What is on your wine wish list this holiday season?

Mine continues to be wanting more half bottles available for champagne. Imagine Salon in a cute little 375ml. I would love it! :)

What is on your wish list?

I don't expect or seek wine for xmas, but there have been some decent surprises over the years.

Stuff that I'll go and buy anyway include more halves, more spatlese & kabinett rieslings, mature wines, Valle d'Aosta wines, Isole e Olena Syrah, Castel del Monte, Julienas, ... always something that's either a gaping hole in the cellar, or where I feel it's under-represented.

I got True Love a Kindle Fire and she got me a mixed case with 25% off and free shipping on Cyber Monday!

I always ask for wine glasses as they're an easy gift once you specify the model/make (no stylistic judgment decisions like clothes) and I can always use more since a couple break every year.

I'm with Rahsaan - wine glasses. I have several, but not enough of any one type/style to properly set a table.
