    Thank you and your team a bucket load of great episodes during 2008…..looking forward to many more sublime viewings over 2009.

    I certainly think that todays episode shows the naviety of consumers and lack of education in the market when there are so many great value plays out there. Gary V – you certainy fill this gap!

    A prosperous 2009 for you and your family (and the family of WLTV).

  • I know I’m a little late but I was with you for #600 along with the wines. it brought our family together for something very fun. AND my mom pulled out rubarb (not a huge winer) about 3 seconds before you said it and I almost pissed my pants. keep rocking, and thanks.

    I like that you’re breaking the extra bottle out for the New Year show! Neat wines, and telling wines! This was a perfect example of how ratings don’t matter (at least to some degree!). I’m looking forward to the blinds, the values, and the really high end wines (that I’ll never drink, but can experience through you) in 2009!

    Happy New Year!

    Gary, thanks for the show on value wines. “long time listener, first time caller” etc. etc. This is the first show I’ve seen in ’09 so thought i should comment. I really like the 2005 Edmunds St John Gravel & Rocks, but do agree with you that the 2004 is a bit better.

    Keep up the great show.

    Oh, btw, tried a very nice Montenegran wine by Plantaze called Vranac. Saw it at a local store for about $14. Was inspired to give it a shot by your Croatian episode.

  • Cary V!!!! You rock.

    I have to first apologize…. i have been a super-lurker! I have been watching since around episode 100 and can count the number of comments i have made on one hand!

    It is my New Years Pledge (not resolution, resolutions are made to be broken…) to comment on every single show in 2009! Some comments might be a little late, like this one (i usually watch at work, hehe) but they will be there.

    Gary,

    Happy New Year, and thanks for all the great insights.

    A comment and a request…

    I’ve had the Catena on multiple occasions. Overall, your review of it was pretty close to my view, but I perhaps like it a shade more. It has been a reliable house chardonnay for guests less serious about wine looking for a reliable glass of chardonnay, though it rather limited.

    It’s been very useful when you tell us that wine x drinks like a $$$ wine, and you then drop a few names for comparison at a quality level. Please continue to do that. It helps us compare to wines we know. Great stuff.

    Have a great ’09. Wine Library TV rocks.
