Now that WLTV is over and daily grape has taken over, its even more fun to mix up the episodes to get both styles of shows.
I think this emphasized why once you start drinking better wines, it’s tough to go out and buy cheap bottles under 10$ because you can certainly find interesting stuff and good QPRs but often you’ll be left with wines that are uninteresting.

    Oh and I forgot. Like everyone has their own taste(buds)in wines, I have to disagree with you on the Luna label. I prefer this one better!

    Gary – Great episode as usual.

    Just one thought – as the site grows more people will post and problems will likely come up. Egos with comments etc.. I’ve seen it on other boards where people attack people for just saying their simple viewpoint. Its good to address once, but please stay above the fray with the TV portion down the line.

    Its funny how everyone sees things differently. The main reason I love WLT is because you call it like you see it. Your facial expressions on some of the bad wines cracks me up.

    Has anyone had this 2004 Schild Shiraz?

    Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay VR ’05 (750 ML)
    SILVER MEDAL, 2006 CALIFORNIA STATE FAIR WINE COMP. A picture-perfect effort, the sophisticated and smooth ’05 Kendall-Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay basks in the glory that everyone enjoys it.

    Sorry to hear people are giving you a hard time for providing a free service to everyone. I’ve actually tried several of the sub-$10 wines you’ve been recommending and frankly they are surprisingly good. I doubt you’re make a fortune off recommending those wines… gotta love the cynics though… they keep us all honest.

    YES, in total agreement, the Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay is so over-oaked, felt like I was chewing on a 2×4, ptooey, wish I had seen this show first!

    Just like to mentioned that I’ve just completed the first 100 episodes of WLTV and and it is awesome. Found the site about a week ago and I’m going through the episodes systematically so hopefully I will manage to catch up with the current episodes. Really great show, I’m pretty much a wine dummy and I’ve learned so much the pass week. Can’t wait to view the rest…..

    Just a question, on this episode #99 the last wine tasted Silver Oak is not listed on the spreadsheet. Just curious is the ratings only for wines available is WL as the Silver Oak was listed as SOLD OUT.

    Real nice show today. Loved the pace.
    Loved the expression when you hit the Silver Oak wall.
    I used to drink the Frallian Central(Calif) Coast Chard., until
    (what I am told), they went out of business in mid 2009.
    Loved the Oak/Butter taste, and it was a pleasure to drink.
    Have not found a replacement to date, but even in view of your Kendall Jackson pan, I gotta give it a try this weekend.
