Why did they have to make one of my favorite QPR's #2? Why? Something tells me there will be no more St. Cosme Gigondas under $30 anymore.
I have watched all of you old hats on this board get worked up before, but until now, I just chuckled....
Oh well WS, I still love you.
I don't think it will have an impact.
I didn't even look at the list. Was it the 2009 or 2010?
Just one more sip.
Only death is free, and even that costs you your life
Agree. Minimal, if any, impact on future releases, anyway.
FWIW, I just saw an offer for '09 Relentless at about the same price previous vintages had been selling before the '08 was ranked #1.
I bought a bottle of it in Walla Walla and brought it home. I believe it was $28.
Just one more sip.
Wine is like potato chips around me...if it's open, it's gone.

I don't think the WOTY has a long-term impact on pricing either, although most of the 2008s are off the market now. If it's still up, check out this nitwit on WineBid. Price is $160. Time to sell that $28 bottle.

It's kind of spotty. I did some quick checks on a couple top 10s from this year and didn't see the kind of spikes I used to see when I followed this stuff more closely.
That said, the 2006 WOTY (2001 Casanova di Neri Tenuta Nuova) has a current average WineSearcher bottle price of $219. I think official release price was $60, and many of us bought (and actually received) this wine from Premier Cru @ $40.

The 2005 CC Reserve is 80 to 120 on there. Not bad for a 20 dollar bottle of over rated juice. I knew I should have bought a whole case. Now if I could just figure out how to ship the stuff...
Good to hear. Now I feel a little better....
Up to $270 now.
Madness. The Utah ABC is showing bottles @ $60. gigabit, do they exist?
