    Wow just checked out the Iron Sheik video. He really doesn’t respect that guy, but other than that it was evidently a “great night.” Hahaha.

    Funny you mention calling someone I havent talked to in a long time because Im doing that later. She means a lot to me so it will be great to hear her voice again. Also on the Iron Shiek….. yeah that poor guy has totally lost his marbles. I know what youre talking about and thats some crazy —-. Its sad that the only real reason people have him on shows is to see his reactions to questions and whatnot. Just dont mention Brian Blair! QOTD: Thats a big ol’ goose egg, 10-4.

    Nice to see a show on Tannat. I’m from Argentina and the only other south american wines I’ve had outside of Chilean and Argentine wines are Uruguayan. I am becoming a big fan of Uruguayan Tannats.

    Oh and BTW, I saw a lot of references to Mexico in these comments. Come on people, Mexico is part of North America, together with the US and Canada.

    Do another Madiran show, especially considering the recent findings of the unusually potent health benefits of Madiran wines. http://www.brainready.com/blog/french_madiran_wine_best_fo.html
