Well the plan was to have four wines picked by the WLTV viewers, it didn’t work out that way. So we picked four other wines. Tune in today and see what happened. Also a new QOD.

    QOD: Not India. I just don’t like the Indian palate that’s all. I don’t like Indian food, desserts, etc. HOWEVER, if you could simply get a winemaker from another country to go there I think the terrior is diverse enough to kick rear. Otherwise, China’s got the upperhand to me personally because of simple palate issues. I know no one who HATES Chinese food (especially the authentic stuff not that American garbage). Indian food on the other hand can be an acquired taste.

    QOTD: Two words- Dragon Red. But, in ten years I can’t wait to see what they have to offer.

    Two Buck Chuck, so that’s what it is…..

    QOTD (the real one) – China, since I have a bottle in the cellar already and can’t see getting hold of an Indian before I drink it.
    QOTD (the other one) – Stephen Hawkins

    I’ve had the Chateau Larose Trintaudon Medoc and thought it was gross too!

    QOTD: I’ve had great wall wine from China. Not ALL that bad… not all that worse than a bottle of Chuck!

    qotd: Omar Kayyam, the sparkling from India, no contest.
    That was a great spoof at the end.
    Hey Gary, got a question you’ve probably never heard before. Will you do a vin jaune episode, and how about one on tasting different charbono’s?

    QOD: There are many vineyards and wine companies in China today: Great Wall, Dynasty (a joint venture with Remy Martin), Changyu, Grace Vineyard, & Huadong, just to name a few. I believe Dynasty has won 14 gold medals in international wine tastings, for what it?s worth.

    The Chinese prefer red wine over white, thus cabernet sauvignon is the favorite varietal here, taking up most of the shelf space at the local supermarkets.

    Speaking from personal experience , the Chinese cabernets are not half bad, and the cost is a fraction of the Napa Valley prices, so if you?re looking for value, this is something to consider.

    Gary, have you done an episode with a taste-off between China and India? I?m curious to see the results.

    Thank god for David Ramey. WLTV might have ended right here at epi #105 with GV ending it all.
    While in BC at Gotham, had a recommended by staff Ramey Claret which was phenomenal. Have never found it since. Not in stores, not online. Is it available? Was it a fever dream?

  • corkscrew

    Rosenblum's higher end Zins are good, Ramey is a no brainer. Great video..can he fill in for you a few days a week? Just kidding.. QOTD-China, like their food better than Inidian. http://www.winelx.com

    Great spoof by TimF, although i think he went a little high on the Merlot :P

    Ok episode, thank god the Ramey showed well, otherwise we might not have seen episode 106. Have had the Trintaudon and i must agree, it’s bollocks! :)
