In todays episode, Shelley and Phil head down memory lane with a Throwback Friday (yes, it’s supposed to be Throwback Thursday, we know, but that’s not our brand!) with a flashback to last October when they visited Walla Walla. They taste through two balanced and intensely delicious wines, a Chardonnay from Abeja Winery and Anvil by Forgeron, a red blend. In this episode, Phil admits he might be getting nervous about an upcoming episode. Could this be true? #HappyFriday! #ItsWineTime! #Cheersing

The Cuvée Collective Wine Word of the Week – Balance
Balance is how well the wine can juggle acidity, alcohol, sugar, aromas, and flavors in a single taste. A well-balanced wine won’t have an unpleasant dominance of one characteristic above the rest.
