    Man I hate having to leave a 3rd comment on 1 episode, but I just noticed the comment by Davivcanada. He had the Cask 23 97 vintage as well and loved it. I recommend you try that 1 Gary.

    QOTD: Let’s just say it involved way too much wine, an ex-girlfriend’d motehrs 50th birthday party and a couple of shattered bottles. Oh the memories…

    Cheers

    Thanks for Wine Library TV, Gary. It's a big help, and always entertaining.

    Glad to here your impressions on the Far Niente. There's a bottle sitting on the shelf at our shop that I now know not to push on my customers. Appreciate your integri

    I think Cakebread, Jordan are very overrated, had a 2000 Stags Leap Cask 23 and it was awesome, one thing that Gary does not mention enough is that even the best wine name can have a bad yr due to growing conditions etc. QOTD-went to a Caldwell wine tasting dinner and had great wine and food, made friends, invited them back to home and my girlfriend..now ex decided to open a mag of Insignia that had 5-10 yrs to go before we should of opened it and these new friends (not for long) did not like it (maybe because they had never tasted a bottle worth more than $10 and it was too young to drink) and asked us to open something esle.. http://www.winelx.com

    QOTD: I don't know if this is funny or just embarassing. I was at a Moet-Henessey tasting in St. Loius. I was there tasting for my job as a buyer and I brought my ex-girlfriend. She got drunk pretty quickly and when we went to the Krug champagne table she couldn't hold her glass still enough to get a pour. The guy from Krug ended up pouring his $200+ champagne all over the table. He was pretty nice about it though.
