Must have been offered at least a dozen allocations in the past couple of months and passed on every one of them , except Clos Solene (Paso Robles).  I'm a sucker for a good Northern Rhone style blend.

Your roommates in the retirement community will appreciate you sharing. 

I know. This is my limit vintage for these wines. In 20 years I'll still be under 70 so I hope I'll still have a functioning liver

Among the goodies:

I too got in on some of that Amarone - have you popped one yet?

Not yet. I like to let it age a few more years. I popped a 2000 Barolo a few months back that took my breath away. Wish I could remember what it was.

Good call. That 2016 chard is delicious.  Served it at my rehearsal dinner (the Element folks catered our wedding).   

Went on a bit of a value spree at a local shop. Ended buying two of each, and I think all of them were around 20$ a pop (except for the Rioja which was 35$):

2016 Marietta Arme Cabernet---already had this...pretty delicious for the price.

Found a guy with a nice wine cabinet in his garage that he doesnt use as his wife stopped drinking wine. Has a Ferrari and custom Porsche in garage also. He needs more room for cars, I need more room for wine. He just wants it gone and is giving it to me. Bottle Capacity is about 200. My 440 bottle cabinet somehow has over 500 in it. That free wine cabinet is gonna cost me a fortune

I bought 6 of these a few months ago and opened the first one last night. I immediately went online and snapped up the remaining 8 bottles available in the USA. (A few retailers have the 2017.)

Elegant, clean and pure, lifted, delicious. And hard to come by, with a production of only 900 bottles.

A house. To be specific, the house my father-in-law built in the mid-50’s and that my wife and her siblings all grew up in. Her mom lived there until her passing in 2017. It sat in a trust since, and this spring my wife and I decided to buy it and keep it in the family. We closed today. There is a lot of reno to be done in stages, and we have two other places to sell. That said we’re happy to have finally decided where our permanent residence will be. It’s a very modest sized ranch but with a full basement and a windowless room that was once a fruit cellar. It will be one again, in a sense.  It is also in a great town with tree-lined streets, a train station, good restaurants, a nice independent wine store, coffee shops, brewpub and a kitchen store with cooking classes - all within easy walking distance. It will be an interesting journey but really looking forward to being able to entertain there at some point.

Oh so that was you? Good price.

Yup it was. The advantage of no shipping charges. FWIW the price was just OK. You can get the at the winery with perfect provenance for not much more. You just have to go to the winery or know someone who does. I'm planning on a trip hopefully in January and could swing by to grab whatever from them. Would just need to figure out shipping

I'm not buying much in the way of recent vintages anymore, as I won't be around long enough to enjoy them.  So, I am picking up older vintages of French, Spanish, and Italian wines.

You're healthier than me and I'm your junior.  Such crazy talk.

Although I get your point.  I've been pondering when to quit buying period.  With right around a 1,000 bottles in the cellar and typically only consume maybe 100 a year I have quite the back log of inventory and not getting any younger as the saying goes.

My Tablas Creek order came yesterday - full case of assorted stuff including a couple bottles of 2011 Espirit.  My Kutch order should be here tomorrow.

My Tablas Creek came two weeks ago.  Somehow I missed buying 2016 so I got a full case of 3 x 2016 Blanc and Rouge Espirit, 3 x 2017 same.

That's a mere 10-yr supply!  You better stock up! 

Saw a random FB for sale post selling a small wine fridge and some "fancy" wines. Recognized some labels and asked for a list. Went right over after I saw the list and picked it all up for $400 as storage and condition appeared very good. When I asked why she was selling, she said her husband didnt drink any more. As i was leaving she said he'll probably cry when he gets home so maybe she wouldnt tell him. I think thats a good decision. He may kill her if only for the last one on the list.
