How nice!  It feels good to read about people who step up and are considerate.

That's the best ending you could possibly have hoped for! 

Glad it all worked out exactly as it did, even though your replacement bottle isn't the exact vintage wine you started with.

Glad to see this resolved so pleasantly. Maybe you'll find your way to a 2007 again someday!

Very good to hear :) And looks like they got a bit of a lesson in how fab Cali wines can be ;)

Glad to hear they replaced the wines.  A conflict-free resolution is always best, OP. :)

Great news!  Now you can have them sit for you again - but give them a good laugh and put price tags on your wine!! LOL!

If wonder if they think only French wines are expensive because they think French wines are better??  The next time you see them, they might enjoy the story of "The Judgement of Paris". http://www.businessweek.com/stories/2001-05-07/the-day-california-wines-came-of-age  A seminal event in the wine world.

Well, color me astonished.  They did...the...right...thing  :o  These are people that I'd probably seek a closer friendship with.

It's funny because Aussie wines are now taking over California wines in competitions.

Me, I'm an equal opportunity lush.  I like my reds bold, fruity, or spicy.  I like my whites dry, fruity, or both.  Keep your oak, sweets and rose's please.  If it's good I'll drink it, I don't care where it's from.  I currently have wines from France, Oregon, California, Chile, and Australia in my wine cabinet.

Toots, why are you pushing this? You asked just one page ago with no replies from the OP inbetween. No need to hound her.

OP, brilliant update! I'd let the 2009/2007 slide as well, they might not have noticed and did the best they could. And hopefully the sticker shock will have taught them something.

This update makes me so happy.

Years ago, we had a catsitter go through an entire $1000 bottle of scotch DH had been given as a work bonus. This was not someone staying with us but a neighbor popping in; we realized he'd consumed the scotch after we'd stopped speaking to said neighbor for various unrelated reasons. It was pretty heartbreaking.

Your situation, however, is not heartbreaking. These are good people.

My question, though: did they realize the Opus One was exceptional while drinking it? Or did they have a come-to-Jesus moment when they googled what they'd consumed?
