And I thought Dave Butner was bad! Larry Schaffer's Tercero Wines

Often the most expensive day for a Wine Berserker, whereby the deals from wineries and retailers fill the forum and make your credit cards scream for mercy...

Hey Larry, will you be sending out tracking info when you ship these?

Good show. Tercero wines get better and better. The contents do a disappearing act once opened!

Mike,

I certainly will! I was able to get the local orders shipped out this week - all orders outside of CA should go next week but I will be in touch to confirm. I'll give all the option of shipping temp control - if you choose this, the shipment will be delayed a bit but will still get their shortly . . .

Cheers!

Wanted to update those waiting on wines that an email was sent out today letting you know I was ready and raring to move forward shipping the wines, but wanted confirmation before heading them out the door - and also offering a temp control option at no additional charge . . .

Cheers!

Made the decision to send pretty much everything I could via temperature controlled trucks - not worth the 'risk' - except for those west of the Rockies, And yes, Mr. Carey, got your email and am holding off for now (-:

Larry-

We cracked the '08 Cuvee Christie over the weekend, my first Tercero. No formal note but loved it! If that's an indicator of what you're doing at Tercero, I'm in! flirtysmile

Thanks for the BD offering.

Pete,

Thanks for the kind words! I dig that wine - especially the aromatics. To me, and I say this not be be impressive or anything, aromatically, that wine brings me back to 'older world' CdP's . . . Curious to hear your thoughts as well.

The other reds in that sampler - the Cuvee Loco and The Climb, will both be a bit 'bigger' in structure . . .

Cheers!

Yes the aromatics are surely memorable but I don't have much experience with older CdP's so can't comment on that comparison. Grenache Blanc teed up for this weekend.

I sound like a cheerleader but we've had a Grenache blanc, The Climb and a Cuvee Christie from our case and I can't think of a better wine for the price point. Larry, you definitely won a repeat customer.
