February 4, 2018

A friend of ours recently gifted us this bottle of Sanglier 2012 Right Tusque Merlot, and wanted to know what I thought about it.

Who am I to deny a request like that…

Bedrocking the Podcast and Tacos

March 13, 2015

Every week, when Jim, John, Jeff (the other Jeff), and I sit down to record the We Like Drinking Podcast, we each bring a different beer or wine to taste during the show.

Typically, I grab some random wine from my cabinet, or pick up a beer from the store on my way home…

I rarely put much thought into what I’m gonna be tasting.

This week was different…

Bedrock Wine Co. 2011 Griffin’s Lair Vineyard Syrah

This week, we had our first guest on the podcast… The incomparable Martin “One Take” Redmond of Enofylz Wine Blog.

Not only is he one of the best wine bloggers in the game today, but he is also one of the nicest guys in the world of wine.  A few years back, when I mentioned to him that I had an interest in Bedrock Wine Co., Martin helped me get my hands on this bottle of their 2011 Griffin’s Lair Vineyard Syrah (a mailing list only wine).

So…

When Martin agreed to be our first guest on the podcast, I found it only fitting to open this bottle.

Griffin’s Lair Vineyard is in the Petaluma Wind Gap, a cool-climate region of Sonoma County.  This Syrah is co-fermented with 11% Viognier, which gives this spicy and lush wine an awesome, floral nose.

Those who have been listening to the podcast should also be jazzed to know that Bedrock Wine Co. does not put capsules on their wine bottles.

Also, this wine goes great with tacos!

So…

Don’t be a knucklehead.
