PA doesn't deserve the best (or maybe the PLCB doesn't know what good is). Part 4

The Wine Spectator Top 10 list started to come out this week, and this is another place where the people of PA can see in so many ways that they are not treated as most other citizens are when it comes to having the best available.

Numbers 2, 3 and 4 were released on Thursday, 11/13:

#2 - Mollydooker Shiraz McLaren Vale Carnival of Love 2012, 4,729 cases

In what must be incredible piece of luck for PA wine drinkers the state actually lists this item and has 22 cases in the entire state and only at list price! I'm amazed! 

#3 -  Prats & Symington  Douro Chryseia 2011 2,400 cases. Not available in PA

- Quinta Do Vale Meão 2011, 2,300 cases
Not available in PA

Who would have bet that the PLCB managed to out do itself and get one out of the nine top wines in stock.  Nothing like giving a few crumbs to the oenophiles to try and placate them. Personally I think it was because Mollydooker was a name they recognized and not because they knew anything about it

Can they really improve to 2 out of 10 when the #1 wine is announced tomorrow and is a .200 batting average enough to keep them from being sent back to the bush leagues?  We'll find out!
