    QOTD: My favorite thing about Ohio has to be King’s Island, the amusement park outside of Cincinnati. Going there as a kid provided me with some of my funnest memories.

    Just to clarify… it’s Kinkead Ridge Revelation, not Revolution. Also, there is no Vidal Blanc in the blend. It’s predominantly Roussanne. We only grow vinifera. There is no residual sugar in this wine; you might be tasting the high alcohol content, 14.8%. Tiny production due to the frost of Easter 2007. I love the mouth feel of this wine. And “diaper” in the Viognier/Roussanne? Hmmm. This was a gold medal wine at American Wine Society.

    I have to say Gary; most of the other 46 states are going to be too terrified to send you wine after the reviews of Ohio and Maryland!

    And now for the good news; our web site got four times more hits than it ever has after your show! So I think a lot of people out there are watching your video blog.

    I’m glad I sent you a selection. Wish you had reviewed the 2005 Cabernet Franc and 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon we sent. Keep an eye on us. The 2007 vintage was hot and dry and those wines will be high in alcohol, like California blockbusters.

    LOL I was on the Ustream feed while you were taping this. I didn’t say the Jets sucked though. It is definitely illegal to Do livestock on the internet. You are even more pumped/hyper than usual in this show. I hate peas. What was that about number 11? He’s so 5 minutes ago now, isn’t he.
    QOTD: In my 1st IT job I used to travel to Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton very often and enjoyed that, believe it or not.

    QOTD: Hate the sports teams so thats out. Never tasted any of the wines so theres a no go. Hmmm…. My friend Steph! Well she lives in the Seattle area now but she’s from there! She rocks it. Decent showing on the wines which was nice. Too bad the one wine was nothing but 2×4’s.

    I went on a two week trip to Ohio, Amish country,Dover,Millersburg, New PHilly, and I will tell you one thing. Ohio does not specialize in what I call “Western” grapes as in Chardonnay, Pinots and Zinfandels. The Catawba grape, which is Ohio’s native variety, as well as Niagra and Chambourcin are the ones that show the state’s true colors in wine. Ohio was also the fisrt state to commercially produce wine back in the 1860’s. It also lead the nation in wine production, beating out California two to one! Check out the Ohiowines.com website. I was surprised. And I love the Catawba grape! Nice, sweet and grapy!
