So now I have a bottle of each.
    I need better friends like that. Best I can hope for from my friends is sharing a case of Bud with born on date 25 days prior.

    All the best growers send their fruit to Joe. Just read through the wines he has available -- it is literally a central coast hall of fame of vineyards: pisoni, stolpman, fiddlestix, dierberg, clos pepe, Garys, purisma, etc.

    As for me, I have an '09 Bordeaux and before that had some Kinero Chard out of Paso from Anthony Yount.

    Funny you say that. It's the only club I have ever increased my purchasing from. I dropped hobel and a few others this year and doubled up on joes wines. I had a 2000 Syrah from him that I think was my wine of my lifetime so far....I usually buy a case of the older Syrahs every time he
    It's them on sale, and take two each year from the club. Joe is one of only 4 people I buy from these days that is not retail.

    The 2008 Pisonis are supposed to be great. I had the 2010 Pisoni Estate on Saturday and loved it.

    I just put in my order for Clos Solene out of Paso. It is going to be really difficult for me to not order as much 2012 and 2013 wines in the next couple years. These are a couple really good CA vintages.

    As for Pisoni, Alan, I am still on the wait list, but I get the Lucia allocation. I forgot about it this year though.
