View Full Version : shoppers vineyard FR Rutledge selection

How many have ordered this?

Sounds like it was half a$$ed put together not numbering the bottles after the price issue deal that they had with shopper vineyard. I'd love to see the actual side label for all the info. Im guessing since Rutledge put his name on this selection it really has his full backing. Im just wondering if it's going to be one of the same regular barrel strength type's like PS has instead of what they meant to price it at which was higher than the 2011 limited edition bottle. Just getting consensus of thoughts before I purchase a couple before they run out. Seems like a good deal, it was just a little odd to me for some reason that it was a lazy second bottling as the first they said was screwed up and only yielded 25 bottles, not sure how that happens when the look in the barrel.

I ordered one. It's 10 year OBSV and selected by Jim Rutledge. Good enough for me.

$5 off code mentioned in the "Good Deals!" forum...

I ordered one. They tried to deliver it yesterday but no one was home for the "Adult Signature". Hopefully I'll be there today and have the bottle for a tasting this weekend.

I had this today. Big fruit on the nose and a very creamy mouthfeel. IMO quite a bit better than the normal shelf offering. A good pour at the going price.
