We learned some things in this podcast:
- With older bottles/softer corks – remember to use the two-prong opener.
- When one’s windows are open to embrace beautiful weather – make sure to turn the background music volume up to cover the white noise from the street.
- Discourage dog wrestling during podcast recordings as this causes a near constant clicking in the background as well.
- Better to open a bottle a year or two early than a day too late (which we didn’t here).
But beyond that – we were treated to an excellent example of a California example of Southern Rhone-style Grenache based red wine (think Châteauneuf-du-Pape).
