Saw it 15 minutes after getting the email and it was already $22, so I passed. I had the cab that they offered and it was not great. The mourvedre was slightly better for my tastes but I’m not super eager to bite on a new offer without seeing others’ tasting notes.
Really enjoyed the Mourvèdre and also the Pinot, but with a minimum order of 12 this is a pass over $15. Wish he’d drop the dynamic pricing and just have a reasonable price (which can be seen in pictures on a couple offers)…
I just don’t get how that would be a beneficial pricing model - consumer psychology is constantly working against you because no buyer wants to be the one who buys above the average price.
Edit: and the algo isn’t actually dynamic pricing because it only goes up, rarely down. Don’t think he’d have all this left over inventory if he had a standard but competitive price.
Just grabbed a case. Can’t go wrong with Becheur or Terrien. Had about 4 different Chards (vineyards and vintages), Cab, Sauvignon Blanc, PN and really loved them all. Only one that was a bit lower on the scale was the Mourvedre (and that was cheaper). Great QPR, I find.
Was about $18.60 when I clicked which was about 10-15min after it was sent. I emailed Michael straight away and he said there were no pre-sales and in about 10min the price had risen to that level from the initial levels. Gotta be quick!
