Not to be meant as a measuring contest.
I know the summer heat does not curtail the thrill of the hunt. This being the most I ever had on the line: 74
I am excited. My FEDEX and UPS guys might not be. A bottle or two of wine as a tip each should suffice.
Some good stuff too.

I’ve been drinking down the cellar. It’s looking lean these days so Im looking forward to shipping season. A handful of can’t waits - The Schrader variety pack, Saxum, Lillian Blue Labels, my first Cayuse shipment, PC’s got my 07 CdPs in, buckets of Carlisle and Turley. Going to be a good winter indeed!
A truckload of stuff from Envoyer, including burgs (mostly white and a few reds), rose, champagne, Arcadian, cru boo. From here it continues to get uglier with Rhys, Ceritas, Arcadian, Bedrock, Carlisle, R-M & Rudius. 13 cases in all. Glad to see I followed through on my goal to cut back significantly this year. The really bad thing is that all this wine is being delivered to my wife’s work since I am unable to receive shipments. I guess I will test the theory that it is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. This stuff should all be arriving right about the time we will be celebrating our 25th anniversary. Maybe I can use that as the excuse…anniversary presents. Yeah, that’s it.
