It's only 9am and my credit card is working overtime

#1 Post by P_WythesJr »

Sojourn, Myriad and Saxum offers came out this morning. Is there some sort of condition where you just can't say "no"?

Making some very painful "delete" decisions today. Already done three, one of which I had specifically targeted for a "buy." One still left in the in box, Kutch.

I have no insights on them specifically in 18, however they are fantastic wines in an epic vintage.

Signed up for Occidental after seeing this. AG’s gushing praise for this vintage compelled me to place an order. Thanks Will.

AG just gave the Occidental SWK a 100pt score. Ended up pulling the trigger on my allocation with that well timed reminder email from Occidental that included AG's scores on the Spring Release.

Next up is Rivers Marie tomorrow morning.

So much for saving up before BD at the end of the month
