Holy hell thats a lot! I’ve been making a concerted effort to halt spending in 2019 (budget + out of storage) so I’m happy to be a little under two cases. Mostly a garagiste accumulation that I forgot about.

19 bottles here. More than I thought before I added it up.
Ripe fruit isn't necessarily a flaw.

I guess I should have put this in the 'Young and Spendy, Don't Stop Me Now' thread. I thought this was Berserkers?

Then, in the fall, I am pleasantly surprised by all the 'free' wine arriving!

Having just got back from our annual pilgrimage to Willamette Valley we have 4 to 5 cases coming from there. Add in the two cases of Bedrock I just finished ordering, the 2 cases of Scherrer zin futures and the 1/2 case of Carlisle, I have about 90 in my "pending deliveries" bin.

I shared this thread with the wife. Somehow she wasn’t convinced to let me buy more based solely on the fact that some people have more pending than our whole cellar. Either we don’t buy enough or we drink too fast, regardless I shall do my part to lighten our bank account!

By the 'what are you buying' thread, I had you pegged for at least a marquis. I guess it's quality over quantity. 56 mags is impressive though!

Almost exactly a hundred (with a slight variable from Bedrock/Carlisle wish lists).

Add to that I went to a wine tasting last week organized by a local store and ordered three cases. Hoping these will keep me going until the next viable Memphis delivery window.

Hey, if you are drinking more than you buy I think you are doing it correctly. I need to learn to do that.

He is from the River Aire in the Yorkshire Dales. His name is Rye (short for Sir Templeton Rye and I'm a bit embarrassed that I named him after a MGP Distillery of Indiana whiskey brand; but fancy dogs need fancy names.) He is of the 2010 vintage and has a strong aromas full of p-mentha-8-thiol-3-one and acetic acid (i.e. piss and vinegar). My car often seems to smell like Brett too.

Wow! Such a young king too. Hopefully you have an office, off-site, or another castle you can ship them to and not the home as we all are hoping you continue to be known in the domestic kingdom as Ryan the Benevolent and aren't put on trial for treason. Regicide by the queen is a bad way to go. Did you see this thread!

Not to rain on anyone's parade but getting a couple dozen shipping boxes grosses me out. A couple years back I received about that many in a week during the fall shipping window and looking at all the boxes and inserts made me feel shitty. Luckily, I have a local friend who is an importer and can recycle the boxes to send out samples to his customers but I still felt icky about it.

In addition to the shipping boxes, there are bottles with the corks half soaked and other issues. If I had bought them locally, I'd take them back, but there generally isn't that kind of recourse with many of these online stores. I also steer clear from grey market sources because of highly variable results.

Depending on where you live, do you really need to buy from all over the country? If you supported a good local store, you might be surprised at what you could be able to do. I live in NC and have just accepted that I can't get everything and to mostly source from local stores. I'm not perfect, I do participate in HDH auctions and sometimes can't resist the charms of bottles from Chambers or a couple others I have a long relationship with.

I also sort of like the idea of having a cellar that is "look what I was able to put together in NC". As I said, if you develop a good local relationship you might be surprised at what they are able to find. Importers have to allocate most wines to all markets, not just the coasts. I'm also reminded of a dinner at a longtime ITBers house. He worked in wholesale for several companies across 30 years. He loved wine, but wasn't obsessive. His cellar was full of bottles that he picked up along the way from the places he worked. I found the unexpected and organic nature of it really cool and that's what I'm trying to do now.
ITB-ish.
