I got a magnum of MM single vineyard cab from LB. Took it to a dinner party with friends to discover it was a leaker...thought for sure it would be cooked, but it turned out to be excellent. I can't recall the vineyard, but I've not seen it on LB or Invino before, only the magnum version.

A few of the other MM wines I've tried were not so good. Their zin port is decent.

I have the page monitoring up on chrome, which helps a little bit. Now I'm trained to refresh every time I hear a chime.

Yes, the vinelog site is working well for me. Hit up 3 deals so far, looking like this might be an expensive day lol

No doubt!

Going to be ultra picky today on the marathon, I don't really "need" any more wine

If only I wasn't at work, I could really get to work with my two monitors I have in front of me...

Settling for multiple tabs in Chrome along with vinelog.

Its interesting that vinelog doesn't appear to include wine.woot deals. I checked back through about 7 pages of expired deals and didn't see anything.

I got the Candela Syrah for $6/bottle during the Mayan thing and thought it was a great deal. Tried to go in for more than one and got burned.

Grabbed a bottle of the 2007 Nun Vinya dels Taus. It's made from the grape, Xarel lo, which is one I have not tried.

I grabbed one of those too, not realizing until I ordered it that it's a white wine...hmmm, and at retail, a pricey one at that.

I've been finding it hard to read the colors of some of the wines, with that silly basketball image behind them.

I bought an Almagara in the Mayan thing and didn't know until I poured it that it was a white. The bottle was black.

For the $10 or so it was nice. A more full bodied white, similar to a Roussanne or Chard. Not a lot of taste, but a great body.

A couple of times I went through the promts, quickly I might add, and did not get the wine. This is ridiculous!

You have to be already clicking by the time you start reading the name. And then quick key to the end of the page to submit the second time. Crazy.
