    I was drinking some nice Ironstone Chard….but it didn’t help my hapless Toronto Maple Leafs either. I feel your pain bro!

    I drank a Casa Larga vineyards Tre Blanc, during the great Buffalo Bills smackdown at the meadowlands. Go Bills!

    GV: Sorry about your Jets! 5 INT’s?!?! Ouch. Could be a Titan fan, so it could be worse. Or like me, a Lion fan.

    QOTD: Went with the Terraces from Chateau Pesquie. Very nice!

    6 interceptions! Damn! I totally understand if you need to take the day off.

    P.S. What was with that field goal fake! My sister can throw better than that.

    Gary, was pretty high on Sanchez the first three games….but the last three….his QB rating yesterday had to be one of the worst in NFL history..like minus 250…..good thing the wine was better than the game, a 2003 Chianti Classico (great) and a 2006 Byron Chard (awesome)…time to let #11 play…….

    Interesting chards for a change.

    QOTD: Tough question since I didn’t watch the Bills beat the Jets. Last night we had our neighbors over for dinner. We started with a bottle of 1998 Bruno Giacosa Roero Arneis that I didn’t think would even be drinkable but it has held up remarkably well over the eleven years. Really nice wine. Then we had a 1994 Gaja Barolo Sperss which was wonderful with the veal involitini. Good stuff. I gave it 91 points.

    Sorry about your Jets. Be patient with Sanchez – it will take some time.

    First, found your site over the last few days, I think I’ve watched a scary amount sofar, your show is awesome. I love the bubbles episodes, I need more about champagne, and not about Legras, come on Gary.

    I totally agree that some oak can be interesting, but the oak monster is far too prevalent.

    QOTD: dropped some nz pinot and oregon pinot in a comparo inspired by the show, both were pretty disappointing, but I’m going to keep tasting.

    QOTD – had a Malbec from Argentina that was in a 1 liter tetrapack (aka, a boxed wine) called Yellow + Blue. (A green/environmental play). Not the best thing ever, but not too bad…

    QOTD – a little late, so I already know the Bills pulled out a heartbreaker in OT. Didn’t drink wine this weekend – it was cold and rainy down in DC so I was sipping scotch to warm my bones. Port Charlotte PC 6 to be precise.

    QOTD: Went to a great new wine bar in DC called Proof. Tried a good variety of 2oz and 6oz pours. They had a killer Sancerre with a looooooooooong finish for days and I enjoyed the Carignan quite a bit too, good balance.

    QOTD: I just got around to watching this episode today, so sorry about the Jets, but I was drinking a LAN Rioja Reserva. Great with food. Not so good by itself.

    Was working all weekend, have been crazy busy in our ER, so no wine for me.
