    You should have some Rage Against the Machine playing in the background of this episode. I love the passion!

    Gary,

    This will date me but just as ol’ “What’s his name” said, “We will serve no wine before it’s time.” We (your relatively new customers from Connecticut) will follow no wine critic who sells out to industry or mainstream media pressure. You haven’t. Well done. And we’ll be back.

    I love pissed off and fired up Gary V!!!!!
    I have had the Jester before and it was maybe 84……just too over the top.
    Rosemount…..word on that buddy. Too many people spend way too much money on shitty wine like that.

    Ok so watching these straight through – this is the beginning of the new WLTV. Gary’s energy has picked up – the character that we all know and love in Gary is starting to shine through – what got into you Gary? I think the idea that a 7 minute episode is long is funny. Boy do would those exec’s be pissed now. Or maybe WLTV will have another big change soon – who knows?

    Yay GV for keepin it real!!!!! I’m so glad you didn’t go into syndication and could keep you’re unique tasting notes (“well this doesn’t suck”) on the table! I can’t imagine how many constraints there’d be if you went with the big wigs!

    And I think this episode is the cusp of the Gary to come, the one who tells us those painting-like descriptions of wine! Thanks GV, I’m so glad you stayed with vlogs. :)

    Wow, this has to be a seminal episode. I’ve been going through the archives, one at a time from the beginning. This one rocks. I love pissed off and hardcore Gary. I imagine it was a tough decision at the time Gary, and I am so glad you stuck to your guns and flipped off the Man. Way to go. This is what folks like me need and crave. Enough of the elitist BS. We need honest, real advice. If something sucks and there’s something better, I want to hear it. Keep up the great work Gary and thank you!!!

    Could not agree with you more Gary about the Rosemount. I don’t want to offend anyone, but Rosemount and those other mass marketed wines are a waste of time. The price you pay for those is not the quality of the wine, but the money they spend to mass-market that crap. There are far to many wines out there at that price or cheaper, which are way better values. Including that fruit driven, easy drinking style, and the more terroir driven, boutique style of wines from small producers. Surprised anyone would have wanted you to do a tasting on a wine like that. You can just google any of those mass marketed wines and get 1,000 reviews on them. I come to you because you turn us on to the good wines and good values out there that you don’t here about at other places. Stuff that’s not gonna have 1000 sites come up with info on it, like those silly wines such as Rosemount.
    Which is why I really hope you get around to doing a charbono or vin jaune tasting. Very different wines, but underdogs in their own way.

    Hey Gary

    Fantastic to watch this old episode that was obviously a turning point. I was thinking that the early editions of WLTV were a little soft. Looking back in hindsight it’s obvious you made the right decision. Fantastic.

    Oh and I agree about the Rosemont – worst winery in Australia!

    Cheers

    Well time told that doing your thing was a really good choice! I would just add that if you bash a winery that makes many levels of wine, narrow the critisium to that particular brand within the brand, keeps it more real. I have had the Jester and did not like it also. http://www.winelx.com

    Gary,

    This is why we like you and follow WLTV, on top of teaching us about wine, you do your own thing and don’t let the corporate ******** tell you what to do.
