K&L just reduced the 2007 Saffredi to $50. I kind of wish the LCBO had a "price match guarantee."

Fut, you crack me up. What's next on your crazy wish list - a functional website? Responsive customer service? Maybe a decent selection of back vintages?

LOL

d.) All of the above!

Razz

C'mon, my post was hilarious. As if the LCBO would ever have a price match guarantee. Even now that McGuinty has resigned. And no, I'm not trying to make this a political thread!

I'm going to start a thread called "Futronic for Premier".

Vote early! Vote often!

+1 Save me a seat on that campaign bus!

I assume by now everyone is aware that there is an unadvertised Vintages delist going on. It started on Oct 1 and got more seriously ramped up on the 15th.

My purchases have been:

1 x 2007 Paul Hobbs Cuvee Augustina Richard Dinner Chardonnay
1 x 2009 Peter Michael Chardonnay Ma Belle-Fille
1 x 2009 Peter Chardonnay La Carriere
2 x 2008 Philip Togni Cabernet Sauvignon (double markdown)
2 x 2006 Clarendon Hills Grenache Onkaparinga
2 x 2007 Saffredi
2 x 1994 Warre's VP

And, naturally, there is no mention of this sale on the Vintages web site!

How much for the Hobbs? What is the reduction?


Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

2007 Fall Line Winery Red Artz Vineyard
39% cabernet franc, 36% merlot, 25% cabernet sauvignon

Speaking of double markdowns, I thought this was good QPR at $30 after a price drop from $36. Now it's $25.

Damn, I bought it at 36, then a couple at 30 just as the price came down. I wonder if the lcBO does price adjustments, at the very least.

At my local LCBO today, the 2007 Larrivet Haut Brion Blanc was marked down from $55 to $38.

This sale is a very rare and welcome deal in many cases, especially for California wines, which is even more rare and welcome that for many others. I've bought several that are selling for nearly or sometimes less than the US average on Winesearcher, for example:

-l'Avion
-Reininger Ash Hollow syrah
-Ravenswood Belloni zin
-Parable shiraz
-Testament shiraz
-Onkaparinga grenache

And even ports!

+1 on the Ash Hollow. A really good American syrah.

Tried the Ash Hollow last night. Great northern Rhone-ish nose of iodine, black olives and game meat. But the Rhone comparison ends there, IMO, as I found the Ash Hollow heavier and more viscous than most N. Rhones I've tried. All in all though, great QPR at $28. I will let the other bottles I have sleep for a few years as I'd like to see how this might develop.

How was the acid profile? I can deal with viscosity, as long as there is complimentary acidity.

AML, if you're looking for a wine to pair with food, this probably isn't the best choice. This wine is food.

Edit: Upon reflection, that comment wasn't fair. It would go fantastically well with grilled dead cow or smoky BBQ ribs.

I'm not sure about the incinerated cow, but smoked ribs or grilled horsemeat should pair well with this wine.

Steak tartare (horse or cow) might work as well.

Picked up some Drouhin (Oregon) Arthur Chardonnay 2008 for $14 each at the Major Mac/Weston LCBO. Price seems too good to be true. Am I missing something?
