Tell me about Futures

rjp | Oct 20, 2007 06:59 AM

My son was born in 2005, and since we all like to drink wine and it was a good year I bought futures. (We cook at home a lot, dad is Italian, we generally drink wine -- Fr or It mostly -- with dinner and don't have the income to spend much on it -- around $11 bottle on average in well-priced NYC stores). So I went out and dropped a good bit on four cases. I figured it will be nice to drink from his birth year in the years to come, and I tried to select wines that were likely to last a long while.
I used the wine books I had along with the sparse notes that the merchant (sherry lehman) provided and price to guide me. Anyone want to educate me about how I could have chosen more wisely?
Many thanks.
