    Glad to hear you liked the show. Not so happy you have had many corked bottles. I plan to have a major cork supplier on the show soon who should be able to prvode some additional insight to the problem.

    I have loved Pino Noir for years. It was my little secret. Now with all the attention it is getting from the movie “Sideways”. I hope the price does not shoot up. -Jason

    Price is always and issue when you see wines get a good score. It just basic supply and demand. Wine like the ones made at Loring Wine Company are done in small batches, so when they get great scores year after year (like Lorings) it has an effect. Brian has been very generous not raising his prices (and he could raise them a lot).

    The other big draw back it just finding the wines after those big scores hit. The wines disappear from stores very fast.

    Everybody wants a high scoring wine especially when the cost is so low.
