Breckenridge 08 is still up.
Perhaps the marathon is to see how long Breckenridge is on offer.

Have you had it before? My advice - open one soon, let it aerate and enjoy it no cooler than cellar temperature. Let the other ones sit for awhile - and enjoy over the next decade or so. Seriously . . .

Sorry, too late as they're on to the next offer. Haven't tried this wine, but in general World's End wines are often often highly rated by critics and often make their way to flash sites. I've purchased several over the years and have always been pleased I did so.

Just saw they have a 2015 Elyse zin for $19. I haven't had one in a while, but I really used to love their zins and they were a lot more expensive (which is the only reason I stopped buying). Going to grab some at this price.

My wife and I visited Elyse back in 2012 and enjoyed the wines but loved the winery name. So two and a half months ago we named our newborn daughter.....you guessed it Elyse. Their wines on Last Bottle are autobuys and have been for sometime. They pop up regularly, this appears to be a new offering "York Creek", so we are in.

It actually has a very big following in the UK, more so the SB, admittedly, but it's quite popular amongst the casual wine enthusiast crowd.

One of their "default" wines that they will leave up for days is a wine branded "Ned" from New Zealand. It shows up about once a month or so, I'm guessing when they don't have any other "deals" at the moment to load. It can change at a moment's notice so I'm sure it just changed in between the timing of the posts.

Karl - IIRC Sleeper is a label created by Last Bottle for wines that have been released by the producer without attribution. I got some bubbly (Brut) under that label from LB not too long ago and it was quite tasty for the price.

[Edit to add]

If you read the whole (hyperbolic as usual) blurb on the LB page, it says something like the above . . .

If you look on CT the last 3 vintages they released of "Sleeper Cab Reserve" all scored around 92 points. There is no guarantee the grapes are from the same source as previous years. The winemaker of the smaller contributor to the blend is a younger guy that worked under some big names and the source of those grapes is Diamond Mountain. It's a crapshoot and $59 isn't super cheap but it could be a good value if the grapes are good. I've tried a few "No Name" Cabs in the past with disappointing results but THIS COULD BE THE ONE!
