    Hi Gary,

    Look forward to the Chicago Super Tasting, remember to keep me in mind if you need help with anything!

    We currently have about 70 bottles as storage is an issue. But we do have a very nice mix. Italian, Spanish, Chilean, SA, New Zealand, French, Oregon…even a few CA….I have a 57 bottle cooler but looking to buy a Vinotemp 400-450 bottle unit.

    How about some more info about you? Are you married? Kids?

    Take care,

    Bruce

    Jaye,
    Nice collection especially the Germans. Big riesling fan, especially German. Hqve you tried the Carl Schmitt-Wagner -Longuicher Maximiner Herrenberg. Real nice and WL has it at a grat price but haven’t tasted this vintage. The Dr Loosen/Chateau Ste Michelle – Eroica is real nice. Gets consistant high ratings as well.

    Somewhere in the 950 bottle range. 1/2 Burgundy (evenly split between red and white). Fifteen cases of Bordeaux (some 2000, 2001, 2002s) with a handful of 98s thrown in. A lot of Rhones, some northern and a lot of Chateauneuf, (1998, 1999, 2001s) with a few other years thrown in (1989, 90, 93, 96). Some German rieslings, some Italian reds, a couple of cases of stickies. That is why I drive a $500 car with 230,000 miles on it. Totally worth the trade off. The way I see it, a $30,000 car will be worth $3,000 fifteen years from now (or less if it is English). Whereas I will be just settling in to enjoy the fruits of my patience on something that is now worth two or three times that. A no brainer. Besides, I know where I’ll be if the big one hits…and it won’t be in my car!

    Gary,

    For a excellent California wine, please try the Amizetta Merlot 1998 on WLTV.

    As far as wines from either India, or China,,,, I’ll try them when they make a better Mercedes Benz, Porsche, or LX470.

    But I only have one life,,,, can’t wait too long.

    Unless I get too drunk on some good wines from: California, France, Italy, Spain, Australia, Portugal, Chile, Argentina, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Lebanon, New Zeland, Bosnia, ,,,, so on, and then if Alzheimer doesn’t kick in, I’ll try wines from India and China (NOT).

    Order a Diet Water whenever you go out to eat with a serious face

    Cheers

    Thanks for the peak into your cellar, Tony. It’s always fun to see what other people are drinking. We have several of the same bottles. You should check out cellartracker.com as a place to keep your inventory. It is an amazing site, and really makes it easy to keep things organized, copy and paste in the WA, IWC and WS reviews, see other users’ notes on a wine, etc.

    QOD: 254 bottles of 152 different wines.

  • Miguelo DiMarco

    I currently have 15 bottles of wine (all Italiano, of course!), plus one 1/2 bottle of Banfi Rosa Regale which, in my experience, is the preferred choice of women who are not big drinkers (a future Q.O.D.?).

    And what about the Italian values? It’s hard to confine the selection to one area of Italy, but every area makes some good inexpensive stuff, so I say ‘all of Italy’ is an area of good values, after all, the comparison was California which is larger than all of Italia.

    The tasting looks like it was a blast. Unfortunately, I live on the West Coast which is at least good for saving a dollar on my Charles Shaw purchases!

    Gary,

    Loved the super tasting…agree with the comment on loving the Tempranillo table. You should taste the Alto Moncayo (100% grenache) for WLTV…

    Right now, I have about 500 bottles in boxes, and about 100 bottles waiting to be picked up at the WL…

    How many? At the moment, there are about 780 bottles in my cellar. My wife and I drink a bottle of wine with just about every meal we make/eat at home. So I figure that we must go through about 18-20 cases per year, so 780 is not really that much (I know, I’m rationalizing).

  • Shahar Golan

    I finally got to see this episode and I loved it! George Harrison’s got his mind set on me and this song brings back so much; it was a hit that was played over and over on the radio when I worked my first post high school job (as a pictures’ frame maker). And I didn’t even know it was debuted on October 12, which is the day Columbus set sail on his way to discover America, and MY birthday too!

    I’d drink to that, but (QOD) I currently have only eight bottles of wine (four of which are Bourgogne reds, an Italian Ripasso, three Israeli Bordeaux-style reds) and none of them is ready for drinking. I need to go get some wine…

    Great show and thanks for seperating Clio from the Nido.What do you think of the astronomical prices of the 05 Bordeaux futures?

    Qod….about 1200 give or take. Italian, Bordeaux and California Cabs…with a few Pinot, Shiraz and a few various Whites mixed in.

    Should I start another building another case at WL???

    I have a bunch of bottles!

    I have one mixed case of aussie shiraz, a half bottle of champagne, some Languedoc, some Bordeaux, especially a little St. Estephe… oh… you mean bottles that actually still have wine in them?

    One lonely bottle of 03 Lafon-Rochet, sitting next to a heroic but empty bottle of 98 Kirwan. So sad. So sad.
