I have recently subscribed to Wines 'Til Sold Out - www.winestilsoldout.com - each day they send me an email of the "wine of the day" for sale online only - and a short review, the suggested retail price and then the price they will sell it for.
I have not yet purchased any wine - and am curious to find out if anyone else has purchased wine this way, and experiences. I am a curious wine drinker with about 30 bottles in my cellar - I am not a collector, more of a horder who just happens to uncorking a bottle and enjoying a glass on occassion - as in every occassion - as in after dinner.
Here is the list for "Marathon Monday" sale which begins at midnight tonight.
Do any of these wines merit watching out for? I appreciate any feedback. I have Googled some of the wines to read reviews and retail price - the Simi Landslide seems like my kind of wine.......thoughts?
MARATHON MONDAY: WHAT TO EXPECT
- Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon 2002
- Chateau St. Jean Cabernet Sauvignon Cinq Cepages 2000
- Heitz Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon 1998
- Showket Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 1998
- Gaja Langhe Sito Moresco 1998

Thank you in advance. Also, if anyone knows of other places to look around........
Today's wine was Chateau Haut Brion Cru Classe Des Graves 1996. They list the original price as $299.99, but it released at about $175. Still at $239 or so it is an ok, not great deal.
The wine right now is Stag's Leap Wine Cellars
Fay Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley 2003
for $59.99 -
A new one comes up every hour or so........
I've just been watching ------ waiting until I feel or am recommended to push that buttom!
(I work at a non-profit which means what I like and what I can afford do not necessarily go hand in hand, sigh)
It says shipping is free with purchase of 2 or more...for less expensive bottles, shipping is free with 6 or more bottles.
Higher priced wines get free shipping with the purchase of two or three bottles. It seems that always the purchase of a case gets free shipping.
