2010 - What are you buying?

Seen this thread on plenty of other forums, so what not here. What have you bought today? Cheers! -mJ

  1. 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.

      Speaking of Havens, I bought a case of the liquidated Merlot for $6.99 a bottle from K&L.

        Yes i have that. It is very good and you got it for a steal!

          Spencer Daniels (formerly Bargain Bank) in SF has more liquidated Havens Merlot & Syrah:

          I bought the '02 & '05 Merlot, and tried the '04 Syrah (375 ml for $2.99). All were solid and storage for the older wines appeared OK.

    2. Anything 90 points or above, it's the only stuff that's worth drinking.

        So glad that I noticed the parentheses there. I had to do a double-take for your name, and the comment. Then, I read down a bit. [Grin]

          1. 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.
