Re: Wedding Wine Thoughts?

Very nice lineup. Congratulations and best wishes.

My thoughts, don't be in a rush to open all those bottles or you might have a lot of leftover open bottles.

Enjoy Kirk.

Re: Monthly check-in: Cellar inventory reduction plan

My commitment was to reduce the size of my EMH Black Cat Library. I have done a pretty good job of that: have sold some of my 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2009, 2009 Special Selection.

I do not think spirits are legal in BYOW restaurants in NJ. They were not BYOB when I lived there.
You are correct. Some enforce that rule. Many don’t, just don’t try to mix cocktails.

Where do you live?

This thread was started in 2015. Not sure what WL is up to these days with shipping but it's getting tougher to ship to many states from a retailer, so it might not be worth it.
Yes, definitely look into shipping to your area before purchasing.
