WTSO Lascombes was a steal.

If you dig this wine, it is a steal as well.

Cinderella Wine - Tonight's Offer (2/22/10)

#404 Post by Lance Smith » February 22nd, 2010, 6:15 pm

I just got my nightly email from Cinderellawine.com tonight but I remain a bit confused (see screenshot link below):

http://screencast.com/t/MGU0ZTAwOGQt" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

So, they are promoting that the lowest price on the web is $27.99 but their sale price is $29.99. The Cinderella offer for $17.77 expired in 4 minutes? Am I missing something here?

Here is another question: Has anyone ordered anything from Gary's offering here?

If you mean has anyone ordered anything from Cinderella, yes. I ordered 3 of the Chave Offerus. I haven't tried any yet, but for $16.72 and free shipping, I don't think I could really go wrong.

Saw this - the Cliff Lede sells for around $45. If you figure additional shipping cost or local sales tax added in (depending on where you get it) it works out to about $50. Thinking like this, the other two wines are free.

Seems like a deal, but I'm skipping. I have too much wine as it is now.

In for two. The Malbec and Syrah are free, after the Stags Leap Cab. Will let the Cab rest for a year, or so, and down the others between now and then.

That was exactly the reasoning I went through and made the same decision for the same reason.

I used different reasoning -- a case of Ridge Lytton Springs at $26/btl just seemed oh so much more interesting.

Cindy Wine -- 2005 Macchiole Paleo (?)

#414 Post by G. D y e r » March 8th, 2010, 10:52 pm

What do y'all think. Deal or no deal at $55.55? Not likely to be found cheaper, but $50+ is still $50+. Is it unique enough to justify the cost?

If it's still up on Cinderella Wine tomorrow I may think about it. Winemaking notes and reviews definitely point to lots of oak, so the odds of an ethereal bouquet look about equal with odds of smokey vanilla mess.

Mike, I struggled with this one but the Brunello didn't strike me as all that wonderful.

Arguably the Brunello is nearly free with the Léoville but still, 150 smackers...

Plus I have some fab Brunello sitting in the cellar that it never occurs to me to drink.

If only we could have a Tuscan Exploration Week, then I would finally have an excuse.

Seems like an easy pass to me. The Leoville is readily available for under $100 according to WS. So thats $60 for a Brunello that is pretty much average? I see Wine Library sells this for $150 and seems to have plenty (again according to WS), so its a good way to package them and clear inventory. 1997 was a watershed year in Brunello pricing thanks to Spectator's rantings, but in retrospect, although a great vintage, there have been many great Tuscan vintages. Now if you're trying to backfill your cellar, this may be a decent way to do that, but hardly seems like an outstanding deal. JM2C.

They were probably my favorite flash sight, then something changed a year or two ago. The once active forum is no longer and boy it seems like a clearing house for 12 dollar Italian wines anymore. Haven't bought in a long time.

Speaking to this, how did WL (parent to CW) lose it's way? They used to offer interesting wines from nearly every price point. Then Gary V decides he can make more money becoming an internet marketing consultant & speaker, other top staff leave to other gigs, and then they are left to fend for themselves without a vision of what a store can be. Sad, really. Perhaps one day they get their mojo back, but look at their offerings and it'll take a dedicated person to put them back on track.

It’s a long story, but Gary’s dad Sasha always was the owner. It’s his business, and when his son left it just seemed like a gradual decline. Not because they didn’t have good people, but there was definitely a ‘magic’ era under Gary.
