Was in a little shop in Manhattan last night and they had Weller 12 for $250, 4R 130th for $500, 4R Elliot's for $400...

...and Parker's Heritage Wheated (8th ed iirc) for $130, which I would've snagged except how would I have gotten it home to socal today?

WTB 1948 Birthday Wine For Mom's 70th

I was wondering if anybody could give me some advice regarding the '48 vintage. My Mom isn't a wine addict like all of us here, but I thought it would be cool to maybe get a sticky that still has life in it (but won't cost $5,000).

Thank you in advance!

My Dad's 70th is 8/4 and I was thinking it would be cool to pop something from his birth year. Looking on WS is kind of a wild goose chase.

Does anybody have or know of anything somewhat drinkable from '46?
