lines of the day – ‘this really does smell like a sheep pooped in your nose’ and ‘I feel like “my tummy’s burning” like Ralph on the Simpsons’

    hey gary;
    not the only way; but certainly one really really good way to not have a dry bird is to deep fry it!! awesome; it has become a family tradition and looked forward to by all. you should try it! and it goes with many wines, but especially an oregon pinot!
    thanks for the show! and CW!

    Nice show. I haven’t had the Rockpile Vineyard Zin, but I have had several other Seghesio Zins and I have generally liked them quite a bit. very good Zin producer in my book.

    QOTD: We are going over my sister-in-law’s house to be with her and my brother-in-law and my mother-in-law as well. My wife’s brother and his wife may be joining us as well. As for wine, my brother-in-law has a pretty nice cellar as well so I will have to check with him first, but I think I will bring a bottle of Tablas Creek Esprit de Beaucastel.

    Going back to the parent’s house to enjoy the secret pack with the fam, and my favorite ex girlfriend. Yes, I’ve invited the ex to enjoy some turkey and the secret pack with the fam. What a perfect combination!

    Hey GV–thanks for doing the zins–always great to get your take on wines.

    QOTD: Staying home, having friends over, letting them decide what to drink. Maybe a Turley, maybe Seghesio (rockpile rocks), maybe a pinot from Selyem. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
