I know it’s whatever two parties agree on, but why does a wine store make good on broken or undelivered purchases and yet custom dictates that buyer takes risk on CC?

not sure I'd say the Moose transcended the vintage. 83 is a pretty good red vintage. Nice local store to have that! Don't know the Batard producer.
I always thought rot was an issue but it looks like Decanter rated it 4/5!
