    Had this book for years and it is great. Very informative and easy to follow. Highly recommend. I also loved hearing her talk about her opinions. I really like her approach to wine. Thanks for the great show. Jim

    Thanks James. I think its time for me to replace mine. Kind of beat-up due to the many times I have used it. I need to check out her show.
