Love that you are talking about Champagne but why are you using that glass? You wont get any aroma or volume on the wine?

    Wow, I suggest a bubble show and within 24 hours it’s there! Now that’s what I call thundershow 😀

    QOTD: favorite Syrah? I think from the Rhone Valley, Auguste Clape – 2003 Cornas.

    First Syrah I drunk was a Rosemount, diamond label. I think the 2002 and it got me exploring a lot more Syrah. Ever since, I enjoyed many Syrahs. A friend of me started to explore the big nice world of wine because of Yellow Tale. Those wines do get a lot of people started, so I thank them for that 😉

    QOTD: maybe not my fav, but my current fav is Big Hands – which is Beckmen’s “table” wine. But I have to say, for the price ($15), it’s a fantastic bargain.

    Gary – My wife and I are going to be in the NYC this weekend. When do you want to hit Blue Ribbon?

    Great show! Glad to know that there’s so much more out there in the Champagne world.

    We’ll be in NYC in early January. Any good “neighborhood” (aka reasonable) wine bars you’d care to mention, dear pal Gary? THANK YOU!!

    QOTD: My husband and I tried PET Petit Syrah 2005 by VINum for $10 at the Alamo movie theatre here in Austin TX the other night. What a deal!

  • QOD – Everyday drinking wine – Muratie Shiraz 2005 (South Africa).

    I really enjoy these ‘guest’ episodes. With winemakers as guests it comes across as being hard to critically look at each wine however other industry personalities tend to complement the show very well (just like the NZ white wine episode).

    Keep up the good work!

    QOTD: Thierry Allemand Les Reynards Cornas (2001, although I hear the 04 and 05 are also great). As an under the radar pick, try The Foundry syrah from South Africa (01 through 04 are all great). Or at least was under the radar till the Spectator gave it a good score last month.

    Once again, really love the traveling wine show and especially the champagne. I agree, when you can buy Clicquot at Target…something is wrong! Love the smaller producers.
    QOTD: Lately, Shiraz from Margaret River in Oz. I had a Woody Nook and really enjoyed the it!

  • Good show Gary

    Using the word ‘Syrah’ I’m going to have to say De Bortoli Reserve Syrah – Yarra Valley, Victoria AUSTRALIA! Vicotira is where the magic happens for Australian wines (apart from Riesling and Semillion)!

  • QOTD: We’ve always liked Arrowood’s Saralee’s Vineyard. He co-ferments with Viognier. Lately we’ve scored some Alban Reva from the mail list. It really is in a class by itself, with intense concentration and nearly untamed alcohol.

    Great episode—SEAN—SEAN—I want to party with that dude! Not a big bubbly fan, sounded like the blue ribbon barkeep knew his stuff. Favorite shiraz is quantum from the hidden hills of italy, if you have not tried it it is a must. Can’t wait to go to the blue ribbon.
