Yes! Of course. Thank you.
I remember we saw you walking up the drive, on the other side of the road, as we made disparaging remarks.

[edit] and for this I get a Sparky?

Actually it was more of a bar and four or five stools with equipment all around, but it qualifies just the same.
We went there, purchased, just don't recall who it was.



Sorry, not enough coffee at that point. I was parsing it into separate sections.

As in, Speaking of SH / new item ... not as the winery we went to across the street from SH. Doh!!

As CAGrl said, David Fulton Winery, where they have 100 year old PS vines. And Jana wine too!

Fortunately for my WBM, I've been in the air or behind the steering wheel almost all day today, and I'll be in a dinner meeting most of this evening. So no damage to my cc today on any fronts.

Yup, but at the same time, how much wine can a person really buy? I'm happy to be tempted far less than I used to be.

2014: 42 bottles. Last wine.woot: 2012 Iron Horse Estate Chardonnay
2013: 66 bottles, 2012: 91 bottles, 2011: 92 bottles, 2010: 74 bottles, 2009: 30 bottles, 2008: 3 bottles My CT

With the "recession" over, I think most reputable labels have moved a great deal of inventory. They're possibly adjusting their production or wary of how much capacity they can reliably store. Less of a need to discount presently.

Also, consider a winery's inventory like a mortgage portfolio, in 2005 they were probably saying, "the more we keep in our library, the more we'll be able to charge down the line [ie, beat costs of storage/inflation/interest]." My guess is that the hit they took will encourage many to hold their juice for even shorter periods of time. YMMV, Just mho.
