That Quinta do Crasto was released last March and $4 less. What are the chances this is a printing error and this should be the 2017 vintage?

Anyone get their March orders yet? I haven’t even received the “final receipt” that indicates they are shipping the items...  been 2 weeks today we paid for the orders. I could have ordered from zyn.ca 4xs over again by now. Useless communist organization(lcbo)

Patience is a virtue, especially when it comes to wine. You're just going to stick these in the cellar for years anyway (aren't you???), so there's no rush.

Someone I know who owns a wine shop just off Il Campo in Siena told me about a Russian fellow who came to his store and bought 3 bottles of Messorio (and paid in cash).  That done, he asked for a corkscrew and two plastic glasses.  He then went out and sat down on the ground in Il Campo with his friend and they proceeded to drink the wine that had just been purchased.  It was the middle of July and the temperature was close to 40C.

I haven't checked to see if there are any tasting notes on CellarTracker that might be his.  I'd also be curious what he thinks of its drinking window.

You must be new. Their job is to get you your order at the least convenience to you.

oh i know i know "4-6 weeks" their famous line! living in northern Ontario, we have some unique added LCBO issues! you should see how many $200-400 snow-cones i receive per year because the wines sit in unheated delivery trucks for 2-3 days in January/February ! its quite incredible! the prized popsicle  is the only time i have ever won a DRC allocation, a few years back... it arrived bloody frozen. they replaced the bottle eventually but at first it was "oops, sorry, here is your money back, we don't have any more"  only the government can operate in such a fashion.

You don't have to recruit us to the hate-KGBO movement.  Most of us have been there long ago.
