Gotta drive down to Willamette Valley (from Vancouver, BC where I live) and taste Pinots all day long! :) Re: music, my favorite song right now is “Hello” by Martin Solveig & Dragonette. Catchy tune, can’t get enough of it! :)

    QOTD: I’ve definitely been rocking the Pandora recently and I’m hooked on the Dr Dre and Snoog Dogg station, haha. Just got the iPhone for Verizon and I’m also hooked on that. First time I’ve had an iPhone, holy smokes, I see why everyone loves them!!!

    I listen to chill music while I work and I’ve been checking out Thievery Corporation recently. Pretty cool stuff.

    Another good show – I like the 3 wine format as it gives you a nice general overview of the region.

    Willamette Valley!! I love Oregon Pinots! Benton Lane gets good reviews when I pour it for guests.

    QOTD: Phoenix. The whole album, over and over and over and over again!!! Feel good Indie rock from France. Great wine, great music!

    Big fan of the Oregon Pinots especially ones around $20….seems most are in the $40+ range.

    Currently listening to the Daft Punk Tron Legacy album

    Good show. Gary did you just get out of bed? HA!
    I’ve always enjoyed the Benton lane (for the dollar). I want to try the other two.

    QOTD: Get the new album from Adele: “21”…she’s great!

    I love Pinots. But seeing as these are all around 20 bucks and I’m a cheap college student, I think you should come to Virginia Tech and tell us about good cheap wines!

    love pinot noir…Adelsheim is very good…like the earthy nose and flavor…think your assessment is pretty acurate.
