My allocation is 6 bottles. Since I have never had the wines I will probably buy one or two bottles to see what they are all about.

Would I get kicked off the list if I didn't buy now?

- Do you have to buy all (6)?

No, it looks like I can buy as little as one.

Those are up to $89 now, wow. I think it was in the 40s back when I was on the list.

Everything was cheaper in the 40s. I think it was because of the war.

I'd buy Broken Stones and Bone Rock from you if you could get it. Just let me know and I'll provide contact info. I was just notified that I'm still a year or two from being on the allocation list.

I was very surprised to have gotten the email 2 weeks ago. Pleasant surprise.

I am curious about your take on these wines. Based on past posts, I'm guessing these won't be your favorites.

I am sure that you can find takers of your allocation down here.

Oenolvr, leave your email so I can contact you.

Red Guy, I like a lot of Paso Robles wines. Smile

If you like Cali Syrah, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better deal, IMO.

Whine-Oh, that was evil. You know how much I hate crossing the $30 barrier. Razz

I was thinking the same thing but the 04 Broken Stones I had recently was excellent (although half the price of current release).

I have shared in another forumite's allocation for years, slowly watching the prices escalate. Now that I am on, i am not even taking my full lot due to cost. Eek

I appreciate the advice. Part of me wonders if I would just be happier loading up on some Hug Cellars. I do want to try a Saxum though.

I've never heard of this producer. Worth seeking out?

I think alot of people dropped off the list due to the price, hence the reason why so many people are now being offered wine. I think it is decent enough to purchase however I am watching the price in the coming months years...

I do have some single bottles from more recent vintages, next offline? Also, I am on Linne Calodo and Herman Story lists, if you ever wanna try them? I have some recent wines from them as well? (Might have to break into my offsite and find a Saxum to pop while in Napa) Wink
