    QOTD: Rome, Paris, Berlin coming up, and I am not unhappy living close to Aarhus, Denmark either ;-) Prague is a very good candidate too – especially after this shop opened: http://www.ndv.cz/ – he ought to do a page in english though…

    Tremendous EP Gary! LOVED the description of the Nieto Cadus, and that is what this is all about. To me a phenomenal angelic “FOF” nose like that makes it worth the anty, even at 32 bones. I’m not an oak fan either, so it really is a shame to have such beautiful fruit mangled by a chain saw on tree trunk. Can’t believe Tonya Harding made an appearance on WLTV!! Brings back memories from the mid-90’s when we lived in Portland and that whole thing went down. QOTD: Paris. In U.S. I’d have to go with Minneapolis.

    Super episode, Gary! I really enjoyed your passion once again. I don’t get the massive oaking either. A very intriguing episode, though. I am definitely going to seek out the Susanna Balboa.

    QOTD: My favorite city in the world is still Paris, but Barcelona is now a very close second.

    I’m a little late on this episode, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE Malbec, so I was so excited to see this episode in the archive. I’m definately going to have to try the Alamos (keep the great wines under $10 coming…great for wine addicts on a budget!)

    QOTD: In the US I LOVE Austin, TX (such a fun city!). Internationally I love Paris (I went there on my honeymoon in June…I might be a little biased).

    Great show. First time viewer.
    Another possibility is the Alta Vista Malbec from Mendoza, or a
    Shiraz-Malbec blend from Callia Alta, origin San Juan. Also reasonably
    priced.
    We like Buenos Aires.

    Great show. I need to try more Argentine Malbec. I really enjoyed the ’06 Crios de Susana Balbo Torrontes so I’ll need to seek out more of her wines.

    QTOD: Tough one. Probably have to go with NYC.

    Stay away from the cookie cutter industrial malbecs. There are hundreds of small production wineries producing only Malbec such as Naiara that are making excellent wines.

    2005 Naiara Malbec – 88 points Robert Parker – $9.99
    NY Times: “Best Malbec in the World for under $10″

    2005 Malbec Reserva – 90+ points Robert Parker – $14.99

    Cheers!

    QOTD: Its not fair really to answer this seeing as how I havent been to places that I’d like to all over the earth, but if I must I must. I live in Seattle, and I will die in Seattle. Its such an amazing place when you think of how close you are to lakes, oceans, mountians, rivers, parks, beaches, etc. Then when you toss in the cultures, food, wineries, weather (yes, we do have amazing sunny days)and people there’s no beating it (from my perspective).
