If you have a photo of a wine label from one of their shows, please post it. In Memphis, Ed shared this Barolo which was so good that I bought a case. I would love to try other wines from his selection. Thanks.

    and if I'm not mistaken, i believe he used to drink a siduri wine from the vanderkamp winery? I could be wrong.

    I have a bottle from I believe 08. From what I'm hearing, his winery is really kick ass. Heard he's got some great wines. The one I tried in 08 was ok. But I'm sure he's got that shit down. Cadacus sellers.

    I'm with you on that. You can find plenty of GREAT bottles of red for under $20, matter of fact under $15.

    So do we think Eddie is actually an aficionado or something? Does he subscribe to Wine Enthusiasts Magazine and track which years are the good years for certain vineyards and which are the bad years, and actually makes his wine purchases based on this knowledge??? Because I find that Hard To Imagine. But maybe he does, I dunno. Or maybe he just asks someone else who actually knows wine to avoid the slop and then throws whatever it is back straight out of the bottle without really thinking about it. ;)

    What else would he do with his time? It's not like they tour ALL year. I'd say he def knows his grapes. There's also a clip somewhere I believe Santiago chile in 2013(?) where he's on stage with chelli during Maynard's set. And from what I'm hearing, cadacus sellers is REALLY good.

    Well there are a million things he could do with his time, and he seems pretty damn busy all the time to me. It takes some real time and, more importantly, a specific interest in all the nitty-gritty of knowing wine. Just because he enjoys drinking good wine doesn't mean he really knows wine and has an interest that goes any deeper than how it tastes when he chugs it straight from the bottle. I mean, this is a guy who drank regurgitated beer. :))
    Maybe he is super into it! But has anyone ever seen him sniffing and sipping wine? I've personally only ever seen him slugging it back, slopping it on his shirt, and then passing it to the crowd because it's fun to drink booze. :P

    If it's wine that I had in cincy, it's way worth $40 a bottle. That wine was seriously good.

    I beg to differ. Some of the best italian red wine I've had cost me $12 USD. I've had the pricey stuff before too.

    After the first five glasses you're not drinking for taste anymore be it a $50 or a $10 bottle.
    To the OP, I always have had the opinion that either you like a wine or you don't.

    I agree. I had that wine, too. I would have kept the cup and drank all that was in there, but the security guard made me share. :(

    I had my own cup and shared it with couple of 10C members in my row. Still got the cup with the picks Mikee threw me. Over all one of the best nights of my life. Surreal

    Price is literally meaningless. There are some super cheap wines that are usually pretty bad, but just happen to have an fucking incredible year or two so you can get a $10 bottle that is better than most $60+ bottles, and $60+ bottles that taste like shit because they're having a bad year or a string of them.
    But yeah, if you're going to have more than 2 glasses of wine, go with the cheap shit, because after that it just doesn't matter - you're trying to get drunk (and no shame in that.... unless you've got a drinking problem).

    We weren't talking about quality, we were talking about price. I stand by my comment that $50 isn't considered pricey for wine (any wine, but particularly red wine). If you want to talk about quality, that's a different story.

    I think 2-feign-reluctance's point may have been (and I agree if it was) that the whole concept of what's "pricey" and what's not is also relative. I agree with feign: $50 for a bottle of wine IS pricey in my circles. I've gotten around a bit and had the pricier stuff... Trader Joe's shiraz is totally cool with me. I have also drunk from Ed's bottle (I guess back in the days when he gave us the bottle and we gave it back - aaaah the old days when you got PJ cooties right from the source! :) ), and I will agree that it DID taste extra awesome (it was '06, not sure what brand he was drinking then but it was amazing), so I get the idea that some wines really are worth the splurge. But I agree with feign that while I do realize many in the world spend more than $50 on a bottle on a regular basis, for some of us, it IS pricey (and not the norm) to spend anything more than $20 on a bottle of wine. It's all relative.

    I had the Lilith from Caduceus and while it was good it was pretty damn expensive for a blend. He's (Maynard) is definitely heading in the right direction with his wine though.

    If you want a really good bang for your buck try Los Vascos Cabernet. $10 a bottle. It's a decent wine for the price.

    If you want pricier and tastier try anything from the Howell Mountain region. Kick ass wines.
    Mid range Seghesio and Rodney Strong are good 25-30 bottles.

    I love talking wine people!

    Pretty damn expensive for a blend? What does that mean? Only the US makes a virtue of single varietal wines. (Well, maybe Australia as well). That's something that got started when early US producers didn't have any appellation names to use in marketing (e.g. Chateauneuf du Pape, etc.). Most of the rest of the world sees the value in blends.
