There sure seems to have been A LOT of Moon Mountain offered on this sell off.

I wasn't interested in more Moon Mountain, but I did just grab the 3L of MM 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon.

$59 w free shipping was too hard to pass up. Plus it will be my first 3L

I haven't been impressed at all with Moon Mountain thus far, I still have a dozen bottles of the stuff from the invino MM fire sale....not sure why they didn't make better wine, I mean Mt Veeder fruit should be killer stuff, especially for the MSRP a lot of it had.

Yea 3L of plonk at any price is still not a good deal

Well, the CT reviews are pretty decent for that vintage, so I've got my fingers crossed.

The wines are starting to repeat now. And we thought they were sold out.

i really liked the moon mount 07 merlot and the 03 syrah was pretty good too for $10.

Another 3L Moon Mountain up. Who knows, could be a great deal.

Dang missed that Vice Versa Syrah, if the Erna Schein was $10 less I'd all over that.

There should be a 15 minute limit on each offer. If it does not sell out, move on to the next one. They're losing customers who lose interest, are bored...It's not like they couldn't put the wine up again later.

I snagged one. If we ever have a south bay gathering I could bring it. Have you had it before? I was taking a flyer based on CT reviews.

$45 for a wine that may/may not be prime sounds iffy. If I was going to spend that much dough, I'd wait it out for something more worth while. BTW-I do like Italian wines.

EDIT: found it interesting that this wine scored well on CT for many years.

Haven't had it, but the many reviews suggest it'll be excellent if you like BIG wines.

So are you guys just hitting F5 or apple-R to refresh every few minutes? Do you have a reliable page checker extension that pops up a notification if a page changes?

I just stumbled onto this. And I have to leave for dinner in a few minutes. I think my ignorance saved me some dough.
