Re: POLL: What is the most expensive bottle of wine in your cellar?

I own wine 150 and under but I recently joined the Realm list and ridge monte bello futures list so the realm prices will be over 200. This thread made me feel guilty about purchasing these more expensive wines. Should I cancel my Realm list and not bother with these 200 plus napa cabs? No. Pour on...

If it gets drunk too early so be it. It’s wine.

From. The problem with that was they made the "bottle" non see-through so you never knew what was in it. Hearty Burgundy was a better buy.
