Why is this thought to be Pride? VS Merlot from Pride is 100% Merlot and the regular Merlot they make 4000+ cases of.
Simply the price. Regular Pride Merlot is $65 at the winery and VS Merlot is is $88, so much closer to Cam's stated $80+ price tag.
Not just that, he said he thinks he bought the entire production. The regular Merlot has what 4000-5000 cases a year?

I don't think he was asking why we think it's *this* Merlot, he's asking why we think it's Pride.

This wine has Cab in it, so can't be VS....the regular Merlot is 4000+ cases and Cam states the 350 cases offered are the entire vintage.
He does not say this is the exact/winery blend/bottle. The guess is he bought the juice from VS Merlot and blended/bottled it himself. But the reason we think Pride is the other 3 line up extremely well and if you add this (it's the price point here) there really is no other winery that could ever fit.

As Matt also stated Cam also noted he bought the entire production.

Aside from that, it is not that uncommon for someone buying bulk to blend a bit of the purchased wine. Either because the producer requested it (see #5066), because the producer delivered a bit less than anticipated, or just because they want to stretch out their yield a bit more.

I know it's true. However, that 100-150 case thing is if it's stored in small boxes not the shipping ones. And I want to get out of that locker as fast as possible. I currently plan to store the dH in the shipping cases and in 6-9 months move it into my house or a smaller storage unit there in small boxes.
I'm just teasing. Honestly, I’m still flabbergasted you you got an entire MLB team’s worth of wine storage space.
lol. i'm pretty sure it's not for the stadium sales. but yah, it makes for a cool story. "the padres just vacated this space!"
Figured it was the players' collective storage. For their personal use and for player events. The website leaderboard notes you have 90 cases. So you gotta step up to meet people's expectations cult leader neener [stirthepothal.gif] pileon

Well, I added 103 cases for the Singapore Wine Club and someone has changed the value to 34 cases. So someone thinks it is fun to mess with the leaderboard for whatever reason. Guess there are haters lurking around in every corner of the internet.

That's a crazy amount of wine to purchase. Out of curiosity, how many people are you splitting all these cases between?

It has to be Pride because he states the winery straddles the Napa Sonoma county lines. But Cam is probably just exaggerating the list price a little. It’s more likely to be the Estate, as it’s a blend. Pride used to be a big deal to me in the Foley era but I haven’t heard about real excitement over there, and have not bought a bottle in over a decade.

@RodrigoB - we have about 150 members in the wine club in Singapore. For the upcoming shipment, we have 249 cases going with a reefer container from the Port of Oakland:
* de Négoce: 105 cases (after the latest 2 cases added)
* Wine Access: 91 cases (mainly private labels with some original labels as well)
* Claudine: 42 cases
* Other: 11 cases (all original labels)

In absolute numbers it sounds like a lot (about 3,000 bottles) but when split among 150 people, living mainly in apartments without much storage space, the per capita quantity is more modest compared to most de Négoce buyers in this thread.

Wow, that's some serious piling on there.

The fact that this is a blend does throw the only doubt into this seeming no brainer. It will be interesting to see if Pride releases a VS Merlot for 2018, if they don't that would be quite definitive. Also, if they decided 2018 didn't merit a VS merlot, why not go this way and blend it with some cab?

But why would Pride skip the VS Merlot in a terrific year? Is it a restaurant release? With so much of the regular Merlot made, couldn't they offload 400 cases to their mailing list?
Not trying to be argumentative, but this has been discussed 1000x times here. There are 1 million+ reasons why a producer might bulk out wine. Maybe they are knee-deep in inventory due to falling sales in a post-covid world? Who knows?

Confident this is Pride VS Merlot.

Something else interesting in the description of the VS Merlot from the Pride website that may explain what's going on here with the blend;
Once the VS Merlot has been blended, the rough formula for the Reserve Claret is 2/3 VS Merlot and 1/3 Reserve Cab. We typically make around 500 cases of VS Merlot each vintage compared to 600+ cases of Reserve Claret and 5000+ cases of Pride Merlot.

Yes it is. Curious I just get a message trying to order that this is no longer a valid page. Wonder if Pride was a bit unhappy that the identity of the wine was so clearly identified. Straddling the line and elevation above 2,000 from is a dead giveaway. Did anyone actually get this order?

I received confirmation of my order. Cam may have been a bit too precise with his clues. I believe Pride is the 'only' vineyard that straddles the Napa / Sonoma counties line.

Very possible that the winery provided him with 350 cases worth of juice. By the time Cam blended in his dash of cab (and potentially some more merlot?) he has 400+ cases to sell.

A couple other reasons come to mind as to why N.69 has 10% cab in the mix:

1. this was a trial run by the winery and they opted not to sell it under their own label
2. the winery required it to be altered (i.e. "no more than 90% our wine") so no one could say the same wine sold for much cheaper on the bulk market


Frankly is sometimes surprises me how much Cam is allowed to share about some of these wines, allowing the sleuths to figure out the winery with reasonable confidence. Surely no winery is thrilled about that.

