If its heavily oaked how long should you decant it? the longer it decants does it it loose some of its oakiness?

    glad you did this episode. i love the right amount of oak. you don’t taste oak in anything else on earth but wine and the creamy vanilla and nut flavors it gives to wine are some of the best characteristics that exist.

    The oak monster and myself have been distant lately. I will be a good boy and try to make amends. But if he doesn’t watch his ass – two words: chainsaw. firepit.

    Gary, I love you but surely 89 points can’t be a pass?? You have scored wines 89 in the past which have been extremely good wines – this to me is the flaw in the 100 points system; it’s just not consistent and suggests that anything below 90 points is not good. Sorry but that’s how I feel! I think that wines should not be scored at all but just described – it’s just a number and they don’t mean anything to me.
