$240 apiece for a bunch of Hors? Must be high class...

Cheers,

Both of the Hors P & C are beyond my means. Cayuse and No Girls are a stretch, but I grabbed the brass ring the last time around. newhere

Order placed. Two bottle limit. I assume since this project is small, only the one syrah will be produced?

Why even sign up? The essence of cookie licking. "I dont want the cookie, but I'm gonna lick it so no one else can take it either"

Just found this thread. I'm a long time Cayuse buyer and I think they represent a great value for what they deliver. Don't need to spend $240 to get high 90's scores. Don't even need to go the extra $$ for Horsepower. I bet BF holds its own. Lots of comparisons to SQN.
I think SQN is in a class by itself - no one comes close. Is the same true for Hors Categorie? If this was Napa cab no one would think twice about $240/btl.

As much as I like Cayuse, I am pretty much over spending $200 plus for a bottle of wine. That includes SQN (dropped off list a while back) and everything else. There is a ton of great interesting wine for less. These just end up being trophies vs something I simply enjoy.

YMMV
