EP 161 Petite Sirah Wines After a Big Loss

Wines tasted in this episode:

Petite Sirah is it the same as Syrah? Is Petite Sirah bigger or smaller then Syrah? Is Petite Sirah the same as Durif? All these questions and more will be answered by a sad Gary Vaynerchuk.

Just came back from Napa and tried some great Petite Sirahs, have had some over the yrs but maybe only a couple times a year, now I will seek them out more, not had these Gary drank yet. QOTD-too broad a questions, depends on what caused the sadness..Jets losing which caused you to shave would be a Cab. http://www.winelx.com

    Gary! Gary! Gary! Wow! Nice bit! Even with your intended subduedness, you still can make me laugh! It would also been great if you had 4 hard liquor bottles laid out for tasting.
    For me, Concannon’s PS is always on hand. A nice go to.
    As usual, a little late CONGRATS GAR on seeing you in WS Mag.

    I know this is a couple of days late, but maybe you’ll find it useful some other time.

    QOD: Here’s something a little different to consider: it might not be a good idea to drink anything you plan on enjoying deeply in the future. On some level, you will associate the wine with your sadness, and each wine is a unique enough stimulus that drinking it again will bring back some degree of the state you were in when you drank it before. Curse Pavlov and Skinner for complicating the decision-making process!

    Cheer up, bro! The Jets earned themselves a helluva lotta respect this year. I know I’m certainly more aware of them than ever before.

    That wasn’t a wine tasting; that was a funeral.

    I don’t drink wine when I’m sad. It’s not appropriate. It’s time for vodka bay-bee! —> Boru (Irish), Vox (Dutch), or Belvedere (Polish): tall glass, ice, 7-up; 2 parts vodka, 1 part 7. Repeat until no longer sad. . .

    Gary, dude, I am SO SORRY about your Jets. All I can say is that I feel your pain. I am a Browns fan. We have NEVER been to a freakin’ Superbowl! I had to suffer in person through “The Drive” and “The Fumble” and see that jackass John Elway go to Superbowls and lose!!!! AAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!! Then there’s my Indians… Damn Marlins in 1997 – we HAD that one – Damn Marlins!!!!

    The pain is real. Anyway, I know you are in mourning, so I admire you even more than ever for doing a show. And if you weren’t “acting”, and I don’t think you were, that was inspiring.

    QOD: Oddly, I like to drink a fantastic and expensive bottle of wine when I am very sad. Soon after my dad passed away in 1999, I single-handedly polished off a 1986 Mouton Rothschild. Hang in there!

    Just tried the Concannon and came back to see how Gary’s assessment matched my own. I actually disagreed slightly on the balance. The wine I had (decanted 2h) still presented a bit of an alcoholic finish, but not offensively so. I think Gary gave the Concannon a bonus point for surprising him. I score the Concannon 88 points, still a great value at the price point.

    Let’s move on.

    My palate must be off tonight, as what I got from the Concannon was something along:

    “What this wine is giving me is big jammyness up front, followed by a grape jam mid pallet, as well as grapiness and jammyness.”

    I didn’t find even $10 worth of complexity. Then again, I’ll admit, my palate might be off tonight. That would be due to a root canal this morning that I’m still whining about. I’ll wait until the next time to submit a serious review at Corkd.com.

    You look so sad!!!!

    I came back to re-watch this episode after watching today’s PS episode. Thanks for representing, even though it was obvious you were crying inside

    QOTD: red value wines. that Concannon would do nicely (and possibly break me out of my rut!)
