No guarantee they will do the transfer. Notwithstanding the above, my understanding is that it is still at the whim of the PC at the store with the stock. Crazy

Any other, NON government monopoly, retailer, and they make it a policy of shipping from other stores even if there is only 1 in stock
Store markdowns at Dundas W and Bloor W (Roncesvalles) location:
2009 Elderton Command down to $58.50 - 7 bottles available
Le Serre Nuove Dell'Ornellaia down to $48ish (can't remember) - 1 bottle available
Screaming eagle 2011 cab is only $2050 - but for 5 days only for this "special" offer.
Only about a 25% mark-up compared to the US with taxes in at this price.
Please note, tongue firmly in cheek.

According to winesearcher.com, this is the average price, and only a very few retailers offer it for much less! But I'm still not buying unless one of my weekend lottery tickets is a big winner! Winner

Funny how the LCBO tends to mainly get the poorer vintages of these "cults". I guess the wineries need to dump the wine somewhere, and the Board seems willing (for us) to pay the price. Devilish

It's even better than that...

Last Thursday, Vintages announced another bin end sale. If you checked online at Vintages Shop-on-Line web site, you found the pickings were pretty slim. There were a very small number of decent wines, but their prices had gone up in the bin end sale (e.g. Moss Wood Cab was on sale for $139 vs the regular LCBO price of $119). That’s a mighty strange way of conducting a sale, but who am I to question the ways of the KGBO? ... perhaps it's just their way of implementing price innovation.

I went back a day or two later out of curiosity and found that someone with some basic arithmetic skills must have woken up at head office because the prices had now been reduced on those sale wines. I’m still not questioning the ways of the KGBO, but I did order a couple of wines.

As I said, the pickings were slim indeed and the prices only good in an Ontario context.
Anyone tasted the 2010 Paul Jaboulet Aîné Domaine de Terre Ferme Châteauneuf-du-Pape, if so is $53.75 a 'reasonable' price?
Walked into the Laird St store tonight to pick up my Spottswoode and found a lot of wines had been price-reduced. Some are from off-vintages, but the price makes it more palatable. e.g. 2011 Paul Jaboulet Domaine de Terre Ferme CdP @36, 2010 Guiraud Sauternes @$31.

A lot of those are likely in-store knockdowns. The Guiraud is still popping up at $40 online.

Yes, it's the PCs in the store trying to get rid of inventory buildup.
Don't recall if I posted this earlier but the Burlington store at Appleby and New Streets almost always has decent juice marked down. Got several bottles of Clarendon Hills Onkaparinga Grenache for $49. Winesearcher shows the average price as USD$75.

And Celeste and Terry are two of the best PCs ever!

I saw this one as an online special as well. Was highly considering it. Seems like its on quite a discount. Close to or less than American prices at this point.

Looks interesting...but my experience with grenache is I either love it or hate it depending on the vintage and blend, and don't have enough experience to know either way. Might be nice to test one out though!

I haven't tried the Domaine de Terre Ferme, but I have enjoyed other wines from Jaboulet, so I bought one on that basis.
