IIRC last time they kept hauling away the bottles, so you kind of had an idea when it would end....but then again, last time they had a few...ah hem....technical difficulties

I don't see the bottles leaving this go.

Anyone that got in on the Château Nairac Barsac will want to check this out, looks like a lovely French desert wine:

True, but considering all the rest of the vintages have similar notes, and they all look to be great, I think we did OK. It'll be fun to try.

PS - I've had great luck with French wines from LB....I hope that streak continues I'd love to get another nicely aged Burgundy from them.

Half bottle of Lafite Rothschild for $799? I guess this might be the sale ender.

That sucks. Did they send you a cancellation email or did they just vanish from your orders list on their website?

The last time LB had a blowout sale, three of the bottles I ordered they didn't have, and one order of four bottles only shipped with one. They were good about crediting my $ back, and also kicked in a bunch of free bottles....so I cannot really complain, although the bottles that they oversold all turned out to be the really good ones I was looking forward to.

I have extra bottles of the Summerland late Harvest Viognier. You can take back a bottle or two next week. Wait - didn't you share last year that you had a a million people over for Thanksgiving?! I don't think 2 375 ml bottles will be enough, but it's a start!

Looks like the show is over, and we're left with what else, more Moon Mt....actually a 2001 Reserve Cab is tempting....but thus far MM has been disappointing (for me).

Since I was going to post it anyway, I just have a couple of flyers purchased so far:

Accornero Brigantino Casorzo 2007
Karthauserhof Eitelsbacher Karthauserhofberg Riesling Spatlese 2004
Candela Syrah Castelero Vineyard 2006

Total of $8 out my pocket for 3 bottles shipped, plus I still have $20 in credits! Bring on some good stuff.

Cheapie Tallulah 2007 Oregon Syrah up on WTSO for 13.99 each. I'm a fan of Tallulah's Napa stuff, but I've never tried their Oregon wines. I think this has been on Woot prior for more though.
