In fact, after you get yours, can you shoot me an email at cnalda "at" steptoe.com or share with the board where it might be available? Could be a nice addition to the 2001 (twins' birth year) collection.
I have been keeping my eye out for this, but I'm sure that the retail stores will have to wait until the 2000 is gone, which will NEVER happen. Might be living vicariously through your tasting notes . Enjoy

A plush, rich, complex wine, with layers of currant, earth, pencil lead, light toasty oak and minerally flavors. Packs in lots of flavor and follows through with a concentrated aftertaste. Score range: 92-94
$100CAD for an ordinary wine like the 2000 Caymus Cab? That's outraegeous! Actually, that is the primary reason I no longer collect verticals. I pick, choose, and select, rather than just buy because I did the same thing last year!
I remember i purchased my first case of Caymus for $12.00. It was the 86 vintage and i bought the case through the restaurant I was working at the time. At $54 dollars a bottle it is 4.5x more money than 1988. Not bad, what will the cost be in another 15 years?
Wine prices have followed the stratospheric trajectory of concert tickets.
