For the cellar:
1998 Steele Zinfandel DuPratt Vineyard Mendocino Ridge, $16 [I couldn't resist buying this... am thinking of opening it tonight to share with Mark, John, Dan, and rest of the whole ANTM krewe]
2004 Grosset Polish Hill riesling, $28 [Half a case (the entire stock received by Pete's); impulse buy... this is Australia's best riesling by far, and I'm a sucker for it. Will age it for a decade before drinking, most likely]
NV Scharffenberger Brut, $14 [Half a case; Pacific Echo sold off their property but not their name; it was, I think, taken over by the Roederer Estate folks, and this is their first release... I'm hoping it's as good as PE but with that special Roederer acidity I love so much]
? Barossa sparkling shiraz, $25 [two bottles; I forgot what this stuff is already... it's nothing I recognized, but I've been jonesing for a good sparkling red wine for a while. The $16 Vixen is just OK, but not great; the Yalumba D Black at $35 is of course incredibly wonderful, but it's a wee bit too expensive for me]
2002 Ridge Geyserville, $30 [three bottles; this is hands down my favorite California wine... but it needs ageing, so into the cellar it goes until about 2010]
For upstairs: Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Newcastle Brown Ale, and Pilsner Urquell. For you Seattle area beer lovers, go to Pete's in Bellevue - they have all of these beers and more for somewhere around $12 a twelve pack. This is amazingly cheap for Washington state; it's several dollars less than Safeway, plus the guys at Pete's are super cool. Oh, and they have those fancy Italian citrus sodas for only 62¢ a can. Score!
You may note that I didn't buy the malbec. Oops. I was kinda distracted by the bargain bin with the 2003 Leasingham Bin 6 riesling... and then the discount beer... and then the Grosset wines... and, well, I screwed up. Sorry, Marmot!
