Are we having fun yet? What did you buy?

Often the most expensive day for a Wine Berserker, whereby the deals from wineries and retailers fill the forum and make your credit cards scream for mercy...

In for Nicora, Campesino and a Tercero case at this point, though I doubt that's the end of it.

EMH Black Cat, Calluna, Cellars33, Jean Edwards and Rasa! Having a good time, getting time to start the beef stew, pour a glass and see if any unexpected offers come up, like the Jemrose (not on the donor list?)

uh... Alpha Omega, Chester's Anvil, EMH Black Cat, Guilliams Vineyards, Jean Edwards, Kapcsandy, Keating, Match and Sojourn blush

Fortunately, I had the prescience to get my wife a new car for the holidays, so I am temporarily safe (from bodily harm). Hopefully, I can enjoy these wines in between my shifts at my second and third jobs ...

Jean Edwards. I'm also buying the Patricia Green and/or Windy Oaks PN and that's it. Already grabbed the Halcon new releases on pre-release email. Wife's going to murder me slowly.

Already purchased
Campasino 3 pack
EMH 2 pack
Keating 3 pack Zin
Ladd 6 pack
Lagier Meredith 4 pack
Costa Rica Coffee

That offer sheet from Panzer could bring on bankruptcy if I spend some time reviewing the offers.
Cabot PN's are a likely buy.
Match Magnums could be dangerous to the CC.

Glad to see the Nicora offer so well recieved. Passed due to my large Paso inventory, but will be visiting.

Well the ice and snow have just started to hit downtown Chicago. So good time to buy wine.

Spent the week and weekend updating my wine in CellarTracker. Also got offsite storage, so moved several cases. Now updating more items in CellarTracker. Bad part of this - my wife saw how much wine we have, so my purchases today have to be limited.
