Imcluding premium and tax, that's roughly $476 a bottle. Hell of a way to spend your dollars on a Sunday night. [winner.gif]

Just bought 1990 for just around $200, makes me feel real good. A case of auction fever gone awry.

I thought of this when I saw the topic name and wondered if Victor drank some. Interesting pricing.

Clearly a mistake. Someone is confused and embarrassed this morning. Same wine has sold multiple times this year in the $150-$160 range.

Btw it’s a beautiful wine. I served it at Thanksgiving a few years back.

Neither the first nor last time alcohol will negatively influence a WineBid experience.
