    Didn't get through all the wines we had planned last night but the '14 Maison Leroy Bourgogne Blanc was the highlight of the evening. LeroyBB.jpg

    In the middle of a pack from hell before moving out in a few weeks. I'm pretty surprised it doesn't look worse tbh

    I received a No Girls allocation this year. Would you recommend snagging it?

    Thanks. I will give my 2012 tribe a shot soon to decide whether I want to continue.

    Yes. I think the Syrah is really good. The Grenache I’m less enamored with. The Tempranillo is good but I dropped that from my allocations as I got added to other lists and had to prioritize.

    Thanks. I ordered the Syrah and passed on the other two.

    It is a bigger, more ripe style than I usually drink but not a bad pairing with steak frites. D6F9D49E-CBA3-4EAB-B51D-25D9530EC15C.jpeg

    Aubert SVD chardonnay allocation was not kind to my wallet, but I’m very excited.

    Yeah, I've had No Girls, Horsepower and Saxum in the last week. It definitely adds up.

    So I've been re-evaluating what mailing lists I want to be on since we're moving back to NYC and while we've been able to avoid most shipping fees with winery pick ups, that will obviously no longer be the case. What I've got left is below. Leaning towards jumping off of Turley and Riverain.
