    I think episode 108 may be just as eagerly awaited as number 100. My prediction- Gary wears Victor Hobson’s jersey (not a stretch).

    This free shipping deal reminds me a little of the Red Lobster “all you can eat crab” special. I believe the CEO was fired over the ordeal. He said something like, “it wasn’t the second and third plates that killed us, it was the fifth and sixth.”

    Geez, Rob! That’s a huge list! I see the Guigal CdP. I added 3 bottles of it to my list (see comment #155). Had a bottle last night, and it was stunning yet again.

    Tim,

    Yeah, but Gary is making money on every bottle. I bet their day over day sales double with this.

    I wonder how he’s going to control the rush once the code is out. Seems like everyone will be telling their friends about the free shipping. It won’t just be a couple hundred Vayniacs using the code.

    This deal is supposed to be for only WLTV “Librarians”, “Vayniacs” or whatever we are. How many of us do you think there are out there? Surely not enough to hurt our fearless leader?

    Gary,

    I am reading a Carl Hiassen novel called “Skinny Dip”. If you’ve ever been to Florida, you HAVE to read some Hiassen. Classic. Funny, dark, interesting character-driven stories.

    Gary, I stopped in your store last Saturday after seeing this episode. You recommeneded the Rocky Creek Zin. Wife and I just tried it. Fantastic stuff. Can’t believe it is only $8.00. Just bought a few more bottles tonight. Thanks for the tip.

    Hey GV,

    I just had the 2003 Pieve Del Vescovo Piovano last night. Loved it for an everyday drinker. I’m getting a bit sick of the fruit bombs everyday and this would match up with a bunch of different foods. I totally got the cheese on the nose too. good call. I think I may finally break down and start exploring Italian wines.

    Finally opened that Rocky Creek Zin bottle. Gary says “Smooth … rich … polished … silky … well-made.” I thought it was quite harsh and bitter. This is just the opposite of polished and silky to me. My score is 77.

    Bob
    Like the show
    (although Gary V. likes a lot more wines that I do)
