Four bottles syrah and two bottles grenache in OWC. Ships in fall 2013. $2200 includes tax and ground shipping.

Will also consider selling single bottles at $425 each. Each of the two previous vintages of these estate wines are currently listed from $449-$800+ per bottle.

Well at least you're not bashful about trying to profit by it. Kudos to you.

WIML, I wish I could keep it, but I'm trying to pay off surgery bills right now and don't ever want to skip a SQN allocation. At least I'm selling it for less than what any retail shop will charge.

Don't feel the need to justify it. You're upfront about charging a premium, which is more than fair for SQN. I think WIML was being sincere, not snark.

I wish I had the cash available, I would've made an offer on these.

$2200 for 6 bottles of Syrah and Grenache, is stuff really that much better than other stuff like Saxum, Alban, Denner, Booker to justify these prices ?

If I'm not mistaken, isn't wine primarily about 'taste'? Some people (myself included) may be inclined to pay more for something they appreciate. In my experience (albeit limited with SQN), the B20 I had was tremendous.

If you're asking "is SQN 5 times better than Alban?" it's impossible to answer.

It's entirely subjective.

You're also dealing in a luxury hobby here; does a Rolex tell time better than a Seiko?

With that being said, the extended age SQN's (which these are), are exceptional wines, and tend to "wow" pretty much everyone except for w+a.

I'm yet to drink one where the general consensus is anything but "that was amazing, and one of the best wines I've ever had". Now, "would you pay $400 for it?" is an entirely different question that has little to do with how good or bad the wine is.

As fate would have it, I just received my postcard from SQN stating I missed this year's allocation...

Lordy, lordy, I must introduce/expose you to more wine palates. Razz Wink

Chapoutier LaLa, Masetto, Tua Rita, Jaboulet La Capelle, Palacios l'Ermita, La Mordoree, La Sizeranne, Chante Alouette Blanc, l'Oree, Le Meal, Les Granits, Unico et al. trump SQN wines the vast majority of the time and without exception. Wink Big Grin

Never get too caught up in the flavor of the month club.

You and I will be drinking wines in April that may shed some light on said opinion. Winner

G, looking forward to drinking wine with you again soon, but I just do not enjoy drinking modern and traditional styled wines at the same tasting. I find neither show well overall.

Let's pick one style and enjoy.

Who cares what the reason is, he doesn't have to answer to any of us. A very fair price based on the market.

It's been a pretty long month for SQN, no? Razz Big Grin

Having had two major surgeries in the past two years, I can empathize with jj007.

Have you met my wife? I really did piss her off about my wine purchases this year. Winbid.com and vinfolio.com revenue has exploded since I received my last raise. To top that, now I'm on the SQN list now. She's a little ticked but I told her no more winebid.com. Just purely SQN and some others at vinfolio
