    Good to see the questions being anwered again. Folowing up on Eugene, I think it would always be better to pair, “Taste lots of different wines” with “Trust your own palate”, since our palates change and adventure keeps everything fresh and interesting. Happy, healthy and joyous holidays to all, except the Fins (they only get healthy and joyous).

    Gary, you were oh so coy about avoiding mention of your apparent countdown numbers. I believe a few of us matched the starting number with a possible baby V. Any truth to that? If not that, then it’s a real stumper for the moment. Thanks for the show! jp

    My money is on a Vaynerbaby as well, Joe P.
    Many people don’t believe in making an “official” announcement until the first trimester is over, which would be a feasible explanation for the mystery.
    Gary better watch himself though, because if she is anything like me, his wife is going to give him MAJOR hell over the beard!!
    Gary, from an ex-NYer (Brooklyn to be exact), living in South Florida:
    GO JETS!

    Wine-O:

    From one restaurant operator to another, beware there are pitfalls to having your suppliers print your list for you. Seems like today things change too rapidly regarding vintage etc. When printing is so cheap, why have a supplier do it?

    Gary is right on the money, you want YOUR STYLE AND YOUR TASTE to come through on the list.

    So I understand that the numbers today happened to be a prediction, but what about all the other days? What are you counting down to? Episode 400ish, apparently….

    Great episode today! I’m just getting into wine, and I’m trying as many different ones as I possibly can, seeing what’s out there, and enjoying my favorites because they taste good to me….no matter how they’re rated by the ‘pros’. Wine–like any food or beverage we consume–is so personal and subjective. Ratings are helpful, sort of like general guidelines, but how can we all be expected to like the same thing? I agree that you have to go with your own personal taste. It only makes sense.

    Thanks for another great episode, Gary, and I wish happy and safe holidays to everybody.

    Oh, and has the Vaynerwife ever been a guest on the show? I’d like to see Liz!

    Looks like Herm and I tied with 4 off. At least I got the fish score right. What do we get??? At least they won unlike my now gone Steelers. Oh well. NHRA starts in a little over a month. Waitin for the Nitro!

    Hey Gary, congratulations on a great win by the Jets! Oakland (Jokeland) should not be a problem. Now that the Steelers are out (what a bizarre season they had!) I have a new team to root for. I hope you had a great Christmas and have a great New Years. Go Jets and go Gary!

    Santa read my letter! I received my official Vayniac T-shirt for Christmas! Other gifts cost more, but none made me more happy than my V-shirt.

    Hope you found your heart’s desire under the tree on Christmas morning. Happy holidays to all.

    Gary,

    OK, posting the score prediction would be pointless since everyone knows that the Jets won. Boy, those Monday Night Football announcers sure didn’t give much love to Chad Pennington. But he gets the last laugh with another win. The weird thing is, despite the fact that I don’t give a hoot about the Jets, I found myself rooting for them. I figure if the Jets make it to the Superbowl, Gary will probably be very generous and give all Vayniacs free shipping for a week! :-)

    Wine! I forgot about the wine! Great episode once again. I actually have a couple bottles of a 2003 Meandro in my cellar that I believe WS scored 90 points. Now I can’t wait to try it.

    Thank you! Portugal wines do not seem to get enough praise or even notes. I’d love to see you do more shows on them.

    I like that your pushing Portuguese wines Gary, definite values coming from there.
    Any chance of you doing a vin jaune episode?
