    I watched this episode. Went out to get FFZ and watched you again. I totally agree. This is an amazing Zin! I called Whole Foods, who said FFZ is flying out of their store since Thanksgiving, so I am going to get their last 4 bottles. Gary your wine choices have influenced Silicon Valley!

    Gary, I just went on my first trip to Napa and stopped at Frank Family, not remembering this episode, and couldn’t agree with you more. Though I am on a very limited wine budget, I had to get a bottle of the 2005 Napa Valley Zinfandel. They also have a very limited production of zinfandel port that was outstanding, and I wasn’t supposed to taste,oops, but couldn’t swing it. Thanks Gary.

    Had the chance to go to Frank Family Vineyards last weekend. Was totally blown away by their entire selection of wines.

    Ended up splurging on their 1998 Signature Brut – simply put, the most incredible sparkling wine I’ve ever tasted.

    qotd: double windsor, but four in hand works better for me sometimes (double windsor uses a lot of the tie so it kinda sucks if you’re tall)

    Ok, I was on the Thunder cruise-over 300 wines to taste. At the end, Gary said, “please take oa bottle to your room if you like”. Of all the wines there, this is the one (The Frank Family Zinfandel) I chose as my gift wine-I had never had a Zin before-I know they as a group may not measure up to this Zin, I have to say this was an awesome wine-(2006) vintage… Impressive!!!

    qotd: don't have a fav, I've never really been into wearing ties, the fact that they serve no purpose what so ever doesn't help that feeling. Add to that that every tie I buy is one less bottle of wine I get to try. I only know one way, I think it's the windsor but I have no idea if that's even the right name for any way of tying a tie
