    Why can’t we just drink the stuff? Seriously… it is partially because of this whole concept that I will likely never have a chance to taste a classed growth Bordeaux – cause it is too damn much money! Maybe next time the Chinese economy collapses some of the newly mega-rich over there will be looking to offload their truckloads of Petrus for pennies on the dollar?

    Would surely love to know what you thought of the NYT article, which sort of seemed a little like a hatchet job– the NYT has to be loyal to the high-brows I guess.

    John: Organic Single Vineyard Cabernet from Santa Cruz Mountains
    George: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc – exotic tropical flavors
    Paul: Gewurtztraminer, too sweet for some people but a real winner overall
    Ringo: Peruvian Pisco

    Paul: Vouvray
    John: Cote Rotie
    George: Champagne

    Cool question. I liked the guest, but I don’t think I’d take investment advice from a guy that doesn’t really know how to taste wine.

    I liked the guest, but overall the show was a very distant overview of the title topic. The takeaway message pretty much seemed to be: If you want to invest in wine, be really, really good at second-guessing Robert Parker. It seems to me there must be more to it than that.

    QOTD: I don’t like the Beatles much, I’m afraid. For me, the whole lot is like a mediocre Sangiovese: Lots of promise up front, but in the end, not enough depth. I’m sure many, many people totally disagree with that, but that’s my (musical and oenological) palate.

    The latest issue of Wine Spectator just arrived, and James Laube’s editorial is about his own cellar experience and what to take into consideration…it sure seems like he is only in it for the drinking too, no mention of investment.

    Incidentally, Matt Kramer’s piece about everybody being a wine expert these days, and what it actually takes to have capacity for good ‘judgement’…tasting a lot of wines is not enough, he says.
    Hmmm, I can’t tell if he is taking a subtle jab at someone we know…

    Vayniac ?otd: Is there any place that covers what vineyards and wineries Parker is invested in? Since he can move markets, is this something that we should be concerned about?

    Sorry for the late comment guys. Anyway…what a great qotd! I have been loving reading everybodys responses! I am not ahuge Beatles person..but here goes,
    QOTD: Paul: He seems very familiar and comfortable..like a Mosel Riesling.
    John: He seems a little too hyped up and adored…maybe like Napa Cab.
    George: I dont know enough about him… kind of like South African wine.
    Ringo: He just seemed liked a lot of fun…like a Brachetto d’Acqui.

    Funny that I should be listening to APC’s rendition of Imagine today.

    The Beetles were never big in my life, so unfortunately I can’t answer this QOTD. Which sucks because it is an awesome QOTD and would’ve been very fun. Can I do Led Zeppelin?? ;)

    Cool guest! I think it is interesting that people trust him with pretty large sums of money for wine investments when he doesn’t seem to have that much knowledge about fine wines. But, it is all about “connections” sometimes…

    QOTD… pretty funny! I would have to say that John Lennon is a Napa cabernet, a little full of himself, a little self-important, but quite a likeable fellow… Paul McCartney is a Super Tuscan, pretty lively and spicy, lots of fun, yet absolutely serious and a force to be reckoned with. George Harrison is definitely a K Vintners syrah… a little funky, very smoky and mysterious, but as deep as the ocean. And Ringo… Ringo is a nicely chilled bottle of Arbor Mist… it will do “the trick” in a pinch, but no one takes it seriously… Cheers!

    great show. VERY interesting to hear your combined comments on Jancis. I’ve been drawn to her tasting notes more and more on the Farr Vinters website (London company). She seems more genuine and certain of herself. Parker appears to hedge his bets a bit more.

    Q
    John – DRC
    Paul – Palmer
    George – barbaresco
    Ringo – grange

    Paul: A Burgundy
    George: A red Bordeaux
    Ringo: A Sauternes
