I am on the blackbird mailing list…amazing wines across the board.
Great great show Chris, and you nailed the who tasting notes debate. I can’t stand when critics mention 25 different things when they taste.
That looks like a lot of fun. Fantana is one of my drinking barolos, solid price,nice fruit easy to drink.
Illustration blackbird is one of my favorite wine from cali.
great show Chirs, love your attitude! Borolo is one of my favourites.
SILVIO GRASSO CIABOT MANZONI BAROLO 2004 is my present choice.
Great video, and I think that you did a great job of talking about tasting notes. In fact, this is one of the best descriptions of the challenges of tasting, and the intimidation factor for less experienced wine drinkers. I know I was always self conscious about the fact that I wasn’t picking up all the things that the guy next to me was getting. After a while I finally started realizing that everyone has different palates, and that I’m not always going to get the same thing as the guy next to me.
Ben, thanks a lot. I just checked out your blog. I really enjoyed it. vinotology.com
Thanks, I appreciate that. Always enjoy your vids.
Outside is great, I always go out onto my balcony to get better aromas as we are usually cooking inside and it cab interfere with the true aromas. Great episode.
I agree, many times when I am cooking and drinking wine.at the same time .everything I taste and smell in the wine tastes and smells like what I am cooking. This is a great show with a great opening.
Your crazy…..that is fun….great show.
Very original,great performance..however one problem,your cousin Joe says put on a Net’s hat>you’re from NJ
A lot of great points. I love Blackbird best merlot in Napa.
Chris, what do you have lined up at the En primeurs?
I have an amazing trip lined up. All the first growths,ausone,cheval blanc,angelus,las cases,loeville baron,montrose,beychevelle and the list goes on.
Great point about the 03 barolos being a great buy…I think it is going to be the same with the 07 bordeaux’s
Dead on!! HAAAA
