    (Bodegas Alion (Vega Sicilia)) Overnight

    Dear Friends,

    Here are a few specials at great prices to wrap up the year. None of these are cast-offs, they are first-run wines that should cost a lot more. All would have been offers in their own right but quantities are too small.

    As always, all have impeccable provenance.

    Please limit requests to 6/each wine and we will allocate accordingly:

    2006 Nicolas Cole Syrah "Dauphine" (Walla Walla)
    Last year's "Dauphine" was highly rated by the national press and given a nice review by Paul Gregutt - the 2006 should trump that wine by a wide margin as it's the first Dauphine to incorporate a majority of estate fruit in the blend. You can check pricing on the 2005 to see how good of a tarriff this is. This parcel is directly from the winery cellar. EXTREMELY LIMITED at this pre-release price (will be available early in the new year).

    2005 Clos de Sarpe 750ml (St. Emilion)
    This incredible wine reminds me of what the 1900 Margaux must have been like on release - it is so old-school and layered with a tannic, gritty presence that it has the chance to last for 50-100 years (I'm not kidding). In addition, this price is less than the first tranche offer 2-3 years ago (but we don't have much so I'm burying it here in this offer)...

    2002 Bodegas Alion (Vega Sicilia)

    Thank you,
