One of the most interesting posts I read was from Bill Klapp on how to decant Barolo . I truly learned a lot from it .
And I always enjoy the posts from Francois Audouze ( what you read and what you read between the lines ) . His tastings of old wines ( also a hobby of mine ) is full of very valuable information .

I don't remember which post it was , but when Rudy's schemes were finally thrown in the open , I loved to read the old posts by the Rudy apologists on the Parker board .

Should have a hall of infamy too for the Maison Ilan ones. Suzanne's 2011 delivery one where Ray was still responding early on is the one that really should be "celebrated".

I'm hurt that no one has nominated my graphite and salinity thread. How many threads include scientific experiments on wine phenomenon? And it was the thread that inspired Katrina BI to refer to "rubbing fleur de sel in [my] wounds." A good time was had by all, I think.

I suggested this to one of the wineries I support and it sounds to me like they are going to do the idea on their next release. My hunch is others will too as this kind of marketing is trusted as part of connecting with customers. I for sure would support people offering a release Zoom, and would attend, Brig.

Yeah, completely agree.

People will look at everything differently and for the better.

I see a time, in the near future, when a winery does the traditional release party with the BBQ, the fixings and pickup but has 10x more people attending virtually.

And small or remote wineries can really leverage this capability.

Jefery Levy's attempt to bludgeon Hart Davis with bad publicity, must certainly qualify as the most inauspicious debut post ever. Don Cornwell's multi-post take-down of Levy is epic.

Victor Hong summed it up perfectly:
That grouse decided to taunt a hunter, not realizing from upstream posts that he uses a fact-magazined, scope-sighted bazooka.
Nothing from this encounter seems left, except burnt feathers scattering loosely in the breeze.

And weeks later, most likely to be months and years, Levy's post count remains at 1.
