For those who live near wine library or who have a free shipping code from earlier this year, there is what looks to be an excellent value wine up on cinderellawine right now. $6.49 for a Spanish Grenache rated 92RP, 89 IWC and 87 CT (which is swayed by price)

6 bottles shipped, under $40. Gotta be decent for Tuesday night.

Looks like a good grab, cmaldoon. Thanks for the heads up.

I had seen it this morning and dismissed it then I thought more and researched. Cheap tasty Grenache is hard to come by.

That's good news. I've been waiting to see what the shipping rate to SoCal will be before ordering anything more ever again. Glad to know where the ceiling is

I have been ordering from them still this year. He offers so many interesting wines and I'm still learning, so it's been hard not to get sucked in. He mentioned that they finally got something more reasonable worked out for shipping a while back. As you said, it's not great but better than before. The few magnums I have coming were less reasonable ($17-20) so I won't be doing that again.

Looking forward to getting my cases shipped in early December. I need to stop buying and start drinking, though, or I'll be out of room again.

Cheap Barbera up on LastBottleWines $5/each, free shipping on 12. CT ratings are low 80s.

Looks like it was also up at $60/case at Shopper's Vineyard. They have a youtube tasting video for it:

I figured that at the price it was worth a shot. The CT info is pretty worthless, IMHO. The video was helpful, though it was also part of a sales effort. It certainly appears as though someone imported this, it hasn't been selling, and now they're clearing it out.

Couldn't find my notes. Just a receipt showing we bought a bottle of the 09 CS (retail $45, tour price $36). So, if we tried both, we must have liked the 09 better.

I got an email last week from them with the invoice. Then got another, and another. 8 emails later I'm trying to figure out where I'm going to put it all. The price to DFW was between $26-29, much better than the shipping cost back in the Spring. 2 of the cases were from their warehouse case sale.

This seemed like a fantastic deal, but I just picked up about 5 cases of wine from my UPS box today from all of my Last Bottle and Invino summer orders. I had to restrain myself from going in on the Panza.

Let us know how it is.

I added my voucher to my Lot18 account in the same manner as before and credit get applied as before. I have only 1 so I can't validate the stacking. However, what's different is that after applying the voucher, I'm taken to a splash page for LS members, so they obviously know that the voucher code was from LS.

You have until the end of Feb to use it so why spend it now? Sometimes Lot 18 has free shipping days, which it posts on its facebook page. Otherwise you have to buy 6 bottles to get the free shipping.

EDIT: also you will find that they randomly put a credit in your account. I've only gotten $10, but others here have indicated they've gotten more.

I think you have until the end of February to move it into yout Lot 18 acct. Once claimed, mine show a November 20, 2017 expiration date. Surely Lot 18 will have something I want in the next 5 years.

Do they still have free shipping days? I haven't seen one in forever. I still follow them on FB, but have actually been tempted to unlike them due to the lack of deals and selection. I'm finding WTSO much more compelling.

But a voucher or two will keep me engaged...

Sounds a steal just like their PS for $15 at Trader Joe's earlier in the year. Likely a big
Napa cabn but well made of the type.

Kunde 05 reserve cab for $20 was good a while back and I'm holding some until it's out of dumb period. 07 likely better. Drink now or hold for 5. Their ordinary cab is, well, ordinary, but this is decent if not mind Boeing

I keep looking at this deal on Last Bottle and need someone to get me off the fence either way.
Parusso Barbera d'Alba Superiore 2003, @$17/bottle. Flavor components look good: The estate’s 2003 Barbera d’Alba Superiore is an excellent wine from this superb Barbera vintage. Full-bodied and deeply expressive, it offers captivating layers of ripe fruit, chocolate, spices and licorice sensations with outstanding persistence on the palate and plenty of style. BUT, this is leading me to hold back: Anticipated maturity: 2007-2011. Any thoughts???
