@axewelder I tried a 3 split, see above, but it’s difficult to keep communication on here. Marla25 and I might have an opening on the last mixed offer for a 3rd split. Still trying to figure out how to talk to vinoveritas.
Good afternoon fellow Baltimore Area casemates, I have made a couple of purchases thus far and am interested in splitting out some of the cases. We will likely figure out a more efficient system eventually, but for now I will just post my details here. On a related note, does anyone have any interest in the wine that was released the morning of the 26th of January 2018: Broken Earth Winery PULL CdR Red Blend? I believe we have until Sunday night to make up our minds.
@jml326 no bother here, I think everyone might be easing into Casemates. I for one jumped on the first couple of cases and am now considering how much / how often to purchase. I fully encourage more not less communication.
It looks like the Apriori Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir is the first offering that isn’t shipping to Maryland. I guess we get the weekend off, or a chance to open one of the many bottles that have already arrived.
I am in Frederick (and I drive to DC/Baltimore all the time), always up for splitting if the offer is compelling. Feel free to send me a note if you are interested. My “cellar” is beyond full, but that hasn’t stopped me from buying before!
@jml326 Not as of yet, probably later on this morning. I was going to wait for someone to speak for the other three, but then realized it doesn’t matter, i can always arrange that later. Like i said, brain not firing so well.
@marla25 I’m so far behind in life. If you are still interested in 3 bottles would this Saturday at the Lib be ok? My kid has swim lessons on Sat now, so 9am to 10am meet up is still possible. Anything later would have to be after 3 or 4pm
@kls_in_MD I could swing a meetup Saturday. My kid has swim lesson at noon. And we typically run errands after. I could make a small change to our route and meet you somewhere on the west(ish) side of the beltway.
@jml326 Catonsville libe is fine. My Sat sched. depends some on weather. If raining much, no bike ride, so pm could be 12 noon (is that the pm one? I never know so usually just use 24 hr time.) If we can get a ride in, then maybe 1400/2pm?
I’m going to go ahead and spring for a case of the Ty. I know @jchasma wants a couple, if anyone else does, let me know. This will likely be my last unless something amazing comes up as I’ve a vacation to pay for and running out of room!
@jchasma@marla25 I wrote to CM as i had not seen this wine ship yet, but others seem to be talking about seeing it ship. Turns out the winery is taking a precaution because of the long weekend, and hotter weather in the area. So I hope to see it ship today and get it next week.
@jml326 I’ll go for one, if you want to sell one. I still have a couple in the rack from the old woot days. That guy can really squeeze a grape. If you have a spare case or 2 of Wellington around, I would be SUPER interested in a share from those!
I messaged the powers that be about this and they want us to check all the other bottles for visual signs of damage. If you could (maybe sacrifice the foil… I know sacrilegious). I might be able to get some help.
The bit right above is exactly what irritates me about this forum software. I’m subscribed to this thread, so why don’t I get notifications about all posts? I got an email for jml’s request for a split on the wine smith. I didn’t get one for jchasma’s reply. It makes no sense.
Anyone willing to split a case of the Mentida White Blend? I live just north of Silver Spring but work in Glen Burnie and pick my kid up at daycare in Ellicott City so I can meet near any of those places.
@jchasma@jml326@kls_in_MD So, there’s definitely interest in BMore. I’ll order a case with 3 bottles for @jml326 and 3 more that are “available” until someone specifically claims them. (It wouldn’t be the end of the world if I ended up with 9 bottles.) The question is whether someone else wants to order/split another case…
@jml326 The last couple bottles of sweeter wines have been too much for me lately, suppose my tastes have been changing. That said, I’m curious about this one, but don’t want to commit to more than a couple, I think.
@Zortapa@MARLA25 Great! Seems like enough interest. I’ll go ahead and grab a case and I can meet with you guys once it comes. I’m open to keeping 3-6 bottles so if anyone else wants in on our case around Baltimore, let me know!
Stillman Brown is some pretty amazing juice, recalling a few I wooted. Anybody want to split a case in quarters? Pretty expensive stuff AND I bought the case of Scott Harvey to have some daily drinkers… So, no split, no buy for me.
@NJHokie@kls_in_MD Give me a couple of days as I do not have the commitment from my coworkers on the # of bottles they want.
And @ NJHokie I work at JHH in Baltimore and I live in Baltimore. Depending on where you live could make exchange easier.
