November 2018 - What are you buying?

I tried it once and I liked it enough to buy it.  

I dont know why there was only 16 bottles.

It's Chave and the local agent plays it close to their chest.

If you havent listened to the J.L Chave interview on the I'll drink to that podcast I highly reccomend it.  I cant recall if they discuss this wine in particular but it certainly adds to the sense of magic about Chave's wines.

I've had this Chave from prior vintages and it was terrific - punched above the price point.  This wine was enjoyed, not because it was a 'Chave' but because it was VERY tasty...  The 'special' comes from great wine at reasonable price - as rare at the KGBO as a bottle of the current vintage.

I was the other way around....got the 2x chave (by imposed limt) and went back to get shut out on the montefico.  Oh well. 

It seems the 'pick one item and check out' approach is the only way to have a reasonable chance at any of the more popular or low volume items, even though it means getting shut out on others. Putting it the 'cart' isn't enough. Sad from an eCommerce transaction POV.  

Picked up my final shipment of the year.
