I migrated from a fridge to a built in room last year. It was a significant investment (properly done) but worth it, IMO. So, to answer the question: Fridge, definitely yes. I've been buying and holding wine way too long to gamble with anything less than impeccable storage. It has dramatically changed my opinion on the longevity of certain wines.

It's good to know what you like, and to enjoy it. Given this penchant, I'd also encourage you to try drinking cafe con leche with cigars. For vintage cigars I usually stay away from coffee (green tea, sparkling water, or champagne pair well), but with more robust cigars, rum, whiskey, and coffee are tried and true.

Nice bag.
Received a Cohiba pyramid from the jar as a gift this weekend when up in Napa at tastings this weekend. Looking forward to reporting back on it.
