I'm preparing for our trip to Niagara tomorrow, and I'm checking my bank account to see how much wine I can afford to buy. Turns out after the 2005 Bordeaux Futures payments, and then the Glenfarclas Collection payment, and then the Pol Roger, I'll have exactly $28 left to spend on wine. Nice.

Today, I'm heading out to Fairview Mall's LCBO to pick up a bottle of 1998 Pol Roger Brut Rose Champagne. I really love Pol Roger and I'd kill myself if they all sold out. $88.20.

My bottle of Glenfarclas scotch should be arriving sometime at the end of the month, or early March. It's a bottle of 1986 vintage scotch, just bottled last year, very rare and very special. $390.

My 2005 Bordeaux Futures are arriving in mid to late April. I have 24 bottles coming in, from 6 estates. They are:

Ch. La Lagune
Ch. L'Arrosee
Ch. Coutet
Ch. Rauzan Gassies
Ch. Carbonnieux
Ch. Haut Bergey

Total cost: too depressing to mention.

Between the LCBO and UW tuition, I'm totally wiped out. I mean really, just emptied. My tax return can't arrive soon enough.
