    Malbec is a great grape, i still believe in blending it with cab. sav. as with Amancaya from Barons de Rotschilde in Mendoza

  • felipeeslava

    it all depends on the consumers^ palate; and Malbec will strike with its power, and must be the beginnig of the “Combo Argentino”: American Steak (from California) with cute, juicy – spicy Malbec from la Argentina.

    Among my favorite episodes thus far (though Heidi Barrett is best-looking one thus far plus possesses wonderful knowledge and has chemistry with GV). I particularly liked the focus on disintermediation in the wine business, innovation, entrepreneurship and how 3 Thieves/Rebel Wine have succeeded by challenging the status quo from packaging to varietals. It all plays in well with Cindy.com and its tremendous success pushing a high QPR. Makes me want to buy bulk wine and brand it accordingly…

    Great show GV…

    Gary — If you're doing a Fiano show, open up a bottle of the Colli di Lapio Romana Clelia. While the 2008 is a little young (it will taste better the second day) this is AWESOME wine!

  • zrm

    More Business talk please!

  • Jeff_RockyRiver

    Good topic, Gary. I had no problem with this type of show (every now and then). Quite interesting to hear everyone's thoughts.

  • JayZee13

    Really interesting conversation about the wine world and Malbec. Fascinating stuff. Thanks.

  • jayhitek

    GV interrupted a guest? I am shocked!
    Enjoyed the 1/2 episode.

  • sonoma M@

  • carlo10

    love the geeking out about the business/marketing side

  • RhoneDrinker

    I remember three thieves – sitting in the CLOSEOUT bin. That stuff was junk. Those guys don't care about wine. They care about making a buck.

  • DAveAll

    too complex to watch. phew.

    Gary,
    Interesting show (pun intended). Really enjoyed it. Can't wait to see the tasting and hear your opinion, but I think I'll go buy a bottle of the Malbec and try it for myself before I hear your opinion of it. I do like their Cab. For the price it's awesome.

    BTW – I live in Nashville so I'm particularly fond of the label being that the Hatch Show Print Gallery is located here.

    GV – Man I love the two parters!

  • Mike in C-town

    Do not mind the business yabbering one bit.
    Plus Joel Gott!

  • ewb

    Love it. Like being a fly on the wall.

  • John_Kenneth_J

    qotd:couldnt agree more that malbec is headed for the road to ruin w quick easy over saturation, I'm seein it already when trying to find malbecs to bring into the restaurant I order wine for.
