Ken, Sometimes it helps for you to make a post in the Buying and Selling section of this forum and say that you are looking for those wines. Some of the members here have the specific wines you are seeking and are willing to sell them to you for a fair price. Make sure to post an email address they can contact you at.

You are about 8 month late to the party. These two bottling were released last year, followed by huge score from WS in November/December.
The day the score were release via WS Weekly/Insider the Syrah inventory was basically wiped out from retail shelves within couple of hours. Alec's Blend with 1,000 cases made probably lasted a hour longer, if that.
Winesearcher.com is showing no inventory in United States. As Bella Donna mentioned, your best bet now may be a fellow forumite, also try secondary market such as winebid.com. Good luck on your search.
pyang, just curious, you know what those wines are going for at auction? I opened on 02 Syrah Friday night and our dinner guest wanted to buy some. I told them I thought it would be $100-$120 at auction.

Haven't seen much of either lately, probably not as high as $120, more like in the $90 - $110 range.
