Is anyone having as much difficulty as I am in buying wines that are rated by WS? Is there an online source to buy that will have these wines?

I live in a pretty big city and travel to other large metropolitan areas but have a hard time finding "best buys" etc.

Best Buys usually go fast Try big distributors such as costco,bev mo, sam's club.Or do a search on wine or
Have you checked out the "Wine Retailers" section of this webiste? It lists stores for most places in North America and they usually have decent selections.
I usually find that has a good selection of wines that get good ratings. They currently have a number of 2000 bordeauxs in stock that made the top 100 list of 2003. They seem to have prices that go up as the ratings come out, but in general are pretty competitive. Just be careful when you buy that a delivery isn't made when it is real cold out and it freezes on your doorstep!

You'll just have to pay that small amount of retainer fee to find out. Wink
