I went with a few of the 503 error. A bit more simplistic than the 502 but fuller bodied.

NV Salmon for $20 a bottle. Heck, I liked it for $30. Did say damaged labels, no biggie. Never enough champagne!

I've picked up a few champagnes here and there but that's it. Mondavi was tempting but over $100 a pass for me. Have a lot of CS laying down don't really need more

Coming out swinging to kickoff power hour. Comte Georges Bonnes Mares 2017 for $499.

I like to be more thoughtful before pulling the trigger on expensive juice.

Agree. Unless you were waiting for it. Not in my price range but after looking online looks to actually be a good deal.

Agreed, the pricing seemed very nice, but regardless, $2,200 on a 750ml bottle of juice is definitely not a 5 minute decision for most!

argggg... I pulled the trigger on the 2016 Taupenot Mazoyeres-Chambertin. It kept taking me to the 'Too late' page. Turns out it registered all of my attempts. I wanted 3, now I have 9?

I emailed them. Lets see what happens.

I got a ‘too late’ and ended having it on my account. Only $11 Sauvignon Blanc, so no bigger. But, they are screwing up!

I've been watching it scroll by. The deals are very few and far between and they're on more expensive bottles. Wrote down some offers:

Wine : $Retail/$Best Web/$Last Bottle Offer

Y. Rousseau Tannat Paso Robles 2017: 35/35/24
Marquis de Mons Margaux 2015: 44/28/22
Guarachi Cabernet Sauvignon Heritage Single Vineyard (Las Piedras) 2011 150/150/65
Cortello Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2016 75/65/36
Anantaah Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2014 80/55/35
Delicia de Baco Rioja 2015 55/55/25
La Chapelle de Lafaurie-Peyraguey Sauternes 2016 (375mL) 35/30/17
Red Car Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2015 38/35/16
Cascina Adelaide Barolo Baudana 2012 125/125/49
Gard Vineyards Vaucluse Red Lawrence Estate Wines 2015 35/35/19
Pierre Rougon Beaumes de Venise Hommage 2015 50/45/16
Beaulieu Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve 2016 150/105/99
Frankland Estate Olmo's Reward 2012 55/44/27

$Retail and $Best Web is Last Bottle's assertions, they don't quite match up to reality. Looking at CT averages, WS-Pro lows and auction averages via Wine Market Journal, none of the above except for Guarachi are worth it. Maybe if you're buying 1 bottle so free shipping vs usual non-local retail becomes a good deal. Guarachi went in literally 10 seconds. (I am not familiar with the producer, so didn't pull the trigger)

A few Power Hour offers

Bruno Giacosa Barolo Falletto 2011 250/159/139
Château Troplong Mondot 2015 .../.../109
Clos Saint Jean Chateauneuf du Pape Sanctus Santorium 2015 (1.5L) 600/440/375
Morgado Cabernet Sauvignon Sage Ridge Vineyard 2016 175/145/119
Gerard Raphet Clos Vougeot Grand Cru 2017 225/160/109
Domaine Anne Gros Richebourg Grand Cru 2017 750/610/449
DuMOL Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2016 110/100/79

I barely missed it too. First time I clicked purchase I clicked too hard so it did an internet lookup. Wondering if that cost me the bottle.
