Got the email too. Signed up maybe a year and a half ago. I'm on the fence. They probably should have left me rotting on the wait list a couple more years and i'll be more motivated. :D

Got the email as well. Signed up just a year ago, didn’t expect it to come so quick. What are the price points on the offerings. I love TRB wine and 18 was a good year.

I have been buying since since '05, prices have been stable at $225 and the wines are always great. Yes, its now owned by a large corporation, but with TRB still making the wines its still a buy for me. Once TRB leaves then I am gone as well.

One interesting thing I have noticed is wish listed orders are not filled as readily under the corporate owner than previously.

While prior subscribers declining the offer following Constellation's purchase is likely the main driver in people getting off the waitlist, it would appear Constellation is trying to spread the wealth around a bit more by not fulfilling wish lists which is hastening moves off a waitlist.

Just my $0.02.

First year off the wait list. Got the offer in the mail today for gorgeous 6 pack too, which is 1 x T6, 2 x CCS and 3 x RBS. Looks like they took advantage of Constellation To Kalon, maybe if I remain on the list long enough.

I had a huge allocation available at cost, not a single bite.

If anyone in NYC wants a couple bottles of RBS/CCS at cost, let me know. If no takers, I‘ll probably pass on my gorgeous six pack offer.

    “Gorgeous” pack offer too.
    Will the To Kalon(heritage, MB) G3, and LPV be offered later?

    First offer so not sure how Schrader works yet.

    No, Schrader does 1 allocation per year and they put your packs together. There is a release for longer standing allocation members in December and then a 2nd release for new allocation members in February. This is my 2nd year of receiving a February allocation. I've seen in previous posts that some people received allocations for 3 years in the 2nd wave before being moved to the December release.

    Last year my pack included 2017 CCS x2 RBS x2 and GIII x1.

    Will probably give the 6 pack a try. Anyone happens to be in Chicago and wants to share a bottle or 2, let me know.

    Had no idea Constellation owned Schrader now. While I understand the hate for any large conglomerate, my great grandfather started the company (then a small company called Canandaigua Wine Company), so I'm absolutely going to see about getting my new-to-the-party self moved up that allocation list!

    Hot off the press from Mrs. Lisa Perrotti-Brown in case anyone wanted a review of the 2018's prior to purchasing...
    2018 Mondavi Heritage Clone To Kalon Vineyard. This is the very first vintage of this new label for Schrader. True to Schrader form, the wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from a single block in the southern part of Mondavi’s section of To Kalon vineyard. The “Heritage Clone”, a.k.a. clone 39, is pretty much exclusive to Mondavi To Kalon, with the exception of some cuttings Robert Mondavi may have given out. Winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown noted that this clone produces very small bunches and tiny berries, equating to super-intense fruit. A barrel sample, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Mondavi Heritage Clone To Kalon Vineyard displays a very deep purple-black color, offering amazing intensity on the nose of blueberry coulis, warm cassis and blackberry pie scents with underlying hints of roses, fragrant soil, Darjeeling tea and tree bark. Medium-bodied, fantastically intense and very tightly wound, it has loads of mineral layers intertwined with fine-grained, firm tannins and bold freshness, finishing very long. Evocative, singular and truly exciting, I can’t wait to taste this from bottle! 572 cases are due to be made. 97 - 100 points
    The 2018 Monistary Block To Kalon got 97 - 100
    The 2018 Beckstoffer To Kalon got 97 - 100
    Rest are 95 -99 points
    Does anyone have the WA and/or JD reviews for the specific wines in the 2018 Gorgeous Pack: T6, CCS & RBS?

    Was granted my wish for one Old Sparky today. Totally forgot about that since I wished it back in December.

    Constellation Treasury Department called down and said "fill every order you can find!"
