88/100

line of the day – ‘if you get your whole nose in there you’ll get a much higher level of sniffy sniffness’

Thought the format worked pretty well and GV handled the tasters very nicely…but the wise-guy in the hat annoyed me (for several reasons; a/ butting in, b/ the smug smile and c/ the hat). Also the sound was non-existent when GV went around the table for opinions. Hope the rest of the week turns out better

    It doesn’t count if GV is number one!
    Good show. I think of the US Open and some awesome latenight tennis.
    Also the hookers at the Waldorf. It was my birthday and it was very tempting but it’s supposed to be a class joint. I had to go to the atm and give one a twenty just to leave me alone.

    G, I really like the group format. Of course, it is your show, but just getting the multiple opinions adds a nice touch. Certainly, not all the time…but every now and then would be cool.

    QOTD: Dirty, awesome, art, smelly, slice, big, overated.

    Good show Gary. I love Portugal too and it’s good to see the country show well for the first day of wine week.

    QOTD: You say New York City, I say good food!!!!!

  • Danielle

    You say New York, I say PIZZA!!!!! Maybe while you’re there you could do a pairing with pizza episode??? P.s. Lovelovelove the portugese wines, sad that you didn’t get a great vinho verde because that is one amazing value wine.

    I like the small group format. Nice change. Maybe a smaller room would’ve made up for the voice-projection-challenged…

    Nice show GV!! NYC rocks!!!

    I love Portuguese wines too, both reds are currently available in Brazil so I definitely going get them. Other very nice Portuguese red that I drank recently was the Esporão Reserva 2005. Very good! I can?t wait to try a Duas Quintas Reserva Especial 2003 from Adriano Ramos Pinto that my brother-in-law Arthur brought to me from Portugal.

    QOTD: NY = Best metropolis on earth. Multi-ethnical & full of culture.

    Best wishes,

    Mauricio Fernandes.

    Gary,

    I enjoyed the interaction you had with the 8 fans, I could really see the educational side of having peeps there tasting the wines with you!!!
    I really have to look for the Portuguese wines here in AUS as they are very hard to come by. Again great show Gary, keep up the good work

    qotd…Best place on earth I’ve visited, its hard to explain to people what NYC is like until they’ve been there to see it themselves.

    Good not great show Gary. Honestly I think it would have been better with just you tasting the wines. Nobody else really seemed to be into it. I dont know?

  • Couves

    Gary, it looks like you picked some pretty representative Portuguese wines. J Portugal Ramos (he?s the winemaker) makes well polished international-styled wines ? very solid, but not really my thing. With Dao reds, the old world character of the grapes usually manages to win me over, even with most of the cheap ones.

    Gary, you?re regressing with your Portuguese pronunciations again! Alentejo ends with a ?joo? not a ?hoe?. But that?s being picky ? great show, I liked how you summarized the comments of other tasters (who we otherwise could not hear too well).

    QOTD: High prices! I remember seeing bagels for $10 each!

    Are you just pushing the Portuguese wine because we can’t find it anywhere other than the Wine Library?…haha

    QOTD: Cuban Steak (cilantro!)

  • Loved the Mark Lemke reference… I see him at every Braves game I go to now as he does the pregame radio stuff right at the entrance of the stadium.

    QOTD:Rangers… They’ve crushed my world in the playoffs, but I do love some Sean Avery.

    GV, great episode…love the insight on the Portugal stills every time. I have to admit though, the leopard hat guy was such a distraction, I was waiting for him to knock the Jets or something so you would knock him out the picture.

    Looked like Sanchez had a rough one tonight, but Washington had a really nice game.

    qotd: NY= High School English Trips, and the NFL Draft

    Beating a dead horse: Could not hear jack from everyone else at the table
