some savage deals in there although I spotted that he slipped an Argentinian Malbec in there but I'll leave him off since its not Chilean and it is called Judas Iscariot - Im expecting red molasses to eventually pour out after Ive held it upside down

have you hit Durty Gary up recently?
i got some nice chateauneuf du pape in for christmas.

a guy in the mrs' office bids on wines at auctions. he sent me a spreadsheet, big wines in the $100 range, he puts in low ball offers at $30 a bottle and it sometimes hits. i told him to count me in for a random case so will see how that goes.

sounds like a plan - where are the wines sourced for the auction?

I know someone that buys a lot at auction as they are mad for really aged stuff - problem is that the whole thing is so hit and miss since most of the lots come from cellars when people die etc so you have no guarantee of how they have been stored.
