You bet. I’ll get this one. For future reference, if you sign up for a Fed ex account, they will do a local hold at the nearest drop off for you for 5 days. I’m seldom home when fed ex is delivering to sign for the package, so I do a local hold to the Walgreens right by my house(a FedEx drop station) and I can get it whenever they are open.
Any interest in going in on this deal? If so, how many bottles would you be interested in? I live in Johnston. The new police station on MH has a video monitored area on the south side for craigslist/other private transactions, so no need to be nervous about meeting up to split the case.
@mtb002 I’ve already ordered a 3-pack because I’m not sure I want to commit to more bottles than that for a varietal I’ve never tried before. So I’ll pass on a case for now but we should compare notes later on what we thought of the wine!
I’d prefer 3-4 bottles, but will go up to 6 if no one else is interested. I’ll also have a few bottles of the last rose and chard to barter with if you’re interested and didn’t get your own.
Perfect! I’m glad you did, I just looked at the clock and had a little panic attack. How many bottles do you want Arametha? I’d be fine with 3 or 4. My new wine fridge filled up fast. Gotta start having more people over to share with.
@RedandFirefly Hey I didn’t receive a response and I really slept in so I’m not going to be there at 10. Text me when you’re available and I’ll meet you somewhere. I’m currently just planning to pack stuff today so my schedule is flexible.
Ok, I have the ice-style wine and I got my iron horse case. I didn’t get any brut, and only got 4 sparklers, so I don’t really want to let go of those, but I did get 4 upgraded PNs, so if you want 2 of those, let me know. I’m trying to figure out how to value them. They are by far the most expensive in the case, but I didn’t pay retail, so I don’t know how to figure this.
@mtb002@RedandFirefly I was planning to pay $30 per bottle if you were part with any, but if you don’t want to at that price, especially for really expensive wine, I understand. I’m available tomorrow to pick up the ice wine. Let me know how much to bring- I’ll take one or both bottles of Pinot.
Ok the angel eis is $16.67/bottle x 4 is 66.68, which is a pain to exchange cash for. Feel free to round either way, I won’t be offended. Can we try to meet at that Walgreens on Beaver and Douglas again or is that too far for Arametha?
Oh dear god, Matt is going to kill me, but IH is an autobuy for me. I’ll post when I get the case and let you know if there’s anything I’m willing to part with. Just hope I get to remain married when this one shows up.
HAH! When you type a specific word, it triggers mediocrebot’s algorhythm and it spits out a chain of nonsense. The current word is a.w.e.s.o.m.e. It’s one of the joys of being an active participant in the mediocre-verse.
Hello! South side Des Moines, long time wooter and now casemater, prefer reds and bubbles but don’t mind the occassional still white. WineSmith, Ty Caton, & Wellington(RIP) have been my autobuys in the past.
@n8white13 We’ve (wife and I) been looking for a French Bordeaux for a while and Arametha I’ve talked about it being one of the few styles that we’d likely order regardless. Figured at this price point the risk was relatively low. I’d have been much more hesitant with a higher entry point. Also Friday deals tend to go very quickly sho i made a snap decision when it popped up.
I bought a case of Iron Horse if anybody wants some. The switch to UPS is really inconvenient for me, so probably won’t be ordering much unless it’s something I know I’ll like, anybody else have better luck with UPS?
@Arametha I’m still interested in splits. It’s just a bit less convenient unfortunately. Currently we’re working our way through our overstock… Still keeping an eye out for things that pique our fancy though.
Hey, I’m sorry, I’ve been dealing with the ‘rona, the family is technically quarantined for another 10 days or so. We’ll have to get together towards the middle of the month if everyone stays healthy.
@mtb002 Hey, no problem at all! There’s no rush. Hope everyone is staying healthy through your quarantine. We’re all still healthy so far.
By the way, i ordered a case if the Iron Horse unoaked chardonnay this morning if you’d like some I’m happy to share it as well.
Perfect, I don’t need a whole case of that, still have a little left over from the wine woot days, and some from WTSO, but I could use a couple. I was going to get some this am, but it’s sold out, so good on you!
I just checked and I’m down to 3 bottles, so I’ll definitely take 6. Do you like the sigma 6 sauv Blanc? I have some bottles of that and it’s too grassy for my taste, do you have any interest in it at all?
@Arametha@RedandFirefly yes, my bad, they arrived recently and are hanging in my cellar. On vacay now but will be back in dsm early August and we can make a time to meet up. Where do you usually go? Any place is fine, just curious how you have handled in the past.
@Arametha@n8white13 Yup, open to pretty much wherever to meet up. Note, I’ll be out of town on my own Vacay 7/31-8/9 so I’ll be a bit later to meet up. Don’t let that hinder you guys meeting up though.
@Arametha@n8white13@mtb002 At my wife’s urging (I was going to pass) I ended up picking up a case of the Louis Latour Chassagne Montrachet Rouge. More than happy to share if any of you are interested in a bottle or more.
@n8white13@RedandFirefly Yup I do! Can we do Saturday morning at 10:30? I don’t know where everyone is located. Will the parking lot of the Walgreens on Fluer by the airport work? Also, please tell me how much I owe you.
@arametha@redandfirefly that works great for me, both time and place. The cab franc was $21/btl including shipping so $84 for 4. I haven’t tried one yet btw… like to let them rest awhile post shipment.
Excellent, will likely be 6 or more if no one else is in. We got one hell of a shock a few months ago, I’m pregnant, so no alcohol for me. I’ve been sad to let a few of the offers pass by here, but this one looks too good to pass up.
ETA: DH is still working from home, so I’ll order, it’s no big deal for him to answer the door for UPS.
Everybody is doing great, little one is 8 weeks old, so not sleeping predictably yet and I’m not drinking alcohol again yet, so I’m going to pass. Hope everyone is staying healthy! Get your shots as soon as you can.
