It says that the wines tasted in this episode include the 2004 Terrebrune Bandol Rouge, but I think that was in the previous episode.

    I have been a part of 2 retail stores (DC & Nashville) and this wine has consistantly sold like crazy at both. I think this would be a great wine to revisit during your next “decant vs. straight from the bottle” episodes. I would (just as Gary does) certainly recommend that this wine be decanted or left in the glass for several hours and that you revisit it several times throughout an evening. I certainly can see some musty, even burnt plastic aromas initially, however, 2 hrs in the glass and it is a totally different wine. I have enjoyed the past several vintages of this GSM with any meat, especially beef right off the grill. I always get a strong note of chocolate and leather from this wine and was surprised not to see that on the show or in the comments. 88 points from GV is great but I think you would have been overwhelmed with a slightly cooler, decanted Panarroz.

    I just tried the panarroz jumilla. when i first opened the bottle i got HUGE plum/plum skin on the nose….but after 3+ hours of decanting it went towards the chemicallyness gary described, although not all the way to baterry acid. It was fruity when i tasted it, but a little confused and all over the place is how it felt. not very settled and the tannins and took over and consumed my pallete quickly from mid to the finish. Decent drinker for 7 bones. Enjoyable with my meat-loaf, and the sweetness of the meat calmed the tannic finish. wouldnt say i’d get another bottle, but it was not the worst wine ive every had. thanks gary for the experience!
