line of the day – ‘Mott, your linking up and zooming in have been legendary’

Mott makes a rare appearance in front of the camera and although we love him, and we all do, he’s a bit of a distraction to me when tasting along with Gary. I just get the feeling that everything he says is what he thinks Gary wants to hear, and if Gary said a wine tasted of Baboon cr@P, he’d probably agree. Nice guy….but

    Gary, Thank you so much for the xmas secret pack show. My brother showed our family the Thanksgiving show (without the wine) and we decided that night to get the xmas pack and, as a family, become part of the VaynerNation in December. I had emailed you in early December about getting the secret pack in Minneapolis (can’t get it shipped here, WEAKSAUCE!) and you and your crew did your best to help me out. It was looking bleak and then I realized my brother lives in Brooklyn and he could buy the pack and check it on the way to MN. By the way, as you asked we did thank my brother for introducing WLTV to us…it has brought much entertainment and excitement to our family and more importantly my parents are now being more adventurous and trying new wines. OK, back to the xmas pack tasting. We all sat around my brothers laptop in the living room…linked it up to the stereo for true Thundershow sound…and began! Gary, it truly was a great moment for my bro, sis, parents and I to be together on a cold Minnesooota night laughing, sniffing, whirling, sharing our feelings on the wines and noticing how all of our feedback was different just like all of our personalities. It was also great to see our parents in a truly happy state (could have been all the wine) and so relaxed that my dad even began to admit halfway through the show that this reminded him of trying different types of pot in the 60s. WOW, we were laughing almost to the point of tears together. Finally, we tried the Chateau Puech-Haut. GARY! WOW! blew us away! I wish you could have seen the look on all of our faces…I’ll remember it forever. And with that concluded our fantastic evening. Secretly, I told my brother when back in Brooklyn to buy a couple of bottles of the 2004 Chateau Puech-Haut (if he can find it, I see your sold out) and store them. We’d love to surprise my parents in 5 to 10 years and drink that again as a family to relive the memories. Thank you again for all you do!

    Gary,

    I’ve been slacking and haven’t watched an episode in several months, but I came back to experience some THUNDER and want to thank you for this great episode. I’m hoping to make a little time to get caught up, because “a little bit of you” certainly helps me get excited about and reminds me of the important things in life.

    Many Thanks,
    Chad

    qotd: Don’t have one since Maryland’s liquor laws are still antiquated, archaic, and loaded with b.s.
