    A very good episode, and a very cool guest. Recently had a Beringer Muscato and was really quite surprized that it had character and was not bad at all.

    QOTD – Nope.

  • stump

    Great guest – this guy has a sense of humor and an interesting career story.

    QOTD – Who the fuck would click on a pop-up?

    Informative show and a good reminder about Muscats…

    QOTD – not a chance…

    Need to try some Muscat!
    OMG, I wish the guests watched a show before they made their appearance.

    QOTD: No

    Comparing Muscat to Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders is a stretch. Those guys are two of the best athletes in the world who conquered everything in the path. Big words for Muscat… Perhaps a better analogy to Muscat would be a pitcher who has 3 or 4 great pitches-such as Pedro (back in the day) or Tim Lincecum.

    I’ll have to try and find the Portuguese one – I’ve had the Adega de Pegoes Blanco and it sounds like it’s similar to the Muscat reviewed here, but without the flowers (pineapple is dominant). I think Blanco is a blend with mostly Fernando Pires, an indigenous Portuguese grape that is similar to muscat. That part of Portugal – Terras da Sado – also produces great sweet muscats. Bacalhoa makes a great one for about $15 with good acid.

    There’s green papaya and the orange/yellow papaya. Which one were you referring to?
    QOTD: nope!

    Decent show, not great. Your guest could use just a little more energy when making a TV appearance, but he was cool. I checked out his site. Nice idea.

    QOTD: I use a Mac at home, so my computer doesn’t give me useless popups. I’m forced to use a PC at work, but everything there is so locked down I can’t do anything to fix it, anyway. Short answer: No.

    Eric, I’m a Juice subscriber and I use the site all the time. Thanks!

    Regarding dry muscat, it was a total surprise to me to find that it pairs great with sage-butter sauces. I had it with cheese ravioli in sage-butter sauce. Awesome.

    Best example in a long time of how guests can be such a bad idea. A new low for this boring, boring fellow.

    QOTD- not once

    Glad he got to promote his website and I will look it up but don’t feel like he added much else. Maybe if he is really into Cali Cabs that should have been the topic and would have had him more into it.

    Eric, I used to use you guys when I was in DC. Although the events were too expensive for my far from abundant student budget, I still think the work you do is great. And seeing you on this episode has reminded me to check out what you have as far as the wine scene in Munich, where I now currently live.

    EVO was great. Loved the QOTD. My answer: Hell no! But Eric should have at least watched one episode before coming on the show. As founder & organizer of St. Louis Wine & Dine Meetup Group, I use LocalWineEvents.com a lot. Great site!!!!

    Gary!!! You don’t have a dog??? You need one!!!!

    Dogs are people, too!!! Boxers are good with babies!

    Get a rescued Boxer! And then let the VaynerNation name it!!! How cool would that be?

    Good show! I don’t have much experience with Muscat. Guest was interesting. I couldn’t tell if he was very mellow, or arrogant. Hard to read. Seemed knowledgeable.

    QOTD – I am not sure whether I have ever tried, but I can tell it annoys Mr. Orange.
