The Silver Oak and Opus are very over priced and are just average. QOTD-win the lottery. http://www.winelx.com

    Gary, you are right-on about the hype with these “names”. I’ve had the Opus a few times and never loved it, PARTICULARLY with the PRICE!

    Right now, I’m sipping a 2005 Guenoc “Victorian” Claret – $17.99. GORGEOUS color, knock out flavor, 90 Wilfred Wong and I have to agree. WHY spend $150 on an Opus?

    Thanks for bring us back through twitter! It was a great reminder about value. I happen to have three bottles of the Silver Oak in the cellar and it’s funny, but all three were give as gift last x-mas!! LOL! They should have watched your show and save some $$. I’ll pop one out this summer with a steak and send you a shout out!

    Piece out!

    QOTD: I’m waiting for it to warm up a bit so I can take my Kayak out near Lodi and hit some wineries down there!

    QOTD: I dont know what Im waiting for. I feel like Im stuck in a rut that I need to get out of. I feel like I just want to pack up and move somewhere on a whim. I certianly have the money where I could afford to do so and find some apartment to fall into. Though Id be quite poor after doing so it would be a new adventure. I dont know, a nice week long vacation at least is in order for me. … Sorry about the 0-3, esp at those prices.

    I think you need to do a blind taste-off on WLTV against that fancy lad Brian Freedman from Classic Wines!!! Take him down to China-town Gary and show him what’s what!
