The website is not showing these wines as marked down. I just checked the following: Beaurenard, Batasiolo Boscareto, Yalumba Signature (website shows 2003, FYI). Guess it must be local PCs' whims, but even then I thought they were restricted to 15% reductions, max?
The in-store Vintages PCs are allowed to go to -30%. There are some conditions, but any store that really wants to can meet or get around these conditions. And they can go to -20% with almost no conditions at all.
That said, I am finding that more and more stores are cutting back on the discount levels. Don't know why, unless they like having old inventory hanging around. The Laird St store has had 3 375s of 03 Maculan Acininobili sittintg on the sales shelf marked down from $79 to $63 for months now. They may still be there when they knock the store down...
