    First time viewer…I am hooked! Although I am not a huge football fan, I am a big wine fan and have watched several videos on your “new to wine” page even though I have been a wine drinker for 10 years. I have learned a lot and found some new wines to try! My local wine shop is going to love you! I have written down 6 wines to try and have already picked up one of them.

    Thanks for all you do!

    I love seeing French wines on the show! Sometimes I feel that the New World is getting a lotta love.

    QOTD: Other than this show, I love finding new words and idioms in French. Like the idiom directly translated, “Let’s return to our sheep” otherwise meaning, let’s get back to work.”

    I don’t try new things? No way. You must not have been talking about me. Unfortunately, I had a different problem and that was that nearly everything I wanted to try was sold out. Bummin!

    Q: Argentinian Malbecs, I’ve been ignoring them for a while and a month or two ago I tried a few that were great, now I am on a huge malbec kick, a great grape that is quite a value right now.

    QOTD: Kudu venison. Kudu is a type of antelope in Southern Africa. The first time was at a lodge near Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. If I remember correctly I paired it with a South African Shiraz. The lodge where I was eating it was overlooking a water hole and all kinds of game was coming for a drink as the sun set. At that very same lodge I had warthog the next night that I had with a pinotage. It was also very good.

    My favorite new experience – wine related – was drinking an Albrino from Rias Baxias.
    I know that you have been playing them up lately, but I find them zesty (with 4 z’s).

    Qotd – Being a Dad! 6 months and growing.

    Wish I had bought a bottle of that Bordeaux when it was on sale and had free shipping – but I did expand my palate on the orders I made!
