Seen this thread on plenty of other forums, so what not here. What have you bought today? Cheers! -mJ
I'll start. I bought a case of Havens Bourriquot from Wine Library a week or so ago and opened a bottle last evening. Its a 92 point Napa blend. Apparently the producer is going out of business so WL is selling the fifty buck juice for $20. Ordered another case today. I think its that good.
2008 Rivers-Marie Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir x 3
2008 Rivers-Marie Occidental Ridge Vineyard Pinot Noir x 3
2008 Rivers-Marie Summa Vineyard Pinot Noir x 3
2008 Rivers-Marie Summa Old Vines Pinot Noir x 3
2008 Rivers-Marie Theriot chardonnay x 2
With in the last two weeks:
1 case 2006 Havens Merlot
1 case 2005 Trailblazer NC Syrah
mixed case 2005 Basel Cellers Syrah & Merriment
3 2006 Balboa Winery "Salyulita"
1 2007 Vietti Barbara d'Asti Tre Vigne
1 2004 Ch. Lanessan Haut-Medoc
1 2008 Deboeuf Morgan
1 2008 Deboeuf Chirobles
1 2007 Castello di Querceto Chianti Classico
1 2007 Vitiano Rosso
For me, and considering my advanced age, I am buying many more "ready to drink," or "early aging" wines. I still have enough that will likely peak years after my death, so I am looking "closer to home." Now, that is just me.
