Gord Stimmell is the Toronto Star’s wine columnist and he’s written about another fantastic wine. Last year he did the same thing and I couldn’t get the wine for almost 3 weeks because it was sold out. At that time I called Gord a jerk. The irony (and schadenfreude) was that after the article Gord went to his local LCBO to buy his recommended wine only to find out that it was sold out. In the words of Nelson Muntz, “Ha, Ha”.
Gord is at it again. This is from his column this week in the Toronto Star. “Our top three performers on the general list …(blah, blah, blah) … I’ve saved the best for last. The Jacob’s Creek merited a huge 92 score, stunning for a general list wine under $20. …(yadda, yadda, yadda) I am rushing out to buy a half case before this column appears in print. Cheers!”
Maybe it’s just me – but I interpret “cheers” as “nuts to you“. Gord – I can’t find your wine anywhere – and it really only makes me mad because the scope of your influence fills me with envy. You’re a powerful man Gord – I’m scared of you.
