Great find!

I heard a talk from John Williams (Cornell alum, formerly of Stag's Leap, now owner of Frog's Leap). He said that when Laube came to Frog's Leap to taste his Napa wines (NOT in this style), it wasn't going too well. The reported conversation was thus:

Laube: John, why did you make these wines so drinkable?
JW: Well, we did some market research and found that people actually like to drink wine!

quote JW, "...and that was the end of our relationship with the Wine Spectator."

I also appreciated the shoutout to "millenials" like myself.

Great video. Nice work.

You need to make the shirt!

Tell them it is worth 1 extra star on your rating scale.

Ill be wearing my "Lenn Thompson's Bitch" T shirt at the Terrapin lol. I just bottled one of my enteries yesterday, so their standing up till the corks expand. Ill do the other tomorow or the next day.

can we have Lenn Thompson's Bitch T-shirts for TasteCamp East??

One day, there will be no Robert Parker. Right now the task at hand is to educate the masses and make sure the trend dosen't continue to spread any further than it already has. Maybe the real threats are the "Parkers" in training.

I'm really glad to be making wine on Long Island. California has clearly lost its soul.
And Lenn, hate to break it you buddy but I don't think Nena will think those shirts are a good idea. Just trying to help you out...

Pimp Daddy Parker is rollin' in Napa with his beatches!

"Rollin down the street, smokin indo, sippin on gin and juice -- Laid back -- with my mind on my money and my money on my mind."

Obviously, smoking the finest cigars, mixing himself some Bombay Saphires and tonic for those late-morning stretches, and sampling only the finest of "juice." Mad money for all, as long as they juice it right!

Someone warn me when we venture into hyperbole or silliness.

@Jason

I think maybe on word one.

Tom, I disagree vehemently. I think I really started to fall apart on word two.

then we agree to disagree.
