We trust everyone had a great Thanksgiving and are emptying the fridge from leftovers! Dont forget to look behing the boxed Chardonnay your cheap uncle brought to dinner... ;)
We scored 36 POINTS against the big & bad Denver Bronco's and we looked pretty darn good too! We lost :( We scored a whopping 16 points and allowed the JESTS to get 13 on us and we did NOT look good at all really till the 4th quarter. BUT WE WON!! We'll take it.
So what do we need to do against another stud defense? Plus, The Ravens know how to score points and we are kinda banged up in a few spots! I gotta question... how come Cam Wake was on the field very sparsley? He didnt take abuncha snaps! We NEED to talk about all this and more Thursday evening at 6:30PM EST (3:30 PST)

This is a replay of an archived show from 2011.
They shocked the world by winning the white wine competition for their Chardonnay at the famous "Judgement of Paris" in 1976 and are largely responsible for the wild success of Chardonnay in the States. This summer, the famous Bo Barrett passed the Head Winemaking baton off to Matthew Crafton. The Wine Muse catches up with Matt to find out about his philosophy and see if the pressure of that great win--mythic in nature now--sets an unrealistic standard for him to follow.
He'll also give his opinion on the current state of perception and appreciation of Chardonnay in the world.

Arbor Crest Winery
Join hosts Linda Rez and William Pollard (Wild 4 Washington Wine) for a conversation with the Gilles Nicault, Director of Winemaking for Long Shadows Vintners, a winery that brings together the Rock Stars of winemaking for all the major worldwide wine regions. He is also the winemaker for Long Shadows' acclaimed Chester-Kidder, a Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah blend.
Gilles grew up in southern France and graduated from the University of Avignon with a degree in viticulture and enology. He honed his craft in the fabled hillside vineyards and wineries of Cotes du Rhone, Provence and Champagne. In 1994, already a vintner of rising fame in his homeland, Gilles traveled to Washington State to expand his winemaking.
Impressed by Washington State's vineyards, he stayed in the Columbia Valley, working for Staton Hills and Hogue Cellars before joining Woodward Canyon in 1996, where he stayed until moving to Long Shadows in June 2003. Sharing Woodward Canyon's passion for world-class wines, Gilles soon found Woodward Canyon's founder Rick Small was his ideal mentor and biggest champion. In 1999, Woodward Canyon named Gilles head of enology and production.
Gilles is married to French-born winemaker Marie-Eve Gilla of Forgeron Cellars, an upcoming guest on the Wine Muse show, "The Rise, Fall, and Rise of Chardonnay".
