I have 20 people with more than 2000 points. They are in good shape Smile That group will probably get a case offer again in the Fall.

They are also probably the only people who will get a Pinot Noir allocation next Spring.

Referral points would be a good idea, I'd have to add that to the sign ups.

The Pinot will be tough. I'll have about 40 cases available of the 2007 vintage. Not enough to go around. In 2008 we're going up to 250 cases though, so if you can't get the 2007, you will get the 2008.

I'll put a blog up with some pictures of the vineyard today, it's amazing.

Bummer! I have been excited about that one. I was keeping my fingers crossed that I would be in a position to get an allocation in '07 because I know you will do it right.

Paul,

Why don't you test Keeno and offer him an allocation of the 2007 pinot, but require him to purchase it in 15 days.... See if he is REALLY on the wagon. Wink

PS- good luck Keeno, its going to be a long summer...

Paul:

Thanks for that next three bottles of Hautee Tubee! I tell you folks, that is a very drinkable wine. Rhone is something I have been neglecting and am just starting to taste into. Is it just me, or does HT remind anyone else of a Rhone?

I laughed out loud when I read that. That would not be cool. You may have noticed earlier in the thread that I asked Paul when he planned to send the fall mailer. There was a reason for that. . .

Kenno,

If he goes forward with the offer - I'll buy it for you (so you don't break your oath) and we will split it when it is ready to drink. Wink

A very kind gesture. However, I can't help but wonder if that isn't bending the rules a little too much. A good idea though!
At any rate, I think I am a little too low on points to qualify. Paul will have to confirm, but there should be quite a few folks ahead of me on the list.

The Montreal/Michigan guys pool their orders and send me a note on who bought what so I can divide the points up. I'm fine with that and it saved them some shipping costs too.

Kenno, you're ranked #68 in points right now, in pretty good shape to get a first time Pinot allocation. It will probably just go out to the top 100.

So,Paul, are points equal to bottles bought or dollars spent?

2000 points == 2000 bottles ~~ 170 cases.

Those greedy people need to learn to share! =)

Dollars spent - shipping + discount. So if you bought a six pack at $200, you get 210 points.

You also get 100 points for each year on the list. Right now there are about 300 people who have more than 100 points.

This is hardly a science, I struggle with each release to figure out where to allocate wine too.

Paul, thanks for the info. Was just curious as to how these allocations work....for you and other wineries.

No problem - I'm only trying to help you out. It has NOTHING to do with the fact that I was late to the list and only got offered a 3 pack of the syrah this year and want to make sure I get my hands on both of the cabs (and would love to try the pinot as well). It was completely selfless. Big Grin

Paul - thanks for being transparent on how this works and good luck with trying to figure out allocations.

Okay then, according to my calculations, you have to sell me about 1.5k in Hautee Tubee now, so I can get my Pinot allocation...

So what else ya got left that I can snag up to get into that 2000 point category to get a case offer for the cab and guarantee a pinot allocation? Big Grin -mJ

Some of you already know from sending me emails, but late last week I swung a deal with my distributor in New York to make more of the 06 Syrah and 06 Haute Tubee available. He basically agreed to trade off a lesser allocation for this year to get a larger allocation of the 07 Syrah and the 08 Pinot Noir.

Send me an email if you're interested.

  • 2006 Stefania Syrah Eaglepoint Ranch - USA, California, North Coast, Mendocino County (7/12/2008)
    Excellent wine. Popped and poured. Nose was lacking at first (could have been me - slight congestion), after pouring two glasses- put the rest in a decanter. Let the glasses sit while we grilled steaks and veggies. When we came back to the wine, strong nose of blackberries and dark fruit. Smooth. Enjoyed it over the next hour and half. Nice finish - long enough to enjoy, but no so long or strong as to overwhelm the food. Still seemed slightly tight when we were finishing. Try again in 6 months to a year. additional upside if the tightness resolves itself. (92 pts.)

had my first bottle of this on Thursday night, did not disappoint... lovely nose, a very feminine Syrah, initial scents of mint & pine dominate over subtle floral notes, more subtle coffee, earth, tar, all shroud the fruit notes... on the palate the pine again takes forefront, but the mouth reveals layers and layers of expansive depth, dark chocolate, more earthiness & tar notes, some tobacco, and tasty dark fruits, finished nicely with excellent balance... medium bodied, deep & structured, but not heavy & thick. more then held its own with an 05' Almaviva. the best Stefania wine i've had to date. keep it up Paul Smile
