Had my wine collection F'd by Ida. Eight days without power so the wine baked in 90+ degree heat. Have a bottle of '74 Heitz Cellars Mathra's Vineyard, a dozen Chateau Margaux and other 1990 Bordeaux's, a magnum of Diamond Creek, a magnum of Heitz Cellars... 110 bottles in total. Time to drink them I guess.

Did a little research and found out that Realm bought out Hartwell! I was a fan of Hartwell's cabs many years back. Interesting to find it got bought out

Tried this Caterwaul Cabernet just before I left for my work trip. Really stunning, deep dark red fruit with licorice and dark chocolate. Thankfully have a backup, but will need to find more when I get back home

Christmas specials at the wine store. If you consider $600 a special.

That Casillero Del Diablo in the back right was the wine my wife and I had on our first date 20-something years ago. I think it's a pretty good wine, especially for the price.

Something different. Nice bottle with a cork made of glass. (And a plastic seal)
Nice pre-dinner appetizer.

Dry and fruity. Light tasting and non-bubbly. Surprisingly high in alcohol at 13.5%. Not bad for the price with a 20% special Christmas discount.

Drink this often in the summer, while in the pool. Ice cold. Perfect for that, and the price can't be beat.

I have gotten this from Costco before...its surprisingly good for the low price point. Very nice. You can reuse those glass stoppers too...they fit most other bottles if you don't finish it in one sitting.

My wife's a pretty big fan of Paso and is a member of several wine clubs there. Her recommendation is Halter Ranch (Ancestor is good), Justin Isosceles or any of the reds by Linne Calado.
