    Chris Stan – I’m jealous. I should have thought to make a spreadsheet of Gary’s picks! Doh! Good job, though, and thanks for doing it for us! Put me down for a copy!

    As to the color thing, I like a combination of several of the ideas. I can often get a good idea of the density and color of the wine when you swirl it, but I think that would be really accentuated if you backlit the wine against something white. How about a closeup of you swirling the wine in front of backlit white diffuser or a softbox (a diffuser is a tranluscent silk cloth, usually in a frame, used by photographers to soften a studio flash and remove the harsh shadows it gives off)? Use a daylight balanced light (5000 degrees Kelvin), like a studio light. Incandescent and flourescent will not give true color.

    Looks like no one picked the right score – except for the cheaters. Giving out any booby prizes for closest score?

    Gary the broadcast is alittle one dimentional. I mean your a good looking guy and all but its about the wine ,right? Please take a bit more time focusing on the actual focusing on the lables and keep the close up at least until the name caption is off. Alot of frames are wasted zooming out and in and even with you talking over the action( which works great), a nuance is lost. GREAT tv though. I’m no vidiographer but sell a few more bottles of Las Cases and use two or three cameras/switching. The ideas for color definition could all be tried.I enjoy being witness to any and all of your ground breaking video casts it what keeps you real,Thanks.

    Gary,

    Great episode, but this is the second episode in a row in which you committed infanticide. Couldn’t you at least open a 99 or 2000? That Leoville will be so much more awesome in a few years. For the the Albino Rocca Barbaresco, the early opening was deadly. I served a 1996 Albino Rocca at a dinner party a few weeks ago. It had all the characteristics you noted, but those rough edges had melted into beautiful tobacco and leather notes. Dry, yes, but wonderful with lamb, a mushroom and truffle pasta.

    Is the Buddha Bar run by the same folks as the one in Paris? I love the music and bought all the discs I could find. $35 for a drink is a bit much, though.

    Love the sign off!

    That sucks…I missed watching this on Thursday and I’m watching it on Saturday. The game is already done with, but I would have picked the Steelers (cause I picked them in my office pool), but I would have gotten the score wrong. I was expecting something like 21-10. But, it doesn’t matter now anyway. If I remember correctly, while watching it, I had one Budweiser and then about 3 bottles of water.

    I do have the Titans (with the +3) to beat your Jets on Sunday though. And my Bears to beat the Packers too. Nice.

    One thing about Leoville Las Cases: I’ve found that (for my own, personal taste) I do not like older Leoville. I don’t own any, but I attend a lot of tastings through work so I get to taste different vintages of LCC, and I’m not a fan of their older wines. I love older Bordeaux, but Leoville just doesn’t cut it for me. But, I had a 96 a while back at another tasting, and loved it. In fact, it was one of the highlights of the night for me.

    OK, see you later,
    Go Bears.

    I am going to go with my Steeeeeeelers 28 and the harpooned Fins 17. In fact, i think Joey Porter will close out the scoring with a INT returned for a TD! I will be drinking a great bargain I picked up at WL a few years ago… Hanging Rock Heathcote Shiraz. It is a fabulous bottle and wish I had more than the 5 bottles that remain in my cellar!

    Thanks, Gary

    Thanks for tasting the Leoville. I have every vintage from 1982 onward as I always buy 6 bottles on futures. My favorite wines of all times. First had the 1947 but I won’t be drinking them as I will be in Nashville this weekend with teetotalars. I’ll report back on the rabid Jets fans.
