How would you have liked getting these deals???

1. 2007 Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese (Germany, Mosel Saar Ruwer) for

$7 a bottle? Currently a 750 ml is selling for $60.

2. 2012 Kaesler Avignon (https://www.cellartracker.com/wine.asp?iWine=2130089) - Australia, South Australia, Barossa, Barossa Valley (2/10/2018)
Day 1: Opened for about 3 hours. Nice Garrique, red currants, subtle spices and pine tar. This drinks more like a CDP than any other Aussie Grenache Blend I have ever tasted. An absolutely stunning value (won't tell you what I paid for it). An early candidate for QPR of the year and will be hard to beat. Will be interested to see what this does on day 2 and 3.
Day 2: Still singing with similarities to day 1. Very intense wine with tons of flavors complexity. Long finish. A true find. Wow!!! 93 points (93 points)

$14 locally. Some still left in town for under $16. National price $35 plus.

3. 2014 Buena Vista Cabernet Sauvignon Chateau Buena Vista (https://www.cellartracker.com/wine.asp?iWine=2791542) - USA, California, Napa Valley (1/30/2018)
Day 1: Lighter in color. Nose offers toasted oak, plum, cherry and coffee beans. On the palate good use of oak and fruits and apparent and pleasing. Very balanced overall and even though it is a 2014 don't hesitate to pop and pour. I will see where this wine goes on day 2 and 3. Should be interesting.
Day 2: Nice fruits on the nose. Oak, spices, coffee beans and rose petals. On the finish picks up a crushed rock quality. Medium plus finish and an excellent value. This is even better than day 1. 93 points.
Day 3: Even better with menthol, toasted oak, spices, dark currants and crushed rock. For concentrated effort and what an amazing value. The evolution of this wine over three days is quite remarkable. Why more people don't see the evolution of younger wines over the course of time is mind blowing. 94 plus!!! (94 points)

$31 locally. National price $40 plus.

Cost: $35 one time fee.
