    91/100

    line of the day – ‘this wine is very one-dimensional, and that dimension is water…and danger’

    I find myself enjoying Gary’s asides, winks, frowns and general facial expressions almost more than the content these days. He was asking a lot of the Mottster to identify differences between the same wines opened at different times, and Mott duly appeared all at sea…poor Mott. Also a funny slapstick ending. Classic

      Dude, did you mix up the glasses somewhere in there??

      Anyhow, QUOTD: my “scene”? As far as life in general goes… I can’t get enough of nyc fun-ness. As far as wine goes… love gigondas. Keep up the great work! And do some live stuff in new york sometime!

      Even thought this is late, my scene right now is just relaxing. I have spent the last two months studying for my PhD qualification exams. I finished them up last week, passed, and now need to decompress and catch up on some WLTV.

      Mott! You are the man! I love the surprise appearances!

      wicked cool show Gary. This episode is ‘real’ and brings the thunder. It wasn’t too outrageous or showy, just awesome. A co-worker of mine was looking over my shoulder as you tasted the first verdejo (sp?). She was impressed at how rough you were with it, especially when I told her that your store carries the wine.

      Love that pour move at the end as well! you’ss have to put the VaynerPatent on it!

      QOTD: My scene is work (I am a photographer), my girlfriend (Love you Bethany!), and drinking wine. Also, trying to buy a home…. we’ll see!

      GV – would love to get some of the Italian wine. I have not had many Verdejos, but I generally enjoy Spansh whites.

      QOTD – My scene may be considered boring. I have 4 kids with my eldest in her freshman year at college. This leaves us with less “free cash flow” than we are used to, therefore we do not entertain as much as we used to, but we are getting on fine.

      Just found you today & really glad I did! I will be tuning in…my scene? Cruising up & down the Hudson sipping Chianti…yep – I loooove Chianti & I hope to see you discuss it. Know why? Because it tastes like the grapes it is made from. I like my wine to taste like grapes, but dry, not sweet, with LITTLE hints of other things ….aged in steel, no oak, although sometimes I am suprised by a wine that was aged in wood & I swear you can’t tell. Glad the Ruffino Ducale Gold Label took care of their, uh, issues & is back & bold! Even Napa Cab snobs like it!!! By the way – let me know if you want to tape a show on the Hudson in a yacht. Back drop? NYC skyline! :)

      My brain is so fried right now from work. Im not even sure why I attempted to watch this video. Ouch on the first wine, but I love Sprite so woohoo on the second! QOTD: Right now my thing is tossing some coin at some of Seattles finer restaurants. Hey you only live twice…

      Awesome show- I always get confused about Montelpuciano…its an area where they make Nobile de Montelpuciano using Sango…but then there’s Montelpuciano d’abruzzo…which is NOT made in Montelpuciano…and is made from a grape literally called Montelpuciano…right? Whatever, good wine. QOTD: Trying to learn myself stuff today.

      Translation for El Perro Verde = The Green Dog, I can’t wait to try a good verdejo white wine… Good show Gary. Suggestion: can you use a white table cover so we can see the wine colors better and may be a close up shoot from the top..

      Hi folks, is there any consensus on how the Barone Cornacchia will age? I've got a case in the cellar now and am not sure when this guy will peak. Any thoughts??
