Got both the 2011 and 2012 V Madrone, so I’ll let y’all know how they stack up!
Now...if only LB will read my request NOT to ship til it cools off cuz it’s like 100 for the next week or more here.

I don’t love these marathons as I just don’t have the time... This one was different as I was able to score a few bottles. I guess I was lucky this time around.

I do hope the V Madrone is good as I got the 2012. Either they had a bunch or it was not selling well as it was up often and right up until the end.
Cheers,

@. Re-go

A shout out to the frozen ice pack for $4 (I think) offered by Last Bottle in my Xavier delivery yesterday. I thought about not getting it since delivery from their East Coast site on Monday usually lands at my place on Tuesday. Temps hit the 80's yesterday and the UPS truck driver decided my office wasn't open based on seeing no cars in front (car was in back). So the wine sat in his hot truck yesterday all day and I was able to get wine last night at very warm facility after hours. Got box home late last night and wine was cool to touch and ice pack still cold. Quite cold. I think it could have gone another day. I'll be getting the ice pack in the summer months for sure...

There is no option during the marathons. “marathon shipping” is the only option and you have to move fast or lose the bottle. I’ve done 4+marathons and never have they shipped without reaching out first.

Fortunately, they do cold chain shipping to a hub, but it will likely spend a few days in the heat.

For marathon they just emailed asking whether we wanted shipping now, with the default response being to hold

This is how it usually works! I emailed them to see what’s up.

Wow that Altesino 2013 Brunello went fast. Glad I saw the email when it came out, was in for 6. Think that was up for less than an hour!

I'm dreading the day when my marathon arrives. I went a little crazy. Afraid I'm going tohave to move a bunch of stuff around in my offsite storage unit to get it all in there!
