qotd: worst was your white zin show, even though I got to try it at work for free the next day. Best was your Swiss wine episode I’d been meaning to pick one up for a while and that show finally got me too and it was def worth it.

    Worst was the previous secret pack, the red with the smiley face on it. Cute marketing, but off-balance wine with some funk in there that seemed like bad winemaking.

    Looking forward to trying Cornas. I have not yet taken the plunge, but it’s on the list for the next wineshop visit.

    QOTD: Worst- a house wine in a restoraunte in Tuscany and the best a Burnello in Montalcino. I have been in Tuscany for the past 10 days.

    Watched some shows when you first started, but got overwhelmed by the pace; started watching recently with the significant other and we’re hooked. Tried a Greco di Tufo that went down very nicely, but haven’t been lurking long enough to try a bad one yet.

    Saw your question about whether you should drop to fewer shows per week and, much as I love the Thunder Show, it’s tough keeping up with five shows a week. They’re so informative that you don’t want to skip, but five is a lot; three would be easier on the conscience 😉

    As for the book tour? You’re only doing the continental US, so we’ll have to pass…

    My best and worst experiences are regarding the same things. My palette has been expanded, but I now have a tendency to just blurt things out about the wine, beer, whisky…. that I am tasting. My girlfriend finds it to be very annoying. I however think that it is fantastic. I bought a jar of cassis jam recently, and now I know. But to answer your question: my expanded palette.

    Q-Some favorites are Brunello, Amarone, Chateauneuf. Worst, Spanish wines stand out in my mind.

    Good show again Gary V. Thanks for continuing to expand my pal.

    QOTD: Best – Loved the 2006 Chateau Dereszla Tokaji and the 2006 Bertrand-Berge Fitou.

    Worst – Not a fan of the 2005 Le Muscle Cotes De Roussillion.

    “Brian V
    QOTD: I donâ??t drink that much wineâ?¦ but the love the hell out of this show!!!”
    Now that’s cool!

    QOTD; I don’t really think of it as bad wine, just different wine. Had something called Amigo (Spanish mix), not a great wine, but very cheap so I would say it was an okey wine. Just because of the price

  • Luis Felipe

    QOTD – The only wine that I have had as a recommendation from the Thundershow is the Washington State CMS (Cab, Merlot, Syrah), which I conveniently found in Penn Station’s Wine shop on my way back home to Long Island (which answers the question of where I’m from). I liked the CMS a lot. I’ve ordered 2 bottles of the Kosher wine from Oregon, which Gary reviewed in the Recomendations show: the Pomum 2005 Shya Red. I can’t wait to try it out.

  • damon aka unknownwine

    that’s a tough question.
    I’ve hit Chablis pretty hard as a result of some of the shows.
    Languedoc and such have been good.
    can’t think of a reccomendation that has been disappointing. If I think of one I’ll post it later.

    QOTD: Any Cote de Rhone rocks…I have yet to try any of the Washington State wines that you have had on the show, but of the Wash. wines that i’ve tried, none have impressed me.

    I was surprised that the Olivier LeFlaive was so poor.
    I went to a lunch and tasting at their cellar in Puligny Montrachet and the wines were quite good, although not exceptional.

    Best wine experience from WLTV – Four Vines Naked Chardonnay
    Worst wine experience from WLTV – not being able to be shipped to in MA

    Hey Gary – Best recommendation from you – Albarino. Great white. Brought a few bottles to a party yesterday and to our demise, it was a hit! Thanks for that direction.

    Catching up on WLTV while driving (riding actually) to see my family and celebrate my sister’s graduation.

    I picked up a Chardonnay in a box (a Tetra Prisma pack) and it was pretty horrible. I don’t think I would have bought box wine if I didn’t watch WLTV; I’m still open to box wine, just not that one. It was from Green Groves.

    I got the 2005 Bzikot white Burgundy from WL and it was awesome, introduced me to some great seashell flavors that I hadn’t experienced before. Before watching WLTV, France wasn’t really on my radar–the appellation system kept me away.

    I like it when you bring the small and almost unheard of areas like Rully into the picture. It really teaches me what is hard to get straight answers on usually from other sources.

  • Dessert Wine Nerd

    QOTD: Best: Ive brought up this wine several times, but its brought the thunder…. A Royal Tokaji 5 puttonyos after you mentioned azsu wines in like episode 73 or something. Worst? hmmmmmm Cant say Ive had a worst because I havent tasted an exact wine from the show yet ( more like buying a type of wine than the actual mainly cause I cant find it ), but I have hated a pinot gris then loved another one.

    i am in west des moines iowa

    ummm qotd worst: elk cove vineyards 2007 willamette valley pinot noir rose. I decided to try roses again because of the thunder show and the trying new things thing, but this was too acidic and way over oaked.

    qotd best: that’s a lot harder. I’ve tried a lot of stuff in the vein of always buy something new every time you buy something old and most of the time i’m very happy I did. It’s pretty had to get wines that were on the show locally for me, but I’ve had a couple carmenere’s lately that i’ve really liked thanks to the try new things attitude.

    QOTD: Best is Rieslings (Leitz Rudesheim Dry, and Schloss Johannisberg Rheingau Kabinett- Off Dry) both massive QPRs. Worst is maybe a Condrieu 4-producer collaboration, good typical off dry viognier, then a bitter finish which ruined it!
