91/100

line of the day – ‘the Green Hornet, the Green Arrow, and the Incredible Hulk are all in my mouth’
line of the day 2 – ‘tastes like you just ripped the heart out of a panda’

Distinctive unusual wines with Gary on top form as usual. When re-tasting the first wine at the end of the show he says, ‘Yeah, I was right I nailed it.’ Love it

    Great show again!

    Here in the Netherlands Portugese wines are very much underrated and I get the feeling that’s the same in the US. You don’t taste Portugese wines very often in the thunder show. I was wondering what you think of the Portugese whites, I never saw one passing the show. I quite like the Portugese whites, especially when they are made of local grapes as Arinto, Roupeiro, Antao Vaz, etc.

    Hopefully we will see a show dedicated to Portugese wines.

    Keep up the good work!

    Classic!

    “Sometime the mind just goes….”

    Love the rambling randomness of the show, great focus on the wines from you G, the description of the Jardin was classic as well. Great show, great moments, Love WLTV!
