Don't pass on the two Alpines, Swan and Hillside. Don't say I didn't warn you. Wink

Ditto here. I also didn't get an email yet, but my allocation was posted anyway.

Same here. I was listing what was allocated earlier, now taking a look...I get nada on the Swan.

Also, 29.75 is the price for the Alesia Sonoma Coast IF you get a case. If not, it goes to $35.

Anybody know how much Swan Terrace is made? Even though I wasn't allocated any, my order comments were to the effect that I would buy extra bottles if there are any.

I think I'll follow your advice. I'm allotted 2 each of the Swan and Alpine Hillside and 3 each of the two Alesia offerings. This may be my only Cal. Pinot purchase of the year.

After the initial rush of getting the mailer and wanting to buy, I've realized that I cannot at the moment. So if anyone wants it....let me know...

Thus far just Alpine, but it is pretty good size and does have very different areas in it. Plus the clonal selections vary in areas. The Swan is Swan clones for instance. I believe the Hillside is various "suit case" clones and is from the steeper part of the vineyard. They were quite different when I tasted them.

I think it's like Kevin said over on EBob. This way they can still make shipping windows.

Was so tempted on the Rhys - but I just can't do $60 Cali pinots anymore.

I really enjoy their wines, too.

Will be worth being on the list once their vines age though.

Do you stay in the good graces if you skip a release?
