I have not seen it at Seattle area shops recently. I think the last place I saw it was at Pete's in Bellevue. Wino and I tasted the Cab and the Merlot at the winery and I thought both were very approachable -- some vintages of Quliceda are very closed down on release....
RedMeat: I was able to find one bottle of the 99 QC cab at one of my secret shops. They are charging $72.99 for the bottle. Your cost would be $72.99 + tax + shipping (unless you are coming up or know someone that is coming up for the PacNW wine party). Let me know if you want it and I'll pick it up tomorrow.
I am very happy to have gotten two cases plus two magnums from the mailing list. However, my house sitters while Mrs. Eno and I were at the 6/15 dinner asked if they could have a couple of bottles of wine to drink. Of course I said no problem. I pointed them to some very nice Cotes du Rhone. When I got home I realized I was missing a bottle of '99 QC. I asked if they had taken one and they said that they took one of those instead since I had so many. They did not want to take a wine that I only had six bottles of. Oiy-vay. I asked if they liked it. They said it was okay. Then depression set in.
Eno, I don't really know what to say. I would have rather been house sitting for you tonight than drinking my own NZ SB . They used some messed up logic. That is why I'm the only one with a key to my wine locker.
Bman, Sure it needs time. But I was surprised at how well it drank being such a young and undecanted one. Imagine what it would have been like had it had a couple of hours of air. The next time I house sit in Charlotte, I'll open a magnum and provide very detailed tasting notes.

Just saw an ad (I'm watching the World Cup as I post) promoting our Skins Game for next week. It was always later in the summer, I thought. I'd planned to send you a hyper link for it, in case you could have squeezed in a visit on the company nickel, but appears the chance has been missed.
I drank a bottle of the 99 tonight. This is a very nice wine. Decanted for 1 hour. I need to get this wine out of my house and to my storage locker before it's all gone. My neighbour and I liked this wine more than the 99 Chappelet and 97 Paradigmn we drank along side of it. I think I am very partial to Washington wines though.
From everything you all are saying and the one pitiful glass I've tried this is killer wine. I've moved my two bottles to the back of the cellar so I won't be tempted to try. This is very hard to find down here in Texas.
