line of the day – ‘Big blackberry flavours exploding on my nose like a grenade’

Barnstorming episode featuring GV at his best. When he goes on about the nuances of different vintages his knowldege is scary. The visible wince when trying the last wine is classic Gary, and sticking the wooden box on his chair as an Oak Monster substitute made me laugh. A classic.

    Finally got around to watching this one. The ending wasn’t disappointing… as someone who doesn’t get to drink a lot of older wine (yet), seeing how a wine can transform into something disappointing was interesting and educational. Don’t under-estimate the value of being able to learn from a disappointment… I enjoyed it. Thanks for all the shows! 700 is a lot of time invested and your continued enthusiasm is contagious.

    QoftheDay? 5 months ago i bought some land in Joshua tree ca. On my way out i stopped in temecula ca. As the day went on it got colder and colder. By 7pm it was 20 degrees with 50mph winds. So i retreated to the only thing left on 10 acreas by the former owner, A old Vw van. The only thing i had to entertain me was a case of random wine i picked up and my laptop without internet. Some how or another There Gary was, 10 episodes. I was shocked i had no clue how they got their. I must have drank 1/2 that wine that night and watched all 10 ep. Ever since that night i have changed the way i smell drink and enjoy wine. U changed my view on what can be said about wine.
    Thanks Gary

    Hey GV – Congrats on 700 shows! The show was not disappointing, I have several vintages of the Lambourghini in my cellar. It is a GREAT wine and I am glad to see that you are keeping some around as well.

    QOTD – Believe it or not, the College Humor episode popped into my head as well as the recent Sake episode. The New Zealand wine maker was really cool as well.

    qotd: ummmm wow i don’t remember the number at all or the wrestlers involved, but it was the one where you moved the spit bucket and the bodyslam reversed into a pin and you were on it tapping him out…. I mean I had to pick a non wine moment cuz there have been sooooo many great ones.

    great episode Gary, but I’m unclear on 1 thing. I dont like a lot of oak on my wines, and did you detect any on the 94 napa harrison cabernet at all?

    QOTD: Can't think off the top of my head, but I usually leave the longest comments for my face episodes. Once i'm caught up to date maybe i can go on a retrospective. thanks for all the episodes though!

    qotd: I guess seeing the vin jaune episode after I requested it I’m guessing maybe 200 times. Even though you got one that wasn’t from that great a producer or because it wasn’t open long enough (it should be open at least 4 hours) or because it wasnt old enough (it should be at least 10 years old before popping). Obviously it’s a really fickle and oddball wine. Which was why I requested I guess.
    But really how can you pick just one out of 700? That’s liking picking just one favorite wine, it can’t really be done.
