    Default Wine tasting video blog (vlog)

    Just came across this link off digg.com-

    Wine blog using video a vlog Wine Library TV

    It's a bunch of quicktime or flash video episodes about wine tasting. This dude sounds like a totally insane ENTP. Especially watch the 22-minute video labeled "Wine Temperature Time - Episode #273"... he's just off the rocker nuts, doing a little science experiment with wine (exposing 3 bottles of wine to different temps) and then going through an almost manic string of extroverted babble (begging people to add them to his Facebook, selling a bunch of accessories for cheap, etc.). I found that video quite amusing.

    I'm getting the N preference from the way he describes the wine, using very spatial descriptions while quickly coming up with off the wall parallel references to describe it. It just reminds me of how my own train of thought feels when Ne is hard at work.
    Plus his little jab at people who prefer to drink beer cold... sounds like a distasteful jab at Si oriented people who are trying to "fit in" to the popular established way of being.

    I saw this guy as a guest on Conan O'Brien a few weeks ago and was instantly hooked. He had Conan tasting things like dirt, cherries, tobacco and even ROCKS to try to teach him about the flavor notes in wine. It was very entertaining.

    Yeah, I discovered it a few months ago when he was here in Chicago. Since I like wine, it was interesting to see how he rated some offerings tied to grapes I prefer, and how he goes about describing the tastes. I wrote a wine column for a cheap giveaway pamphlet called "Barfly" in Chicago, but mine was designed to be more down to earth, a bit like that "Regular Guy" film reviewer but not so exaggerated.

    The first one I saw, he compared some wine to his grandfather's gym socks after a good long sweat. After musing over it for a few more seconds, he said 90-95+. I was sold after that.
