Funny VWE is trying to blame Groupon when they are the ones that provided their inventory numbers. Also, the fact they are saying the Groupon chose what to replace it with is laughable as well.

Not to thread jack but didn't want to start a new shipping thread.
A case of Sauvignon Blanc was shipped Tuesday from Napa>Tracy>Vernon>LA and is now somewhere called Dateland, AZ. Looking at the temps of these cities it seems awfully hot to come to TN via this route.

Interesting, their 2017 does have a 91 point score from WE - though I was expecting the 91 to come from elsewhere. Price matches, gravity fed winery matches. Tasting notes don't seem to line up that well though.
