I'm very busy selling, seeing as I've just moved and downsized. I may have to continue my Dehlinger buys, as its' two families involved, theirs and mine. Even though
I know that in the foreseeable future the wine will not accrue in value. What's most important?

I buy a lot of wine.
I actually buy way too much wine.
To resist the urge to buy is futile.
The one definite buy for me are the delicious Cabernets of Jean Edwards Cellars.
Their Sauvignon Blanc is pretty damn good too.

Quality over quantity
Age over youth
As an aside--and sorry to drift off topic a bit--when I think about the wine market and whether prices can continue to stay strong or even increase, I always think this is a source of upward pressure that people forget about: rationalizing quantity of purchasing and even consumption. One way wine can keep getting more expensive is that collectors move from an approach where they have lots of excess bottles in their cellars to one where they try to buy closer to the number of bottles they will actually drink. That can create a lot of additional budget for a given wine. I'm certainly going that way myself.

Very little new stuff. I’ve dropped off most lists. I’ll definitely buy my Detert allocation.

Other than that, I’ll do a little back filling when the opportunity arises.
