    Wow. Microformats appeared on this site :) Kudos for that!

    QOTD: Not every single time, but most of the shows, I do enjoy with a glass of wine.

    Excellent – a REAL Cote-Rotie episode, although I have to admit, whenever I hear Cote-Rotie, I think of “Sir Gary”. :-)

    QOTD: If I watch WLTV at home in the late evening, then I am often sipping some wine. However, I often watch in airports, in a hotel room, or at work during lunchtime and the wine option is, um, not available.

    Dang right I drink wine while watching.

    As a matter of fact, I had the Espelt Saulo last night while watching, and I gotta say, our pallets didn’t jive on that wine. No biggie, I’m going to roll into a bottle of Terlato & Chapoutier Shiraz/Vio this weekend. So I watched this episode to see what I was missing out on by not buying the $55 Guigal.

    Gary came out big for this one and I just don’t taste what he’s talking about. I thought it had a flat bitter cherry taste to it, with a sour dirt undertone – I threw away half of it. It may be just that this winemaker’s sensibility doesn’t agree with my palate, as I have had several poor to lackluster bottles from Guigal and don’t plan on buying any others.

    Fish cheese!? No thanks, id be gaging. I have to make a plum sauce at work and it gets fish oil in it…. YUCK! I cant stand the smell. It probably harks back to when I was in 3rd or 4th grade and ate some dried squid. Fucked up my fish palate forever, I think. Ive seen the Cote-Rote wines in stores before but didnt know a thing about them, thanks again for hammering some knowledge into my brain. QOTD: I watch at all times of the day since Im trying to catch up to the current episodes, so I usually dont plan a wine pairing with the show.

    Hey there G. Just going through the archives and realized I had not tried a Cote Rotie. Will definitely now!

    QOTD: I always have a glass while watching WLTV. Normally after work, I pop a bottle and pour a glass of wine, let it sit, play with my German Shepherd, then go hit the gym, come home, cook a nice dinner, have my wine with dinner and watch WLTV. Always makes for a great ending to the day. Cheers!

    QOTD: I also usually watch (OK, mostly just listen) at work, so no. I do sometimes when I’m at home, but even there, not usually. I drink wine over dinner or dessert 97.62% of the time.
