  1. Jon Bjork says:

    Jo, since you’re streaming the symposium, will these presentations also be available to view later?

    I ask because I’ll be en route to the lunch and tasting in the afternoon, so I’ll be missing most of them.

  2. Jo Diaz says:


    Would you like to be at the Symposium for the entire proceedings, since you’re interested?

    I believe that they will be available after, and am confirming. will get back to you on this one.

  3. Jo Diaz says:

    Jon, yes, the sessions will be available, if you’d like to view, and cannot spend the day with us.

  4. David Glass says:

    Are there any tasting notes on Mettler 2009 P/S

  5. Jo Diaz says:

    I haven’t tasted the 2009 Mettler PS, but I can get them for you, if you’d like. I’ll send an e-mail to Kim, and send them to you, if they exist. Hang in there, David.

  6. Jo Diaz says:

    David, Mettler just got back to me, and they’re still writing those notes.
