    Getting around to the well regarded Chateau through the second bottles recently. Found the Ridge Estate magnum for $120 this weekend which seemed like a steal. Pardon the dark photos.

    That wine is pushed fairly heavily on Full Pull, and it just doesnt do it for me, for whatever reason. Idk, maybe I just dont like/appreciate Barbaresco.

    This is all good advice. The only thing I would add is relating to drinking window management. As you begin to accumulate, and eventually go down the line, you don't want to have a doughnut hole of time where you have nothing "ready" to drink. So I would try and be cognizant of staggering the aging life of things you collect. Obviously it also depends on how developed you like wines to taste as well. Also, I would avoid buying in ones and twos. You really want to get at least 3 or 4 bottles of each wine per vintage so that you can actually perceive its evolution over time. At least for me, that is one of the most satisfying aspects of cellaring.

    Anyone see the class action against WTSO for unfair pricing of wine that wasn't sold anywhere else, but advertised best web price and then undercut?

    Haven’t had a South American in years. Wife brought it home.
