"We apologize for this as this item is still back ordered from our supplier as they are also waiting for it. We have removed this item from the website as not in stock. Nothing is charged yet."
I bought that wine back in October of 2014, after the RPM tour. Or rather I tried to buy it, and they were out of stock, then, too. (It must have been a different vintage, though. The 2013 is still the current release at the winery.)
Finally in December of 2014, I received one bottle of 10 year Madeira that was also on the order. So they aren't outright crooked, but after single bottle shipping, it would have been cheaper to get it locally.
I called them to sort it out. They said there was some problem with their site and they couldn't remove it from the store. At least you got them to mark it as unavailable. (No - if I search their site for Bell, I can still add it to the shopping cart.)
I don't have Pro right now, but as I recall, all the bargain priced 2013 Clone 6 seemed to be different fronts for the same outfit - sometimes with varying prices.
I keep looking because I'd like to put together a Bell vertical some day.

You'll want to stand it up for at least a few weeks.
