It is the ‘regular’. The spring offer is the EBA and the white.

Got my offer while on the golf course and managed to work my phone through the process. Made double on that hole but it was worth it!

Interesting - from the wording on the email offer, it doesn't appear to be a guaranteed allocation this time around.

I was wondering if it was always structured that way. I have a tendency to be at work when releases hit and have missed many due to, ''its an allocation but not" type offer.
If itis typically a guaranteed allocation, why was it different now?

Typically it was guaranteed, I think last years was the first like this. When I logged on today my allocation was only 3 Grenache and I’ve been buying 6 for at least 10 years. Not sure if that’s production, or they are selling out?

Yes never once passed on anything red, always 6+6.

A couple of years ago I asked if I could pass for one time on a white offer. They said sure no problem, then came back with next years offer cut to 3 from 6. I never asked about going back to 6 as 3 is fine for my white consumption really.

I sent Amber an email to see what the reason may be...

Appreciate the generous offer Dennis, let’s see what Amber says. I’m thinking it has to be a glitch unless the first come, first crack at wine with new additions is changing things around there?

Yeah I only noticed a Markus comment like this on this thread. Is this the only wine on the first page that you have no interest in? Or did you just choose to let everybody know here for some odd reason?

Been on the list for 10 years. Only wished for more whites a few times. Started being offered 2 eba boxes about 7 yrs ago. And magnums of the Spring release, but I don't always take the magnums. They often hint that the wine could be gone if you wait too long, but it's never happened to me.

Marketing 101. Make it appear you might miss out unless you act now. I'd only imagine if they offered you a certain amount within the allocation period, they wouldn't renege once you made the purchase.

9-10 years. I came in at 9 years almost to the day last year. I seen some posts from a couple of people who have been waiting for 10 years, so I think the dividing line is somewhere in there.

They won’t renege once you make the purchase but if you wait until the last day your allocation may no longer be there. She said there is no worry in early in the window, but possible to lose out late. Not sure why they would go this route and still bring new people on, just have a tiered offering imo.

Received an email back and they said Grenache production was down so it was “normal” to be offered less. Haven’t heard from many here with dropping allocations though...makes me think they just don’t like me after 11 years [cry.gif]

Bought everything. 9 + 9 + 2 (mags). Just to repeat what I have often said, if anyone wants some of my allocation at cost, I am glad to share but request the following:

1 - You do not resell
2 - You are in OC (no shipping)
3 - You do the same for someone else

Would it matter?

I believe Lisa P-B has declared herself the official SQN reviewer now. June 28th issue:

"In May, we took the opportunity to road trip south to Ventura to visit a trio of pretty exciting wineries that are based off the beaten trail toward Los Angeles. By we, I mean our other California reviewer—Erin Brooks—and I. For those who don’t know, Erin has been doing the heavy lifting when it comes to California reviews this year, covering well over a thousand wines from Sonoma down to Santa Barbara. I still cover Napa, parts of Sonoma and a bit of California Central Coast, including the wineries based around Ventura, not least of all: Sine Qua Non. This said, it was my view that Erin must also taste SQN’s wines even though she will not be reporting on them. It is incredibly important for her to understand this California benchmark as well as see the other wines she reviews in context."
Cheers,

Per this thread and the other one out there, their customer service is truly awesome.

I was traveling when I saw the e-mail offering and this thread. I went to their website and clicked through my usual 6+6 offer. I got home a week later and found Manfred's usual essay in the mail. There was the usual allocation page plus an additional page offering a magnum set. Totally missed it on the website. Of course, you can only order once so I thought that was it. This is the first upgrade I've gotten on the Spring release since I've been on the list. So, I e-mailed them to explain my error hoping not to be penalized for not taking everything and they just added the mag set to my order. A budget buster for sure, but so worth it.
