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

    Hey Gary, way to go with the Mark Lempke shout out. Of all the “serviceable” infielders you call out my ex- Notre Dame High School teammate, and World Champion, Mark Lempke. QOTD………..easy……Pizza.

    QOTD – the greatest city on earth – so nice, they named it twice!

    Wish I could get into the city this week, but I can’t. Great idea, though – hope it happens again!

    Hey Gary,

    Long time lurker. Solid show today, I really enjoy Portuguese wines and think its great that you push hard for them. Great comments at the end about CA becoming more cookie cutter its a big reason Portugal excites me. Ever had the Symington Family Estates Vale Do Bomfim Douro Reserva 2005? Love it $15.

    New York reminds me of my great-grandfather heading from Havana, Cuba to watch the Yankees play a weekend series way back in the day.

    Burnt rubber on the nose of the second wine? Um…perhaps a fault Gary? Why then was this wine scored so highly?? This mercaptan or sulfuric smell is a fault in wine and therefore the wine should be marked lower.
    I?m all for wines with a touch of VA creeping in, even a smidge of Brett, but when you smell burnt rubber, the wine is generally faulty.

  • How cool it it that Johnny Johnny was there…

    I didn’t like this episode that much. The guests were just like a sort of garnish, they did not add a thing. And the sound was very poor.

    QOTD. New York. The most passionate city I know. The world in one place.

    Good to be back Gary, I’ve had no Internet for 2 weeks so need to catch up on the past eps’s. Portugal reds are excellent wines – no comprimise and long may it stay that way. QOTD: Deli.

    Nice try Gary, but that group did not CRUSH IT. They were boring and the dude’s hat was… well it didn’t bring anything good to the table. I’d rather hear what you have to say than an audience, so your mike was good but if you’re gonna have them talk it would have been goodbto hear what they were saying….

    Good show. Not a real “lively” crew (although I do recognize the Tiki Bar guy from his podcast). Had trouble hearing the group. If you want to continue to do that, maybe make the number 4 tasters instead of 8.

  • Crew was a bit subdued. When you say NY I think of my son who lives in Brooklyn. And maybe the Jets. Can’t see why you were pleased with Sanchez’s performance Monday Night. Kind of mediocre like the first wine. Still like the values in Portugal and am buying what I kind find reasonably.

    QOTD: The Big Apple. Wish I was there.

    Liked the format–8 other guest’s opinions. Even though you couldn’t here a lot of what they were saying, you chimed in and summarized.
