    First day is a little underwhelming I was particularly intrigued by this line: "A chance to secure the James Halliday Wine of the Year before anyone else".. and then I realised that I'd already purchased some of the YY Red #1, so couldn't be that. So, I suspect they'll have a seppeltsfield...

    They're generally quite terrible.. who's ever paid the $45RRP for Wynns BL?

    yep - shiraz of the year that year. A seriously good drop.. i've got ~18 in the cellar and haven't touched one since the release. Am going to wait my typical 5 year gap before diving in, and then it'll be ~one per year to see how it develops

    Sign up to their mailing list.. they often release new vintages at a discount. The new Plexus was released about a month ago at a slight discount

    Fair points IMO the V&A cab shiraz is better than the straight shiraz Both need a good ~3 hour decant if aged The 2012 entity is a superior wine to both ;) I have a magnum of the 2012 to open next year for my 40th, signed by John. Hopefully we'll actually go to the cellar door/artisans to drink...

    Great price on the Cirillo - what vintage? 2013?

    This is actually cheaper at $26/bottle in a 6 pack. Not sure how TWC sales work, but perhaps a little misleading. Just ordered a couple!

    haha yes, good point.. but I'd actually slightly disagree: much more fun to experience with friends ;)

    Yep, this would be my approach.. a vertical tasting is all well and good, but you need a good set of mates to enjoy it with (and chip in on the price!) No point doing it by yourself! I've got 2015s in the cellar and have already been lucky enough to try a few. Very nice :)

    Very interested in your thoughts on this.. have you had much other Napa wine? I certainly haven't, and this remarkably feels like good value from Penfolds!
