lst nt by myself at pitch-dark #momofuku ssam bar stalking pork buns and a cheap, interesting bottle of #wine. Tried 'Schlossgut Diel Cuvee MO '95' liking its cuvee initials and thinking it a fair $45. Bill came, it was actually $145! Holy ice buckets!--my bad. Saving grace: it was gorgeously complex, exciting Pinot Noir/Gris bubbly fr Germany. The best German 'sekt' (sparkling wine) I've had. Worth the extra "1"...I guess.
