Curious if anyone has taken a peak at the Insider yet. Wow. Congrats to Merry Edwards. She has become one of my favorite California pinot producers, but I have limited experience with her Sauvignon Blanc. Appears I have been missing out.

Yes 96 points Eek

I cannot remember the last time a 100% Sauvignon Blanc for NZ, Cali received a score this high ? Best I remember was a 94 for Cloudy Bay in the 90 somethings.

Has anyone tasted this ? Is it a Classic wine in their opinion. I just ask since there is no way on earth a bottle of this wine ( or any other Cali wine ) will make it to the LCBO at a price I would be willing to pay.

Bought some; haven't tried it yet, but James Laube (who is not the one who bestowed 96 points on this wine) also tasted it and reported on his blog that it's the best Sauvignon Blanc he's ever had from anywhere. In terms of a high recommendation, it doesn't get any better than that. Definitely sounds classic.

AZCAT,

I called them and get this, they want $52 to ship 3 bottles to AZ.. they can keep their high scoring SB for that shipping raping!

Wow...unreal. Wonder what a case would cost me? I'll let you know... I did see that they provide free ground shipping to many states with a two-case order, but I don't think I really need that much right now...

6 bottle limit for the SB so you'd have to order a lot of pinot to get to two cases. The woman on the phone told me their distributor here is Southern so I'm sure they have some agreement and that's why it's so expensive
What the heck?

Escape and I have been saying the Edwards SB is the finest outside of Loire forever! Now, some guy named Laube gives it a 96 and everyone is listening. Razz Wink

I really think the Musque clone makes much of the difference compared to others, but not too sure about that.

Darn escape, looks like it will be even harder to get now. Frown

No kidding. We should get an Arizona cartel together to order two cases and split them up.

Excellent...thanks for the heads up!

I've wondered that myself. I thought they only charged sales tax if they were shipping to the state in which they were located, but I could be wrong - I'm not a tax expert. I'm just as Confused as you are!
