      Where’s Gary?

    • dadobs

      I’m an idiot…or at least uninformed…or probably an uninformed idiot. Apologies to Gary and longtime WLTV stalwarts for the occasional redundant question(s) I’ve asked over the past few weeks. With GV gone, I’ve had the chance to go back and read up on such topics as the benefits of decanting, why GV pans some wines they carry, etc. The early episodes have been enlightening…and entertaining…and humbling…. I had no idea so many issues had already been covered.

      I should probably go back to lurking for a couple months until I complete my enophilic due diligence and catch up on all past efforts. In the meantime, you’re missed, GV. Hope you’re back soon!

      “A beautiful rock of pleasure and flavor” …. you #$%^ing perv.

      So here’s my weird tasting note of the day, tasted a two day old very chilled Greco di Tufo today (from Vesevo, decent producer). Absolute nose of grocery store sugary gumballs straight out of the vending machine. Who wooda thunk it.
      G-Man come home baby, come home.

      Gary, You were too vayneramped from the Jets victory and I think it affected your palate on that glorious day. I bought the Coli Senesi. Remarkable? Hardly. Awful? Yes. I don’t think you can even cook with the stuff. Don’t worry, you can’t be perfect all the time. Look forward to your return.

      Love, love, love, watching you man – you totally got it going on- wine, brains, experience, honesty, you’re alive, green, herbacious, strawberry, jets, chuck… But, uh, WTF is this 177/108 thing. Can’t help it, I love you man, but this is messed up. There’s a difference between a killer show and a fake one. (FAKE!) Oh and whenever the hostess asks if you have â??Reservations” for dinner, say “Yes, but I’ll eat here anyway.”

      I haven’t seen this episode yet, so I’m gonna go ahead and reply to the question of that day:

      2003 Achaval-Ferrer Quimera
      2003 Bodega Catena Zapata Malbec Catena Alta
      2006 Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough
      2001 Allegrini Palazzo della Torre
      2004 Benton Lane Pinot Noir Willamette Valley
      2005 Elk Cove Pinot Gris Willamette Valley

      Ok, so I named 6, kill me.

      And while I’m at it, the last two wines I had that completely blew me out of my tree each in its own way…

      2002 Mongeard-Mugneret Grands-Echezeaux Grand Cru
      1998 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Crau

      What’s with the bottle of “La Cueva Del Contador” at 11:27 and 12:07 minutes? (10:08 and 10:48 in the original video). Somebody apparently was playing tricks but nobody seemed to have noticed anything. Are there any ghosts in the store?

      Yuw. Hadn’t seen this one yet … Nice, and cool to find a wine for 7 bones that delivers. Reminds me of a Chianti I got last year: 2001 Castell’in Villa C. CLassico, â?¬ 7 or smth. and really delicious, just couldn’t say anything wrong about it. Perfect, succulent, silky smooth, great balance, fresh, crisp, tobacco, earthy, cherry, … name it, is was all there. In a Sangiovese blind tasting it was also one of the favourites (dunked Frescobaldi and Fonterutolli, isn’t that nice?).
      QOTYesterYesterYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY…D: see ep. 108 :D!

      love that you keep showing us wines like that chinese one that most people havent seen yet. speaking of which, a vin jaune episode would be really fun to see Gary.
