Happy to sell you mine, Scott (if it’s not what I ordered). I’m not easy at excusing fraud, even if I thought I got a sharp deal

has anyone tried the 2018 central coast? Is it not worth $10 per bottle?
Maybe, but I for sure would not have bought as much of it if I had known I was going to be getting a $20 bottle of wine instead of a $45 bottle of wine.
It would have been a pass for me

Re: Qupe Syrah rock-bottom deal on Groupon

Mine shipped yesterday and is due on Tuesday. Not hopeful.

Definitely will charge it back if it’s not the Hillside. If that doesn’t work, I’ll tell them I ran out of US dollars and have substituted Hong Kong dollars in their place

SO, is there stuff SO much better than non-brand name Dutch ovens to justify the expense? That, even at the sales price, is about 4X more than mine.
