Great episode from what is now the archives! Was reviewing the GV list and had to see what you rated 99+. I would love to get my hands on some of the cheese and totally that wine in a few more years!!!

    Gary,

    I’ve been meaning to tell you this…try Red Yeast Rice for the cholesterol issue. You can find it at any vitamin shop or even costco.com. It works wonders and is an all natural alternative to the drugs. My doctor put me on it after my thyroid issue and it dropped my levels from 240 to 178 in about 6 weeks. Now I take two a day and I eat all the cheese I want…need to in my line of work.

    Give it a try…’cause cheese is sooooo good with wine!!

    I’m behind in the episodes, but keep ’em coming…they are so informative and entertaining!!

    Hi again Gary,

    It’s hard to watch you enjoying so much cheese without running to the grocery to supplement my supply!

    Great QOTD! As an avid E-Bayer I’m also on the lookout for great steals and deals and have fortunately found my share. Some of the highlights include an original hardcover Boy Scout Manual from 1910 and some boxes of out-of-print classical and garage-band LPs (many of the records signed by the artists or conducters). Let’s hear it for treasure hunting!

    QOTD: Best deal ever: I was at a local market and they had Flora Springs 1998 Trilogy in their discount basket for $15.00. At the time, it retailed for about $50 and could stand up to a $100 wine with it’s foil tied behind it’s back.

    Has Gary rated a wine 100 points on the show? I know he gave a Spanish wine 100. Help me out. Or I can scroll the spreadsheet. Man I want some Angelus

    I think I’m going to buy some cheese next time I have a young red wine. Thanks for the tip!

    QOTD: I’ll call it right now…Teachworth Cabernet…I’ve been posting about them off & on for about a year. “Bob” is set to taste their wine for the first time in about 3-4 months….I’m calling them the next “Scarecrow” or other “Cult” wine….producing only 105 cases out of 2 acres in 2002 they are set to become the next “cool hidden find” in Napa

    Nice to see some 2005 Bordeaux tasted. I made a moderate purchase at Costco (my best friend when it comes to some costly wines I desire), a 2005 Reginac, and hopefully in 10 years it will round out very nicely. I also call unfair on the cheeses. If I was in your position Id have my colesterol shooting upward from all the cheeses I was eating as well….. PICTURE PAGES!! Ha, I remember those with that musical pen. I wanted one of those so badly when I was younger. Could some of your tasting notes be more bizzare? Old socks in a ditch for a year? I love it! QOTD: I think the best deal I ever got was buy an orignal numbered Beatles White Album on vinal with all the extras and in very good condition (not the MFSL version). Even so, a gem I will always carry close to me.

    Hi GV!!

    I’m reviewing my favorite shows and the #223 is one of my favorites.
    It’s the 4th time I’ve watched this show now, and every time I get jealous of you. 😉
    One awesome wine and all those cheeses!
    And that prediction was solid, 2005 Bordeaux changed completely the price point range.

    I think it’s time for another Cheese & Wine Show!

    Best wishes, for you, your Dad, Lizzie, Misha and Mr. Mott.

    qotd: A local wine store was carrying a Petrus in a temp controlled room in their store. But either the high rollers didnt know they had it, or they never shopped there. I’d seen it there maybe a year when I noticed they marked it down quite a bit so it would sell. I also knew the whole store was having a 25% off sale in about a week. So I went in the minute it opened that day and scooped it up. Got it for hundreds less that it was going for just over a week ago.
    Gary how about putting a vin jaune on the show?
