World's Lurchest Wine Writer - The Gangsta of the Grape - The Sultan of Shiraz - The Buccaneer of Burgundy - The Prince of Pinot Noir - Yellow Tail's Bane - Locus of the Ladies' Focus - Wielder of the trousered Hammer of Thor - I have arrived to rescue the wine world from overly-serious, rigid, deconstructionist, rooster juice peckerwoods who'd never dream of gettin' a tattoo or crackin' a smile. I am without a doubt, the smartest, funniest and toughest sumbitch in the entire wine industry. And I aint goin' away. All disputes will be settled bare-knuckled in the Octagon. You heard me. Oh, and by the way...Bite me crank!

The Lurchest Sommelier of All!

Greetings Boyz and Girlz!

Today your humble Deacon Dr. Fresh is paying homage to Canada's Greatest and arguably Lurchest sommelier:

The Man Himself...

Zoltan Szabo!

Never mind that the dude's got the reputation - Certified through the International Sommelier Guild, a member of the Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers, voted “Sommelier of the Year” in 2003 by the Toronto Sun. Zoltan finished fifth in Wine International Magazine’s global “Sommelier Challenge” and has recently won Tony Aspler’s Ontario Wine Awards – Riedel Crystal Sommelier Blind Tasting competition. ..Well... he's just won another one:
Deacon Dr. Fresh's Sommelier of the Year! Now don't that put all those cracker, mofo, white bread awards to shame? Zoltan has a nose, palate and epicurious sensitivity that shows "Nosey" Parker up for the wine wannabe he is. And not only is Mr. Szabo lurch in appearance and ability, he's one classy homey! Your Deacon bumped into him quite literally at the Air Canada Platinum Club Wine Tasting Challenge the other day (which the Deacon attended incognito so as not to intimidate the mofos and plebs). Zoltan went out of his way to apologize to yours truly, even though it was clearly the fault of the Deacon's size 14's in his path. Now who else in the wine industry would do that? Only Billy Munnelly as I see it.
So for ability, class and general lurchness, the Deacon salutes Zoltan Szabo, as the rest of you should.
You heard me.
