East Coast Wine Geeks Podcast show

Summary: Who was there: Jen, Chris, Bryan, Kate and Tim What happened: This theme wine, believe it or not, is NOT from Lodi...its 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. Nose: cherries, chocolate, vanilla, cocoa a typical big red blend Taste: “big” zinfandel flavor, a hint of sweetness, heavy alcohol , black pepper, and touch of sweetness and tobacco Scores: Chris-87 Bryan-88 Kate-87 “great with chocolate, pork or beef” Jen-88 “the tannins translate into spices, that makes it interesting”
