    1st comment… wow… just listened to it… possibly lamest show ever….

    really a glorified advertisement for the pinot chain… would think that your listeners know more than what this show gave them…

    can’t help but to be sarcastic, but chardonnay first, then pinot, then cabernet…. hmmm… interesting…. have to put that in the thought bank… fyi clos des sens (, a restaurant i recently dined at, could care less about turns… u make a reservation, the table is yours… its no doubt a reflection on the european v. american sensibility as opposed to the pinot chain specifically…

    I have to agree with paul r, this wasn’t the best show you’ve done. I ususally learn something or gain a newfound appreciation for a winemaker or winery. This seemed to be a comercial that presented some really basic information.
