Ditto. It was fun in Feb after D&D, wasn't it?

What is bottle size of Concannon PS Port? Looks like 375, and price would be consistent. But I could not find reference on line.

PS Chocolate Sauce and PS Port look like an order for me.

Thanks. Oh, and 50% off is on shipping, not the wine.

Should be 375ml for Choc, 500ml for Port.


I thought the 50% off was too good for everything. But not bad for shipping!


Edit: They redid the page ... and the 50% off Shipping is more prominent. Maybe because it indicated 50% off on more than shipping?

Just checked my stash. My port bottles are 500mL and the chocolate is 375.

Thanks for looking. That showed up when I went through to check shipping. They ship seperate by size. So even at half off, the shipping on mixed sizes was way too much. About $25-30 for two bottles on either size. So over $20 shipping if I mix bottles.

I am most likely headed out there this weekend to pick up my fall shipment. I can get you a couple, but don't know when/how we would Wootleg.

Sparky - is you concannon shipped or do you pick up during D&D weekend?

I normally have it shipped directly to my locker, but will probably try to pick up my Spring shipment that Monday after D&D.


Edit: And worst case, I could probably take it back to him (or to ddeuddeg/bahwm) in August. Assuming I'm done washing my hair.

I bet you can ship them to PB cheaper than $20.

Just scanning quickly. Work has been taking up too much of my time! Damn assessments. But, I felt a ringing in my ears. . . "take it back to him (or to ddeuddeg/bahwm) in August". Planning a trip out here are we?

Concannon PS Choc Sauce & Ports ordered. Wine Club membership FTW!!!


Sadly, Spring shipment isn't until April or so, so I'll just have to settle for my normal case-buying spree there in February after D&D.


Edit: Once I get the locker organized, I will have to hold a PS Port tasting.

How long will this last? Also I will be going out of Ithaca in about 3 weeks so I would either need to hold my shipment or get it before then.

Yeah... this week sucks. And I can't buy anything, although I did buy the balsamic. SWMBO was pissed!

What a sucky day for our state. The attack at the community college was about 3 hrs north of us, but I know a lot of people who live in Casper.

I will drink no wine before it's time. What time is it, anyway?

If you like El Jefe's wines, absolutely. I love the Mourvedre based wines and the Tempranillo and Spaniard. The Grenache isn't a slouch either.
