signing up for some of the "bigger" names with no wait then bought too much wine too early.

I can't say what things are now, other than Under the Wire bubbly, I haven't attempted to add another list in a long time, but those seem about right. I think the only one I'm still waiting on is SQN, but by now I would buy the whites and let others buy the reds/stickies.

When don't live in or near a major city, direct purchases are a great way to have access to unique wines, but I got to the point that I am cutting back on list purchases to buy more stuff locally. I've taken advantage of buying off other people's list when possible. There's always a risk that this access will dry up for one reason or another, but more than worth it for me.

Received an email this year for SQN saying I would be added to the list, if still interested, for the next release. Had signed up about 8 years ago. I also received an offer for Saxum this year and signed up about 6 years ago.

I’m passing on both. Based on tasting notes, just don’t think it’s in my wheelhouse and not willing to spend the tariff to verify.

Thanks Tom. I too got a Saxum offer this year after signing up in late 2012 for both Saxum and SQN. I received an email from SQN saying to be patient but no glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. My tastes are very different now as well (though I did take some Saxum to give it a try)

Funny enough, I’ve found cracking the world of Burgundy much easier.
