In todays episode, Shelley and Phil enjoy a Grenache from Elsom Cellars, in honor of International Grenache Day, and a Howell Mountain Cuvée from Robert Craig Winery, in honor of the first Cuvée Collective Winery NFT drop. We will discuss that Shelley is still on MLB strike and the Seahawks sit atop of the NFC West, all alone in first place…for now. #HappyFriday! #ItsWineTIme! #Cheersing #ThornyFruit

The Cuvée Collective Wine Word of the Week – Tears
The tears, or legs, will flow more slowly down the sides of a glass with a sweeter wine. Wines with higher alcohol levels will collect a higher density of wine droplets on the sides of the glass than lower alcohol wines. The viscosity of sweeter wines is much higher.
