Looking at the picture a little more closely, would make me guess, winebid.com.


I love that website. The shipping tends to be killer, though.

I fail. Nice haul. I'm really getting back into PN after a couple years being turned off.

I love RRV PN. Can't wait until I'm accepted onto the Rochioli list.

I feel I'm in the minority, but I like the Iron Horse still wines (esp their PN) better than their bubblies.

The bubblies are great, but the still wines are amazing. Especially the Block Q Pinot Noir from a few years ago. Too bad it was $80/bottle.

I'm familiar with Domaine Carneros Pinot; good stuff! Not familiar with the others but would be interested in getting familiar with them

I've picked up some nice Pinot's from Last Bottle, but these were winebid buys. Shipping is a bit high, but they do allow pick-up

That Thomas Road PN we had at Iron Horse was amazing, especially considering how young it was, but it was cost prohibitive at $85/bottle and no discount. I'd love to see it come up on a flash site!

It was awesome! As were the lamb sliders.

I bought a bottle of it that somehow never made it home...Not quite sure where it ended up.

I had to give up on Winebid due to the fact that it required a trip to Napa to pick it up since they won't ship to Texas. I do miss it though.

Did you get a good deal on those Williams Selyems? That's good juice.

Monica, old of the Scott Harvey wine club, now has a shipping company. Might want to contact her for forward shipments.

She still at SH? Or is the new venture separate? Winebid shipping and the 15% fee kills what often seem like good buys for me.

Sadly no, she's been replaced by Isabel Singleton.
You can find Monica HERE doing a shipping service. I would imagine she would welcome hearing from any wooters.
