94/100

two lines of the day – ‘this is like your best friend in the world coming in dressed as the opposite sex!’ and the one that made me laugh out loud: ‘this smells like a garbage truck on fire’

Phenomenal episode. First double blind ever, featuring less well known wine-growing states. All wines panned hard but that’s when the best one liners come out…and this show was full of them. Awesome

    Boy thats a tough show. I feel bad for these wineries, but what can you do? I mean Chateau St. Michelle is one of the biggest wineries in the country, but Ive tasted wines from them that I thought were absolute crap. QOTD: Rockin from Washington state, baby!

    QOTD – CT You seemed a little harsh on the wines…but you were hilarious to watch. You should try some Connecticut wines – Albeit they are mostly hybrids but pretty darn tasty ones! Congrats to you and the Mrs. on the happy news!

    46…that’s how many states I’ve been to. still have montana, idaho and the dakotas to touch. currently CA, via MD, VA and PA. so you got two of my four in the mix of the other 46. this did remind me of my first wine trip to oregon roughly 10 years ago. there was a garage wine that the two brothers were affixing labels to after tasting. could have broken the voga barrier for a sub 46 wine there. and there was another deliverance kind of winery that had an american grape that was just horrendous, something noir…oh man, does that bring back memories of “you know i may get shot if i say what this really tastes like.”

    Qotd: Maryland, and Gary where in the world are you getting these MD wines from lol? Dove Valley? I dont know anyone in MD who’s ever even heard of that. You also had Basagnani on a while back, I mean c’mon. If you want to do MD, get a Black Ankle wine on the show, you’ll see that MD is capable of really good wines.
    As a side note, I wonder if it’s harder for boutique wineries in the 13 states where shipping is illegal to get the capital to make quality wines?
