Half a case for me. First time buyer. Surprised and extremely happy that i was allocated.




I'm still wavering between half case and the Full Monty.


It was a tough decision for me. I did it due to storage limits and the fact that i have not tried it and that if i like it i will keep buying future vintages while i probably have not even touched or started drinking the 2012s.

Just to clarify, since I've seen this mentioned multiple times, receipt of the post card is not the same as being allocated wine. The post card is simply an offer of sale. To my knowledge, it is first-come-first-served and not guaranteed.

Do you know people that have been offered wine and not received it and/or had their check returned? I had always assumed (perhaps incorrectly) that he offered enough that he could fulfill the orders he received.

WS - to your point, I think JT does try to fulfill requests he gets from his post card mail outs. I once got my check back ~2 weeks after receiving the card and still got my full requested allocation.

My hunch is that if you wait too long, he may run out. But, I don't think this is a Marcassin situation where you literally have to get your payment back in the mail within a day or two

That said, he seems like a good guy on the phone. Probably pretty easy to find out directly from him what the scoop is

That's the vibe I got as well. I would assume all of us that got our orders sent in this week are pretty safe.
