I have put the brakes on and hid the Amex for December as Nov was very expensive for me as I bought approx 6-7 cases of assorted wines.
The only fairly expensive purchases for December so far are 6 x 1998 Bosquet des Papes CDP ($49.00 CDN) and a few 2000 Beaucastel CDP mags ($135 CDN). Hopefully nothing else will be of interest for the remainder of the year.
I will be buying holiday/party/gift wines to be consumed by and/or given to friends/family which include 2000 Diamond Creek Merlot ($16 CDN), 2001 J&F Lurton Malbec (#13 CDN), 2001 Von Kesselstatt Riesling Kabinett ($22.00 CDN) and Seaview Brut ($10.00 CDN).
Christmas presents for the kids or wine...... hmmmmm