I too would not be happy if I were a winery that was trying to sell off bulk but do not want to be named. One of the real big issues here is that the winery may be selling off stuff that they don't think represents them well - so that if Cam or someone else bottles it and gives the impression that it is 'the same' or 'similar' to one of the winery's wines, but it is not up to snuff with what the winery usually releases, he could have a negative effect on the reputation of the winery.

This may get interesting, folks - and it may make your 'sleuthing' more difficult as Cam probably should 'cease and desist' giving away as much info . . . unless there is no non-disclosure document.

Lawyers?

Cheers.

It’s not a huge secret that many producers do not use all of their own fruit. When I buy Round Pond estate bottling, I don’t wonder if I can buy “the same or similar” wine for less money by buying Duckhorn, Frank Family, or anyone else who buys their fruit.

I assume each contract comes with an understanding for what he is able to give away in order to make the most effective sales pitch. If not, that’s a serious oversight on the part of the “original” producers.

I don’t think any winery sell bulk excess to a private label without a NDA.

But I do tend to agree with Larry that at times Cam likely does give a bit more than he likely should away in the descriptions.

As a consumer, I think this is great as we can sort out who the source is. If I was the winery that sold the bulk, not so much

Interestingly, OG69 is no longer showing up on the dN website. Searching for 69 results in no hits (rather, it shows OG43 as the only search result) and the link from the original mailer doesn't work.

I didn't mean to imply things will change, just that I'm sometimes surprised. He's been doing this for many years under the Cameron Hughes label, so surely knows what's permissible to market with.

The implication that it *is* a prestigious winery that you can always shortlist to a few is part of the cachet that makes the wines attractive in the first place. I would guess the more you can share, the easier/more you could sell them for. There's a balancing point for all involved, including the wineries that want the most $ for their bulked out wines.

Clearly the only smart thing to do now (based on the extensive meta-science discussion yesterday) is to assume that we are buying Pride Reserve Claret and trick our palates into ignorance induced bliss!

This has happened previously with a few different releases. They've always come back. I wouldn't read too much into it.

Maybe the NDA is as simple as “will not disclose the source,” but I’d assume the language is more specific than that. If it really is that ambiguous, that leaves them open to the argument we’re having here which is: what is “disclosure” ... and more specifically what is so obvious/specific that it is functionally disclosure?

Different players same questions.

Cam a little more involved then.

Same here - full up, especially on Cabs unless its a truly sensational offer. I think the fact he has a bunch of Cab juice here from the winery, likely supports the theory that yesterday's wine was required to be diluted with a bit of the Cab just to change it up from the VS before he sold it. I'll be interested in seeing tasting notes on this one, especially since it seems like he's projecting in his email that future years may be much more of his blends than this year has been. Those more familiar with CHWine may already be able to speak to that of course.

Fake News!

Ok not fake news.

Still in excess of 600 cases left. I'm sure it'll sell out but its kind of funny how fast the first 150 or so cases disappear then it bogs down quite a bit.

This one's pretty tempting, but from CT reviews it seems like the style is on the more ripe end of the spectrum (mid-14% ABV notwithstanding). I think I'll pass.

Sorry, I think I missed something upthread that I can't find. What does everyone think today's, "O.G. No. 68 2018 Sonoma County 'Mountain' Cab" is?

Thanks, Eric. I sure you y'all are right becuase I like Pride a lot. I bought a case.

Being a newbie to de Negoce, how does one buy less than a case? Or, are some people just referring to split cases with other people?

Brandon,

Unfortunately de Negoce is by the case only. Because of that there have been several people that have grouped together to purchase/split cases with those around their region.

There’s been a couple of ventures to try to connect people interested in case sharing. Fellow berserker Andreas started a case sharing group with many people in Singapore and built a little site/email list called Case Splitter to help connect people interested in sharing cases with others.

I tried starting a case splitting database thread (a la the offline thread) to try to compile people interest in sharing cases by region. So far there hasn't been much traction on that end.

Another berserker Laura created a an awesome site called de Negociants to serve a a hub for offers and guesses as well as a wine exchange and some other features.

I’ve also at times just reached out to fellow berserkers who participate on the thread and are in my area to gauge their interests in sharing cases.

If you tell us your general area, there might be a group near you.

I like pride, and it sure is a beautiful setting to visit. If I had not bought the case yesterday I would probably get this, but I really need to get more selective. I keep saying that....

I've got two cases coming from winebid, stuff I bought earlier this year and the free storage is up, so getting that shipped. I have shipments from MacDonald, Realm, Myriad, and Carlisle all coming in the next week as well, and now the 10 De negoce cases are starting to come.

My wife expressed her displeasure regarding all of this for the first time last night - so I will need to get serious about being more selective. 😉
