Elyse Winery – C’est Si Bon 2006

This past Sunday night the Baroness and I reached into the cellar to enjoy a bottle from our honeymoon – 2006 Elyse Winery C’est Si Bon.

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).
