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

Dunn is your kryponite.

Especially '87. Even if it is only the Napa Valley.

But having said that, prior to these two bottles the last Dunn I bought was in August 2018.

Also bought 2017 Little Wings x 3.  Jorge still has this...buy 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.

Been a while since Ive had to hang my head in shame. Picked up my annual case of Dehlinger Rose of Pinot Noir but that doesnt count as I dont put them into inventory does it?

Too much free time...being wasted looking at Winebid. Picked these up this past Sunday:

2015 Peay La Bruma Syrah

2014 Rocca Family Grigsby Vineyard Cab X 3

Good news was that they were both 30$ a bottle (before premium/tax).  Got nothing but time to look for some deals.  

Got lucky to be invited to participate in a COVID-19 fire sale:
 
1999 Salon
2006 Dom Perignon
2015 DRC La Tache
2016 DRC La Tache
 
 

12 X 2017 Valdesil Valdeorra Mencia

mixed case of Spanish wines from Cosecha (not sure what's in it til they arrive).

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. 

Entering a moratorium. Got news yesterday about several large customers at work backing out of and/or pushing out orders, as well as several shuttering for a few weeks. Going into some sketchy times.

Got my mystery 4-pack Oregon Pinot from Garagiste today. Had to have it shipped, because they aren't opening for pickup on Saturdays right now.  Anyway, purchased before the sky fell. 

Turned out to be a 2014 Ken Wright Cellars horizontal from: Bryce, Guadalupe, Tanager, and Freedom Hill vineyards.

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.
