CT values just under $130 total. And the Spaniard was the only one that duped anything I had.
I'm finding I tend to like older bottles, so I'm hoping they're holding up.

Is TO a fixed price club? What was your pricing on that? I might need a wootleg...

You are coming up for D&D right? It will be nice to meet you.

I wouldn't worry much about the age. I have really enjoyed older bottles of El Jefe's tempranillo, grenache, and PS.

I think it was both of the last two years that he had his PS's lined up for about 5 years back at D&D. They age well.

I wrapped mine up and put it under the tree as a gift to the both of us. I have no idea what's in there. I went for the mixed reds and whites. But looking at the list above I have high hopes.

Planning on D&D, but likely will know more after talking with Sparky this evening at Klezman's.

TO ships to CA, and as mentioned, this is an unknown mixed lot for $99 delivered.

So I just tried to get the mystery bags from twisted, but I was told that you have to be a member.

The story is that you can sign up and then just hold the shipments (i.e. not really be a member), but I would prefer not to.

Did anyone else have the same issue?

Nope. You can buy as a non-member. Just continue as guest or whatever it is. I'm not a member of single wine club...I've already got too much wine.

My first try I couldn't get it to work. I would add "one" to my cart, but it always showed up as "zero". When I tried to update my order by changing it to one, it still came back "zero".

After closing the browser and coming back an hour later it worked fine. I pointed a friend to the page, and he also put in an order. Neither of us are members.

So the advice is give is to try, try again.

Ok. Thanks. I have checked back a few times but it still isn't working. Glad to know I wasn't the only one having issues. To be honest I don't need more wine, but aged TO at a great price is hard to pass up.

It worked for me yesterday. It was doing the zero quantity SKU thing over and over (0 in cart). Finally it just worked. Pretty sure it's a website issue, not sold out.

Really, you had to point that one out? My wife absolutely loves that port (I think it is pretty delicious as well).

Is there, by chance, any sort of invino shipping code floating around?

Well, I never got a call back from April. And I just got a chance to call back again and was told (not by April) that they sold out at 10 am yesterday. Interesting, since people here seem to have been able to get more orders after that. Oh well. They should take the page down or something at least.

Yeah that is why I was confused, because it seems like people got some orders through after the supposed sold out.

I was hoping for something a little more "library", especially with the PS. I already have 5 bottles of the 2007 PS and a couple of the grenache, so that is a bit of a bummer. Still a solid deal.
