2003 Bressia Profundo Mendoza on LB for $17. FS on 4.

Good review from Tanzer if your palate aligns with his. Also all positive reviews on CT. I would be willing to try one or two at that price, but not 4.

Two different full case options. Either a sampling of both red and white blends or a sampling of the varietally labeled wines. Something like $250/case.

Possibly interesting $19 2006 PN on LB from Sans Permis. They seem to be better known for their chards, but generally good numbers on everything. Absolutely no experience with them; others? Splitz?

2006 Sans Permis Pinot Noir Velours Paysage on Last Bottle. No cellar tracker notes. 2005 vintage has notes but is a Santa Rita central coast PN, not Sonoma Coast like this one.

Anyone had it and can provide tasting notes or anything?

Tastes like really sweet candy and had mouthfeel like Syrah was blended in. YMMV

Hmm. Interesting deal. Debating on if I should buy and if so, which one. Any suggestions?

I went in too. I bought the Sans p chard and it is amazing for the $12 I paid. If the Pinot is half as good as the chard this is a steal.

Should be fun to try

I'd go with the red blend/white case if you can choose just one (unless you just went in on his Woot offer since some of these are duplicated)

I'm thinking we had the 2005, this is, however, very interesting and I'd take one or two.

Since they only have ~7 cases, it should be interesting to see how long this lasts.

Earlier today I picked up a couple 2006 Col Solare Columbia Valledy Red Wine for $32.97/btl as a flyer. Anyone had this?

Also had a conversation with the Costco wine guy, the CH rep was there as well, and found out if there is an asterisk " * " on the info tag, it's a last-of-stock close out. Also, if the price ends in "7", it's a sale price, as most end in "9".

Another guest at a dinner party I attended had brought a bottle of this, although I do not recall the vintage. It was delicious. Where did you buy your's?

Summerwood offering from last week is back up on LB. I got 4 bottles. I can crack one open tomorrow night and give me opinion if you want, but obviously it may not still be up.

First impression is they didn't skimp on the bottle. It's made from very thick, heavy glass with wide shoulders and a very tall heel. I assume this means the wine was made for aging.

I had an 03 of their top bottling a year ago and it could have still used some time. It was, however, really nice.

I just got an email about the Booker spring shipment and have now instated a SIWBM. Not sure how much longer I can afford this.

anyone have any experience on the Cuatro Pasos Rosado Mencia 2009 currently up at lastbottle ($6, FS on 8)? It sounds interesting, but nothing on CT, and not really familiar with the region.

I was actually not tempted last time. My bar is set extremely high for reds right now and most of the cheapskate stuff won't do it.

Didn't buy a thing for almost a month then caved for 3 bottles from Halcon and 8 bottles of the orange wine we had been waiting for for so long.
