I'm counting 9 cogs in the rear. I'd guess mid-2000s

Specialized has a good online archive where you can search older models by year. You can probably identify this Allez on their site by the year this color was offered.

Based on components and color I would say it's a 2006 model.

If you own it, then we may be able to confirm the age via the serial number.

Plonz was spot-on. I think it's a 2006. 105/Tiagra components seem to fit:

Stuck it on Craigslist for $225. Not sure if that is too much but can always adjust price.

$225 is probably underpriced, but this is dependent on your market. I sold this similar era Allez with lesser components recently for $350, cleaned, tuned & ready to go.

Completely agree with this.

@led, if you were in Houston, I have a friend looking for a sub-$500 STI bike who would jump on this at your price. I think your Allez could fetch $375-$400,

Well my bike isn't tuned up. The chain fell off when I was changing gears during test. Put it back on but...otherwise it rides okay, gears do work, brakes also. I state that it needs a tuneup. It is 54cm. Maybe my market sucks. I am in Charlottesville and there are tons of bikes due to all the students at UVa. Wonder if I would do better on eBay? No bites yet.

+1 this a nice but mass produced bike so there are several similar bikes for sale locally in pretty much every major market so shipping would just kill price on a bike worth less than $500.

Did it fall off one of the chainrings while you were shifting gears? If so, might just need a limit screw adjustment. The H and L screws on the front derailleur control the amount of outward and inward travel of the front derailleur cage. You want to set those tight enough so that the chain can still easily shift to the smallest and largest chainrings, but not past that point, otherwise the chain can derail. Less likely that the chain fell off the rear cluster, but that can happen too, in which case you set the H and L limit screws just like on the front derailleur.

If you get the shifters working so that all the gears can be shifting into with ease and no chain derailment, you're halfway there. Wheel true and brake adjustment, and that's your tune-up. Easily adds a bunch more to your sale price and is not difficult, plenty of youtube videos on the subject if you learn better by watching someone else.

Yes while changing gears and off the front derailleur. I really appreciate your help and will check out the youtube videos and give the adjustment a shot!

Yes and the one time I did ship a bike it was a pain getting the right box and breaking the bike down - since I hadn't done it before. Though I guess with experience that part gets better.
