    Hey Gary,
    I am catching up on some episodes. You know you tasted the ’02 cinq cepages in episode 53 when you interviewed the winemaker margo something. I watched the ep to make sure, and you were really holding back in that interview when it came time for your synopsis on the wine. That, or bottle variation.

    QOTD: Thai food and 2002 bergweiler riesling kabinett wehlennur sonnenhur. awesome combo.
    also had a 2004 domaine girard sancerre and i was not very impressed the night before. the sancerres recommended in your shop have been better than the ones i have bought based on spectator’s molesworth’s recs. i like his taste in cab franc alot though.

    Gary, you mentioned how people are looking for some mass produced wines that are easily available. How about an episode with just wines that are massed produced…like 35,000 cases or more? Just my 2 cents today.

    Hey, Gary. It still amazes me the way you describe the way wine smells and tastes! :)

    QOTD, late: I ended up drinking some beer (Guinness) and some CHEAP Chianti (Piccini — I know, I know)

    QOTD: Water. Many of my wines are too young to be drinking now or should be opened for a special time and last memorial day ( as I write this on 7/10/08 ) I worked then came home and just relaxed… Is it just me or have you said the phrase “As you can see, really nice dark red color” about 1000 times so far on the show? So the Clos du Bois didnt pass the test? Ive seen that in many a store and am quite happy now that I didnt spend the $15 or so dollars on it.

    qotd wow, thats a little hard to answer being that its december right now. i’ll say a uhudler, if i can find one. that specialty wine coming outta Austria i just read about made outta vitis labrusca varietals. im guessing it might be a litle ‘foxy’.

    Gary, how about putting a vin jaune on the show one day?
