What is there to think about here?  Those prices for '15 DRC sound too good to be true.

Well, storage conditions would be a concern as a consumer.  Who knows where it was stored and what temps they have been exposed to when power goes out.   But if you just plan to flip it, then it's a no brainer for sure and just past the risk to the next person.  

Definitely a concern if this is a private party transaction.  I'd hope the "distributor" would have proper storage and chain of custody measures in place for a tropical island that relies heavily on tourism.

The wines arrived on the island just recently, well after the storm.  The reason for the inflated supply of DRC wines is that tourism is just starting to get back on its feet and there hasn't been as much demand as usual.  So provenance is as good as 'normal' for this place.  The distributor has a refrigerated warehouse, although who really knows what happens to the shipping containers on the way to the warehouse.  But I have been buying wines here for many years and never had a problem.
