    QOTD: I don’t really have a thing. At least I don’t THINK I have a thing. Unless everything is my thing – which means I love every day. But I don’t have one specific thing. Sometimes my thing is my thing, but I can’t go into that here. Whatever I’m enjoying at any given moment could be my thing. Whatever makes me money or makes me happy could be my thing. I wonder if Iraq is anybody’s thing…

    Say, Gar’ — thanks very much for the wristband — but where’s the other one?! You KNOW I need two to fend off the flying corks! Please comply with my request at once!

    Another great ep.

    Hey Gary – How does that Carina Shiraz/Viognier compare with the Australian D’Arenberg Laughing Magpie, which I believe is also a Siraz/Viognier blend??

    flavasauce comment 143. Yes I googled it. Does that mean the wedding is off? I think we’ll need a prenup. :-)

    QOTD: I pulled my 20 year old remote control car (Tamiya Frog) out of storage and it still works! So I’ve been tinkering around with it, so I guess that’s my thing…

    Tough you are. So, QOTD: my thing is cheese, just for now. Wow, I can feel it in my mouth, a good Pecorino, or a Chevre d’Ardennes with Rochefort beer.

    Episode Suggestion: Best wine bottles to use as weapons and which to drink before you strike. The 2004 Majella Sparkling Shiraz Bottle would be first. Now that is a funny way to tie wines together!

    QotD: My thing is…running with my Nike Plus Ipod thing.

    This is why I’m glad all of the old episodes are posted – now I’m buying with a bottle of the Majella! I had some Goosebumps (mollydooker) sparkling shiraz at a tasting and loved it! This is about $18 less and hopefully will bring the same amount of satisfaction!

    Ok – I’m back and I’m drinking the Majella – Gary is pretty much on the nose with this wine, except it might be a little too creamy for some. 93 points is a little high in my opinion but 90+ is very reasonable. Spend the extra 18 bucks and get the Mollydooker Goosebumps – now that wine has the structure that this wine is somewhat laking. But this is still a great bottle and a good buy at $28.

    Good episode. While I have my own palate that differs from Gary’s, he has always been a great help to me in selecting wines. I called my local wine cellar and they recommended the Black Chook shiraz and sparkling shiraz. I will now also try the Carina Cellars and the Majella; hopefully they will take my shiraz experience to the next level. As always, thanks Gary.

    QOTD: My thing is the four (4) W’s. Watches, Wine, Wheels, and Women – in that order.
