EPISODE 151: Once Upon a Vine, The Big Bad Red Blend
Who was there:
Jen, Chris, Bryan, Kate, and Tim
- This theme wine, believe it or not, is NOT from Lodi … it is from big distributor Diego (which also brings you Guinness).
- Bryan suggests that we have a blind tasting of random wine flavors.
- We discuss opening a strip club/day care center called “Whiskey Nipples.”
- Chris randomly brings up the topic of regrets and makes us all awkwardly share ours … we all lie.
Notes: cherries, chocolate, vanilla, cocoa … a typical big red blend.
Taste: “big” zinfandel flavor, a hint of sweetness, heavy alcohol, black pepper, and a touch of sweetness and tobacco.

Great with chocolate, pork or beef.
