Found '09 and '10 Beaucastel for $67 locally, so I'll be doing a split case of that in a week or two.

The folks at No Girls told me I was at the top of the wait list, so hopefully that comes through, and I'm gonna go after that Schrader "Perfect Pair" on Wednesday... a lot of wine for me this month...


you ever tell yer fiance that you want no girls in your life?


I rarely keep empties, but the one bottle I have prominently displayed on my bar is a bottle of No Girls Syrah Smile

Looking into the '03, '05 & '06 also. Should have info early next week. Let me know if you have any interest, and '04 also.

Found a 2004 Malescot St. Exupéry at a local for $43. After my pleasant experience with the '03, I grabbed it. Should have grabbed the other one left on the shelf. First entry in my 2013 good deal list.

I stop at $200 with this wine. It's worth every penny at that price, IMO, but that is my mental self-imposed 'cap' with this wine. If they're North of that (and I would suppose that they are once past '01, than there is no positive use poking my head in that bucket of temptation. But I thank you for offering to share. Smile

I sincerely have no doubts about that. I loved those that I did have. A superb wine.

w-s does show the '97 available at $245 and under $300 for '93, '96 and '99. I could be tempted to bite at some of those. Once you hit 2000 prices got silly, IMHO

1993 Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia

I'm really not a fan of this wine but I couldn't resist the 50% discount. I sure hope I appreciate the QPR on this one.

Interesting, I saw a '93 recently on sale for $120, but did not buy due to provenance concerns, and I do enjoy this Cabernet a great deal.

Good luck, I hope the bottle shows well.

The tasting notes on Cellartracker don't seem overly enthusiastic and the undercurrent suggests this wine is possibly showing its age. The bottle looks in excellent condition and I was assured it was held in temp-controlled storage, but who really knows. Ultimately, the $80 price closed the deal for me.

Drink up. I've had several over the years and I, personally, have found them on the decline.

Will likely pick up the bulk of my Carlisle allocation in the coming week. I can't believe spring mailers are already starting...
