    Wow….good show. Interesting to see the 2006 Mitolo GAM linked up as a wine below…

    QOTD: I’d say the biggest opportunity I’ve had is working in the industry and picking up some really great wines at an amazing discount(-30%).

    Opportunity – tough QOTD.
    My number one opportunity is to see my daughter flourish in the final stages of her senior year in high school and pick the college that she wants to attend.

    These Bordeaux wines are way overpriced are simply cant compare with Napa Valley wines.

    No Joke…want to see what a Chateau Latour or Chateau Marguax taste like for around $30?

    Take 1/2 each of the Robert Mondavi Napa Cab & Robert Mondavi Oakville cab and mix it together. These two wines creat an unreal blend where the synergies of these rare vineyards truly create a 1+1=3.

    I would agree that the 2004s are well priced and worth picking up. It is good to see merlot given the credit it is due after the fall-out from “Sideways”, and yes I also like wines which first and foremost have balance and structure. The better California wines are getting very expensive.

    QOTD…to answer this question fully would take a book. Since I believe that everything in the three-dimensional world is a reflection of aspects of our consciousness, I believe that all of life is a schoolhouse. It is a great opportunity to observe what happens every day and apply the underlying spiritual principles at a personal level. The mutual interdependence of the spiritual and physical aspects of life is a powerful concept. To go further here, one would have to approach what the ultimate purpose of life is – for which I have strong and rather controversial views. Suffice to say, there is more to everything than what meets the eye – and the opportunity is to prove this to be true.

    Great show once again. As I go through these old episodes Im growing increasingly jealous that I wasnt around to be at these events. :P One day, I swear! I was at my wine shop the other day to pick up a bottle they had gotten for me and taking your advice I strolled over and checked out what 2004’s they had. Obviously the price points were much lower than the 2005’s, and I think I’ll grab a bottle while I can. QOTD: To move to Florida. Theres a female friend that lives there that I just adore and well…. lets leave it at that.

    Have not tried these wine, have the Sansonnet in cellar. It's good now that the 2006's are so cheap. QOTD-winning lottery. http://www.winelx.com