@jchasma@jml326@Zortapa OK, Thanks for the patience folks, this weekend is IT! I’m in Baltimore for bike racing on Sunday from about 0800 to 1430 (08 to 2+ pm). I’ll be at The Flower Mart Criterium at Mount Vernon Place, parenting, assistant coaching, and volunteering at a course crossing. My kid will be done racing a bit before 1030 (when my volunteer shift starts (ending at 1400.) SOOOOO: I could handoff at 1020 or just after 1400. Not sure yet where I’ll park and (depending on how many of you can meet) if I’ll roll the wine with me to the venue. This applies to Tannat and the Winesmith Cab (@zortapa).
@jml326@kls_in_MD@Zortapa I unfortunately can’t meet this weekend as we’re out of town for a family event. I’m so sorry. Can someone who can meet me in Baltimore or Towson grab two of the Tannat for me? Or if someone else just wants to buy them, I hate to keep anyone on the hook to meet.
Clark, or @WineSmith, sent out an e-mail saying he was selling 15 cases of his 2017 Norton (a grape I’ve never tried) for 239.88 + tax + free shipping. His website has it listed third one down. Looking forward to it!
I forgot this thread existed - thanks for bringing it to the top.
Columbia/Ellicott City area here. I generally lean toward the reds (love Cabernet Sauvignon), but like to experiment from time to time.
Some of my early mates here have disappeared. If you’re still around and just not buying please check-in. Don’t be shy I travel to share and trade. Columbia, Owings Mills, Towson, Bel Air…if there is a Wegman’s and a Costco I’m good for my Saturday errands.
@jml326 Columbia is an easy place for me to meetup. I’ve got 4 bottles of the Mentida white, one bottle of 2003 Chateau de Suronde Quarts de Chaume and one bottle of 2015 moscato Giallo (wine.woot leftover?) that are available for swapping. Obviously go more for whites but willing to try sweeter side reds.
Hi everyone! I need between two and four case boxes if anyone has extras. I’d love to pickup closer to Towson but could send my husband into the city if need be. Whisper at me and we can set up a meet up.
When Bmore opens up, and we can gather in some sense of the form later this summer/early fall, love to invite some local (or distant!) Casemates to a special tasting at QG in Downtown, msg me so I can keep you posted!
I just took delivery of a case of the Y. Rousseau 2017 Tannat. I could trade off a few perhaps. Their previous Tannat (the Reserve) blew my doors off. I had to try this one too. I got some of those InZINs last offer and they were Good. I had just pulled a cork on a bottle the night before, so waiting on my first taste still…
I ask because I’m waiting on Scott Harvey InZINerator and just got in Two Jakes of Diamonds Roman Reserve Cabernet Franc so I’m getting full. Would offer up these as possible trade if anyone wants to split the WS
@bunnymasseuse , @dschonew, @cduan, Way WAY too many orders. Rec’d Spellbound and Pedroncelli, Andrew Murray on the way. Need to meet to get WS sparkling grenache, Briceland Petit Verdot, and Y. Rousseau Tannat. Brain exploding w complexities of it all. BOOM. I’m sure they’ll be putting up some more WS and I’ll be sunk.
…also based on bunny’s recc and drop-in ratting on the latest 2 Jakes offer, I took delivery yesterday on my first real decanter. My Jakes case is on the way. Still willing to split off a quarter of it (or trade for more WS Grenache!)
Ok folks, I’m meeting @cduan to get Grenache that was DC ONLY sold this Sunday, I plan on taking a trip to VA to exchange with @thelecroy & @wardad who has other stuff waiting… IF you work it out with cduan and I ahead of time, I’m happy to transport your wine from him to you if you are more local to me ( @kls_in_MD ). @jclarkie78 are you closer to one group or the other? Havent done a pass off with you before so trying to strategize the best delivery method for cduan and I.
@kls_in_MD@Zortapa yeah me too, just had the Louis latour delivery , splits pending withZ on the Jdusi and still have something else otw… have yo make room if I see the WS CF come back, getting 2cases this time! Haha
HHHHHH!!! And now I get a UPS notice that the shipment was damaged and is being returned to the sender!
@jml326@kls_in_MD@Winedavid49@Zortapa really hope they didn’t damage it out and keep it, happened to me and salmon from AK… Frederick claimed it spiked and broke and would not show proof, 80# salmon gone
@kls_in_MD@Zortapa I’ll nibble, heck I’ll take all the merlot that no one wants, my fav and yet the only merlot I currently have is 2J! (Maybe a hidden Wellington but out of sight out it mind). Get the case and I’ll work out the remnants Z.
