    QOTD- I am drinking the Root:1 Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile. Very nice indeed.

    Gary,

    In regards to the wristbands, I have the 1st and 2nd generation ones and I wrote you a letter in hopes that you would send me number 3 and 4.

    Well done! Darcey and I each have one of the Gen. 1 wristbands. We also have two Gen. 3 but we seem to have misplaced our Gen. 2 wristband! DAMN! Can we get another Gen 2?

    ALSO: How do we get a Gen. 4 wristband? We’re so needy!
    QOTD: Believe it or not (I can’t, really) I had a 1970 Barolo last night that was quite good 92 points at least. It was cloudy and threw more than its fair share of deposit, but was very good. Rustic, leathery, a bit sweet, rasisny, delicious.

    QOTD:

    Tonight, here in Washington, D.C., I am basking in the glow of attending an opera simulcast of La Traviata in the new Nationals’ Stadium ballpark. How often can a person shout “brava!” in a baseball stadium? Life is good. With that as a prelude, I recommend:

    2005 Yalumba Barossa 95% Shiraz, 5% Viognier, 14.5% abv, $11 @ Costco

    Aroma: cherry oak
    Taste: chocolate berry w/mild pepper, medium fruit, warm and long (but not brilliant, alas) finish.
    Tasty, pleasant, and very good value for the money. Not as silky or as much a fruit bomb as Shotfire Shiraz. Very nice weekday-chill wine.

    Got the first generation wristband, prize of my collection. Only one I don’t have is the 4th generation because non of my family or friends are wine geeks like me.

    Drinking some Penfolds, decent but not amazing. Need to find a better wine shop with a better selection having recently moved to Knoxville, TN.

    Catching up on past episodes after the move [watched 10 at least, so far today]. Better than ever, Gary.

    This comment is coming in kind of late, I know, but just catching up on the past episodes.

    Haven’t tried much Petite Sirah but will be on the lookout for some in the near future…

    QOTD: I’ve been sticking with the local microbrews recently, mostly Sprecher products.

    Great show. Gary- I would love the 3RD GEN wristband! I have 1,2, and 4. I promise to send a picture! QOTD: Chat Marjosse 05′ (my first bordeaux from 2005)- its going to be a fun time running though different bordeaux’s from this year.

    Another late post, but you gotta give some props for catching up on a ton of episodes today..
    I’m drinking a ton of excellent beer? for much less than wine, it brings just as much thunder! Although everything tastes better out of a wine glass. Cheers

    Starting the catch-up episode-watching here. I’ve got the full set of 4 wristbands, now wondering if a 5th has been created in my absence! We bought the Foppiano tasted here, too bad it didn’t score so well. Will definitely keep my eyes out for the Rosenblum though. My wife and I are almost through a 4 half-bottle purchase of the Elio Perrone Moscato…lovin’ it! Also recently joined the wine clubs for Little Vineyards and Wellington (both in Sonoma).

    The Rosenblum stained my kitchen sink not to mention Gary’s teeth. It got a little distracting at one point.
    The creaminess comes from the 60% American oak that the wine was matured in. This is why it reminds you of Australian Shiraz. That is the most common oak they use.

    QOTD: Been buying lots of mixed cases so trying a new bottle everytime, usually 1 in 10 is worth buying again if i’m lucky (mostly at the £8-15 range)
    That said i went to this cool place in London whose concept i’m sure people will have come across (http://www.thesampler.co.uk) where I was able to try a small amount of several things for a similar fraction of the full bottle price, such as Château Gruaud Larose 1966 (never had any aged Bourdeaux, but this was awesome!) a Rivesaltes AOC Vin Doux Naturel 1969 by Baixas D’Agly, caramel and walnuts, also awesome!

    A little all over the place, but the last bottle was a 07 Phantom petite sirah, old zin, and old mourvedre blend. Damn good
