88/100

line of the day – ‘this is one putrid effort of a Nebbiolo’

The lighting in this flipcam episode was way too dark which is a shame as the end result is spoiled a bit. The highlight for me is when a random guy peers through the window from the street near the end… obviously thinking WTF is going on here.

    Backlit, but neat show. I’d love to know whether you just dropped in to this particular spot, or planned it.

    QOTD: …. original sin hard cider(?) ;)

    Lets start here. *Worst wine by the glass recently,?, A nnasty, probably open too long Chianti at a local rest. Not worth remembering the name. *Best was a merlot but I never remember the names when I go by the glass.

    Fun show Gary! I even liked the “edit” and yes Mott’s job had better be safe.( the Gretsky show was a sleeper for me.)

    I am glad you talked about the time that wines are open in the wine bars. I also wonder when you should complain and send back wines that seem to be past their window of goodness?

    MMmm where was I? I had to take a 2 hour break from this to feed my son and get him to bed.

    You reminded me of the movie “So I married an axe murderer” when you showed us your phone to prove that Cab texted you. There’s a part in the movie when the mother of Mike Meyer’s character shows him the National inquirer and says that being printed makes it a fact. Whenever you start talking about “over oaking” you forget to say “over oaked for my taste” and that sort of makes the statement come across as the final word. I of course don’t listen to you because I know it’s all a matter of my own palate. (yes I have been watching for a little while now, maybe a couple hundred episodes.)

    I hope the cafe comped you those tastes in exchange for showing there place to the Vayner Nation.

    Being that this episode is week old I hope you do gat a chance to read this.

    Nice cork check to the flip cam at the end by the way, nice parting shot of the ceiling.

    Still loving the variety of shows, thanks! 97 was an interesting choice; you must have had former steeler Kendrell Bell on your mind. QOTD: Best: the Brunello on the Thundercruise at the winebar; Worst: I like all wine.

    I was really impressed by Aroma Kitchen & Winebar in the East Village. Great Italian wine list. Very authentic menu and great people.

    Like the flip cam episodes and the on location tastings.

    QOTD:

    Best – Banfi Brunello di Montalcino
    Worst – A weak Chardonnay, even from a new bottle

    I hate the flip cam episodes because the video sucks. Just my opinion. Of course, if you would quit shooting into the light, it would be a bit better.
