Thanks for checking. I held out long enough to let it "sell out" though I wish I had gone in.

New LB offer: 2007 Col Solare Red Wine (Bordeaux blend) for $39@. Went to a dinner party and one of the guests brought a bottle of this. 91.2 on CT for 59 tasting notes. Agree that it has dark fruits, is full bodied and very smooth.

I've had this at a tasting in the past month. Agreed that it's a good wine, but $39 is what my local wine shop is charging. This is not a deal.

Tallulah Stagecoach Syrah is the one wine I've been waiting to buy from them Awesome Syrah btw.

+1. It seems like you only need to email them and ask. I've just done that, but I'm sure I won't get anywhere with it in time to get any of that Syrah.

They also have a handy little Platinum app that takes you right to the buy page so you can make quick buys that gets SWMBO all riled up

Not really. You just have to send them an email and ask to be added to the Platinum notification list. I did that yesterday, and got a fairly prompt reply saying I'd been added, but no notifications yet.

I believe after they add you all you have to do is sign in and you will see a (check platinum campaign) link at the top right of your screen.

Still waiting to see that link, and wondering if they've sold out the Tallulah. If so, I have plenty of wine to drown my sorrows.

Per WTSO:
Platinum is a secondary campaign (low inventory wine) offered to some of our more elite members (anyone who inquires about it).

For a member to access Platinum, they would need to log into their account and look for the blue star located in the upper right corner of the home page. Below this star is a link informing them if the Platinum Campaign is open or closed. To access “click the link”, the Main Campaign should then change to the Platinum offering (You can click the link again to return to the regular campaign).

We do not send any email offerings for each new item that is offered on Platinum. You are required to monitor the site for each new wine or take advantage of our Platinum Twitter feed.

Platinum is open seven days a week, start time is 1pm eastern and will continue until sold out. We added you to this list, there are never any obligations to order so feel free to enjoy reading about some of our greatest wines!!

EDIT (additional comment): have to agree with the others. Like I really need another site/offer to tempt me.

I've got to say WTSO has great customer service.

Also, platinum site now has a very tempting Michel-Schlumberger Estate Chardonnay for $12.99

They do have great customer service, and that Chard is very tempting, especially since I know that it was made by the winemaker who was there before the Fall 2011 sale of the winery.

Seriously. I don't even read his drivel, but I've had a few of their favorites, and I don't feel like I'm taking too much of a chance. A number of Burgess Cellars offers have been fabulous QPR, for example.

Anybody have experience with ordering from Los Angeles Wine Co? I'm finding a few wines I want at very good prices there, but their website is frustrating.

Not sure if there are any Barolo fans out there, but WTSO has a Michele Chiarlo Barolo Tortoniano 2005 for $23.99 with Free Shipping. At this price, with shipping and no tax, you can try an almost 8 year old barolo.

Try signing off and back on. BTW, everyone, WTSO Platinum has a policy prohibiting posting their offers on public forums such as this one. They threaten to kick you out of Platinum if you don't abide by this.

Same for me. I was logged in, and could purchase, but no blue star. Logged out & in, bingo; star is back.

So, confirming this is not the riserva.
