lines of the day – when Mott looks at his watch off-camera ‘you gotta be somewhere Mott?’ and possibly my favourite line so far – ‘it gets a little like a pig farted, but you didn’t get swine flu’

Some of the comments GV gets are unbelievable (such as one of the ones he reads out here), like he’s getting too commercial and over-hyping his book. I guess jerks watch these shows along with the okay crowd. This is one of the most un-commercial shows on the internet and if you didn’t realise that – you’re stupid. Great show with some hilarious descriptions

    GV – enjoyed the show, love the blind tastings. My first experience with Priorat was Solanes, which hit it big in 2003 and 2004. I still have a couple of bottles in my cellar and it is drinking well.

    QOTD – I am one of those follically (spelling?) challenged people and I don’t really rate hair. However, I watch your show so much that I can always tell when you get a hair cut and keeping it short is keeping it real.

    Great Show GV
    Have been watching for a few hundred episodes and have loved the ride. Hope everything goes well with your wife. I just got engaged this weekend.

    Keep the shows coming. Love the content and the energy. Keep em coming after the baby is born :)

    Haircut is good, fairly standard look for you. Maybe you should bring back the spikey haircut like you used to have it going.

    Be good and holy cow why is my X-Box on? ( Just got home and it has been on all day )

    Wow did you “Crush It” on this show. An instant classic for sure. Oh let me count the ways a) New T shirt material (rocks n sausages, pomegrante car
    wash) b) Nailing the 80% cab Pasanau out of the park c) The best blind tasting
    probably in WLTV history, and on and on. Great show and BTW if you decide to
    pull a Barry Sanders and hang up your WLTV spurs and go out on top well so be it. You’ve done a great service for so long you owe the Vaniyacs nothing.

    QOTD: Luv the doo

    Solid call on wine#1. QOTD: The heat of summer def. requires short hair…although I liked the old spikey hair. Thanks for the show!

    Gary,

    just watched the episode and running to wine store after this email to grab a bottle. you are fueling my passion and spending my money on a rampant pace. Lid looks good. High and tight anbd won’t need another cut anytime soon. Nice call as the next few months you are not about you.

    I am at a building on the Gary Nation in SoCal and trying to push a ton of people to your show.

    Turned 40 today my man! Happy Bday to me.

    You knocked this one out of the park, Gary. I enjoyed the nerdy Priorat introduction, and your email segment was great. Your passion and eloquence were moving; we know you work hard and that you love us all, and I think I speak for the majority of the Vayniacs when I thank you for putting out 680 episodes and wish you the best of luck with your baby and your future career. The sky’s the limit, and we’re all rooting for you :)

    QOTD: The haircut is nice and short and it looks good on you.

    Great show – I’ve enjoyed the few Priorats that I’ve had. Good to see a blind tasting again, as it has been a while.

    The idea of no more WLTV is very upsetting, but all good things must come to an end eventually. So my advice would be to end on a high note, and then maybe we’ll see the triumphant return of GV in a feature length film or something.

    QOTD: Great hair cut.

    Nice job calling the cab in number 1!

    I think your hair is about a half inch too short. I cut my own sometime and make it all 1 inch. Keeps you from looking like your head had a five o’clock shadow.

    Wine sounds good right now but it is time for bed.

    QoTD: Hair looks good and clean.

    Great descriptions today Gary… “batman in your mouth”, “characters of charisma”, “pomegraite carwash”, “pig fart”. Your descriptions are often very helpful, as a lot of can identify with your wording moreso than with the high-falutin wine critic jargon.

    Excellent episode!

    Loved the show on Priorat, one of my favorite wines. And I learned something. I did not realize there was that much variability in the blends – they were all over the map.

    QOTD: Your hair is, um, okay I guess. I don’t usually comment on another guy’s hair. 😉

    Another solid show Gary! I’m heading to Barcelona next weekend so the timing of the episode was fantastic. Will be on the lookout for all five of these superb Priorats. And BIG PROPS to Mott for the trash can swish…it didn’t look like a gimme.
