Various rieslings and pinots from Forge in the Finger Lakes (project in which Louis Barroul from Chateau St. Cosme has invested and is an active participant).

2013 Element Winery Pinot Noir Niagara Escarpment - was shocked at how good this was, even if it was a tad overpriced

2018 Clos de la Roilette Felurie Tardive

2015 Roger Sabon CdP Cuvee Reserve x 2

2014 Ferraton pere et fils St Joseph La Source

2009 Vignerons de Caractere Vacqueyras Cuvee Prestige...I bought a couple of bottles o=f this at the winery years back.  Amazed to see it on auction.

For wine geeks, 2015 seems to be a great year to be born, to be wed or to birth children.  As it stands, i'll take 1970, 2004, 2009 & 2011.

Also bought 2017 Little Wings x 3.  Jorge still has up if you got the offer and didn't pony up.   I brought a bottle of the 2015 on a camping trip a couple of weeks back and it was fantastic around the camp fire.

In other words, my sub $65 (and in most cases $50 or under) Coronavirus survival pack. 

One positive about the border shutdown: I have no interest in ordering wine from US retailers when I don’t know when or if I’ll be able to get to Lewiston to pick them up. I already have 36 bottles waiting there and and equal number waiting to be shipped from California.

I bought five cellar defender bottles at the LCBO about 10 days ago. Other than that, I’ve been doing really well with the moratorium. 

I decided to reload on a mixed case of some QPR’s that my wife and I both enjoy, since we are making dinner at home every night and opening more bottles. 

3 x 2015 J. Boulon Moulin. Vent

3 x 2016 J. Boulon Brouilly

3 x Pecchenino Dogliani San Luigo

3 x 2019 Allan Scott Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc - IMO not the 93 that WS gave it but nice for what it is and a great value.
