He said his store just got their allocation and since they knew him as a regular customer, they agreed to sell some of their allocation.

I have asked a few stores in SC and now NC and they all said they have had no recent allocation... it really is a like finding a needle in a haystack unless you know a distributor...

"This is an incredibly rare bottle — with a price tag to match: Pending what retailers worldwide are considering, word is you’ll be paying between $75,000 to $100,000 for one bottle — if you can get your hands on one."

To celebrate the season (and our last meal by ourselves for a few weeks) we opened our last bottle of Robert Mondavi 2011 Cabernet this evening. Not being white wine drinkers (other than champagne), we found it paired perfectly with scallops. parsley & garlic sauteed in butter over fettuccine. Drinking the last bit as I type.
