I had enjoyed their style at first, but the last several bottle have been really ho hum, probably im just drinking them way too young...Diane Block amd Wild yeast IIRC

I think I had seen you post about them not being your style, different strokes I guess. They do need some time for the amount of oak they see.

Funny thing is...I liked them at first...there was something about them that I havent been able to figure out, whether its the oak or whole clusters?? Bill and I had one a couple weeks ago, Proprietors Reserve, and it just was so disjointed compred to everything else we drank

Im just going to let them sleep for a couple years and revisit them at that point...I think they are probably just way too young with the oak treatment...the Shultze's are cool people and i want to support them, but it's becoming time to fish or cut bait

I got the email too but didn't quite understand it. I may be slow, as I re-read it twice and didn't get it.

I'm on the 6 wines twice a year plan- 2 reserve, 4 cuvee each time. Not sure which I'd get if I switch.

I do usually order all of the other (wood, wild, diane's) and if they are saying that I will get those automatically as part of my 12, count me in! Buying a case a year is a lot for me, plus all those extras. And, Zachie keeps pressuring me to get some of that $95 burgundian clone.

I didn't get it either, I'm on the same plan and would love to switch a few of the cuvee's for wild yeast.

I opened an '06 Cuvee the other night, and even six months has helped. I think these need time.
Stu Fishler from ebob is sending me some '02s so I can finally get a sense of how these age.
I did, however, pass on the latest club order. Gotta watch every penny lately...

Yeh, and I know why you like it so much! I tried it with you the same night and it had me scrambling the next day to get on the list.

In all seriousness, it has a very unique profile that I also found very nice, the bottle was kinda cool also.
